6)Nike and Liberty (Seen above)

Another amazing collaboration, Nike and Liberty London have teamed up to incorporate Nike’s trademark trainers with Liberty’s trademark prints, which seems like a winning idea even before you see the outcome. The Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Nike Roshe Run, Internationalist, Blazer High and Dunk Sky High have all been transformed with a blue and white floral pattern, tied together with what looks like parcel strings (Trust us, they’re nicer than that sounds!).

7) Lexie Sport

Designed for women by women, and made in Britain, Lexie Sport is an up-and-coming label, aiming to make fashionable sportswear. With beautiful leggings and vests, the founder Lily Rice told Virgin that the idea behind the company was ‘a real lack of sportswear that actually performed and looked great’.

8) Charli Cohen

A sportswear brand that’s been featured in Vogue, and worn by model Kate Upton? Just from that, you know that trained fitness instructor and fashion designer Charli Cohen, who wanted to bridge the gap between activewear and ready-to-wear clothing, has done her job right. There’s no way in hell we’d be seen anywhere but the gym in some of our gym clothes, but this collection is so structured and stylish that we’d wear it as many different places as possible, including the gym.

9) H&M

At the beginning of this year, H&M launched H&M Sport, an activewear range designed with the help of the Swedish Olympic team. It includes loads of running separates, as well as yoga wear, water repellent pants and sports bras. With activewear being ‘in’ this year, we’ve even worn some of our purchases from this line out for drinks (yes, really).

10) Adidas x Topshop

Stella McCartney isn’t the only fashion brand who’s teamed up with Adidas. Back in March, Topshop teamed up with Adidas Originals to create a 20-piece collection. It includes tailored tracksuit bottoms with Adidas’s signature triple stripe, as well as slouchy scoop-neck vests with drop armholes, athletic shorts with floral detailing and hoodies baring the Adidas logo. The floral athletic shorts are our favourite!
