I can't believe they're promoting it as "sportswear". It doesn't look like the kind of thing I would wear to the gym.

In America, anything that is mix-and-match separates is referred to as 'sportswear'. It has nothing to do with sports. 'Activewear' is the industry term for athletic apparel.

I'm very excited to learn more! I do think they have great taste and I do like what I have seen of their style so far.
Can't wait to see more pics!

not sure how true is that? (and i thought it is supposed to be ready-to-wear versus couture?) but if it is true, then i would think whoever in america who coined that term is kinda ridiculous.

i honestly thought that sportswear has a certain sporty edge to it, although it may not really be so, utility-wise.
like last season marni's leggings and stuff can be terms 'sportwear'.
then again, i may be wrong. so please feel free to enlighten me

MeganPatricia is right about the sportswear industry in America. If Marni's leggings were considered sportswear, it may be because Marni doesn't actually have an activewear line, and it better fits in with their sportswear collection. The leggings are not intended for working out and such, but rather as an everyday casual item. Another example would be Juicy couture velour, terry, and cotton, sweat suits. In america you won't find these juicy items in the activewear section, but in the sportswear section of the store instead, right next to the brands Trina Turk, Alice + Olivia, Marc by Marc Jacobs, etc. and i am pretty sure that Elizabeth and James is a ready-to-wear line, whereas The Row is their couture line.

yes, i know, but they are still involved with the line, and they have worked in fashion before...
they probably aren't "designing" this line either...
i guess my point was they aren't jumping into something they know nothing about...

considering where this is going to be sold, the prices are spot on...
it's going to be on the same selling floor as marc by marc, theory, diane vonfurstenberg, vince, etc.
actually it makes perfect sense...more sense than the row...
this is where their target shops anyway (contemporary)...
i agree with all of this...
except for the fact as some have already mentioned...
this looks an AWFUL lot like what kate moss did for topshop...which was not a one time deal, remember...
she will be continuing to do stuff for them...

and you just cannot compare the prices...
why does this stuff cost so much more???...

no-
as it states clearly in the article...
the new line is a 'contemporary' line- which is its own category
and The Row is a 'designer' line...

contemporary is the category just below designer in terms of pricepoint...

there are only a handful of couture houses in the entire world and they are all in france...
ie- Christian Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier, Chanel, etc...
