It’s official: Beyoncé and Topshop are working on an activewear line together, which they announced earlier today with a press release.
Philip Green, the owner of Topshop parent company Arcadia, told British Vogue this will be more of a partnership than a collaboration; a whole new team will be hired to run the Beyoncé line. It will consist of “active streetwear,” kind of like Alexander Wang’s line for H&M or Cara Delevingne’s DKNY range.
Now, Beyoncé can rock a red carpet gown and off-duty jorts with the best of them. But chances are, when you hear the name “Beyoncé,” you picture her in a bejeweled leotard, her preferred garment for performing, with her hair blowing in the breeze thanks to a permanently-switched-on wind machine.
It’s tough to imagine a Beyoncé clothing line devoid of her favorite performance-wear, the leotard. Her range will have to include one or two. Therefore, this could be the final push we need to incorporate everyone’s favorite crotched-but-leg-less garment, the leotard, into our workout and streetwear routines.
