adidas x IVY PARK 2.2 Collection Available Now
Back with the other half of her “Drip 2” collection, Beyonce & Ivy Park link up with adidas to bring you “Drip 2.2: Black Pack” which is aptly labeled due to the range of black garments in this collection. Solely-owned by Beyonce, Ivy Park’s namesake is inspired by her daughter’s middle name (Blue Ivy Carter), and the latter being derived from Parkwood Park in Houston, Texas where the singer used to exercise and find personal strength. Deviating from past livelier palettes, “Black Pack” gives you dark, brilliantly-detailed garments in the form of tracksuits & pants, hoodies, tights, and much more.
With aspirations to push boundaries on traditional athletic wear, Ivy Park presents an expansive range of functional and exceedingly-stylish pieces for this drop. With an inclusive range of sizing and gender-neutral fits, Beyonce streamlines the message of unity and inclusivity that resonates with her brand’s ideology. Ivy Park manifests Bey’s love of athleticism with fashion and wishes to convey the message that beauty is more than just physical appearance; but lies in our health, mind, body, and heart. Streamlining a palette of black and mesa throughout the collection, 3-Stripe & Ivy Park detailing also make appearances with identifiable motifs in playful, but established fashion.
Some of the flashier pieces of this collection come courtesy of the Mesh garments and Suit Jacket & Shorts. The Mesh Sleeve Bodysuit being a prime example; finished in a stretchy, sleek polyester upper finished with voluminously detailed mesh sleeves. It’s also completed with a high collar that is secured by a half-zip enclosure. If your preference entails comfort, the Cargo Sweat Pants come finished in a plush, soft French terry fabric that you can easily secure with an elasticated waistband and drawcord enclosure.
With options to accessorize, adidas and Ivy Park provide the Logo Belt and Belt Bag into the rotation. The stylish utilitarian Belt Bag is finished with a nylon twill composition and comes equipped with two different-sized pouch pockets. On one side, we see a larger Ivy Park branded pocket accented by two zippers; on the other, a smaller, 3-Stripe embroidered single zip enclosure. The reversible Logo Belt is also a highlight with its dual-contrasted tones and secured by a fashionable D-ring closure.
