Inclusive sizing continues to charge forward in the fashion industry with a focus on activewear. Girlfriend Collective, the sportswear brand known for its ethically made and inclusive designs, has teamed up with the yoga company Y7 Studio for its latest venture.
Created around the idea of support, the collection consists of a sports bra available in black and white, a smoke gray bike short, and a compressive legging in black. The collection’s pieces—which are made from recycled water bottles—range from 45 to 75 USD, and is available at Y7 Studio.
“We are so excited to finally share this collaboration with Girlfriend Collective,” said Sarah Larson Levey, the founder and CEO of Y7 Studio, to FashionUnited in an email. The studio’s founder shares that the company feels yoga, as well as any other type of fitness, should be inclusive and accessible for every body, aligning with the values of Girlfriend Collective.
This is the first collaboration Girlfriend Collective has launched, the brand shared with FashionUnited. “For us, inclusive sizing is a no-brainer,” co-founders Ellie and Quang Dinh said in an email. “We believe health and wellness come in many forms and that everyone has a right to feel and look their best.”
