Missoni Athleisure: Meet your latest fitness obsession

After all your ‘new year, new you’ gym goals, are you in a bit of a one-month-in slump?

Words by Natalie Westernoff

Fear not, here’s a bit of motivation to get you back on track (literally) – Missoni are launching their first athleisure collection exclusively for mytheresa.com. That’s right, the famous knitted zig zags are now flashing their way over crop tops, leggings and other downward-dog-friendly pieces.


Angela Missoni’s inspiration for the collection was none other than her niece, Jennifer Missoni – an LA-based yoga lover. ‘There’s a big trend in activewear, and as I felt this part of the wardrobe was missing from my regular collection; I decided to create this capsule,’ Angela explains.

There are six styles, all in signature Missoni prints, including tops, trousers, and a jaw-dropping jumpsuit.

Whether you’re a queen yogini or your sun salutations need major work, we’re loving the extra bit of gymspiration in the video below – featuring Jennifer practising poses against the backdrop of the fabulous Missoni house north of Milan, of course. Gymbox in the rain will have to do for us – but we can pretend.

Pieces start from around £240
