From Nike’s collaboration with Sacai to Kanye West’s line for Adidas, activewear has been getting the high-fashion treatment for a while now. But how familiar are you with the luxury leggings realm? As it turns out, a pair of technology-infused leggings can actually break the bank.
The New York Times profiled the high-end activewear shop Bandier, which just opened its new flagship in New York City. The shop stocks brands like Lucas Hugh, whose Nordica Leggings will set you back a cool $420. So what makes them different than your standard pair? They come complete with heat-sealed seams and are especially adept at wicking moisture, drying quickly, and protecting against UV rays.
