StyleOnTheCouch Loves (all over again!): MICHI Athletic Wear

I discovered the amazing athletic wear from Michi New York earlier this year (you can read the post here) and I’m super excited to show you these photos from the new spring summer collection.  Designer Michelle Watson’s aim to combine her love of high fashion with sport and dance results in the most stylish work out gear I have ever come across.  Last season I invested in two bras and one pair of workout pants for pilates and the gym and I can tell I will soon be putting in a second order.

Even though I can’t quite believe I am posting myself sandwiched in between her gorgeous models, I do want to show you that Michi designs really do work outside of the shiny editorial context – the lioness bra is a favourite piece from her autumn / winter collection that I wear regularly

I’ve also worn her designs layered as everyday wear which is where I think her new collection excels.  We see more statement pieces in the form of tanks and panelled leggings.  For 2012 Michi also brings different colour combinations to core pieces which I love

I also think there is greater attention to detail, for example in her mesh panelling, the cheeky lace up detail and the bold cut outs

Inspiration for the spring summer collection comes from Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis” and the colourful birds of the Amazon.  This is revealed in the structure and colour of the new pieces.  If you’re looking for stylish work out gear that combines fashion and function, you can find Michi at Oak NYC.  Soon Journelle will join the list of stockists.

You can also buy from the online store. To follow Michelle and her adventures in design on Twitter, click here. What do you think of the new collection, Blog Reader?

    These designs are certainly a far cry from the Lululemon styles that are so prevalent here in Vancouver, and in the best possible way! And I do have to commend your bravery in posting the photo of yourself, although of yourself you practically look like one of the gorgeous models 😉

    These are great – the designs look strong and feminine. How are they to work out in? Does the outfit give you enough ‘support’?

    You rock that bra like no other my dear. I am in awe of your workout wear. I feel like stocking up at Lululemon is a big deal….oye.

  12. I just love your website! I never really looked at lingerie as a real platform for self expression and style but boy has my mind been changed! The athletic wear looks darling and if I was an athletic person or at least got off the couch, I would so wear one 🙂

    Sarah, you must be the most stylish and daring dresser at your gym.
