Why Beyoncé Loves and Hates Running in the Park

by On Jun 25, 2016

IVY PARK is merging fashion-led design with technical innovation. Creating a new kind of performance wear: modern essentials for both on and off the field.

Why Beyoncé Love and Hate Running in the Park

If you haven't heard, Beyonce's new athletic sportswear brand, Ivy Park, dropped online in April 2016. Getfash.com dissected the whole collection and looked at the essential pieces you should integrate into your own sportswear outfits.

Don’t be mistaken, this isn’t another collaboration headlined by a superstar. It is in fact, an actual athletic clothing line with its own office and everything. Besides all TOPSHOP stores, the collection can also be purchased online at Zalora, Nordstrom, Selfridges, and Net-a-Porter, just to name a few.

Since the announcement in October 2014 and supposed launch last Fall, fans can’t wait to get their hands on the collection. Queen Bey’s cinematic teasers certainly don’t make things any easier.

In it, Beyoncé recounts her love hate relationship with a ‘park’ that gave her time to reflect, keep in touch with herself, and taught her discipline. Ivy, is of course a tribute to her daughter, Blue Ivy.

According to the singer, dancer, and actress, she felt that she couldn’t relate to any of the existing athletic brands. Ivy Park is meant to “push the boundaries of athletic wear to support and inspire women who understand that beauty is more than your physical appearance”.

This is done through a tedious development process to in order to fuse fashion with technical performance. Being the poster child for female and body empowerment, this line is but a natural progression.

The new activewear line, Ivy Park, is filled with over 200 pieces of activewear essentials, such as leggings, swimsuits and tank tops, in addition to sporting accessories.
