New Zealand fashion just got comfy-cored

Compiled by Index

Classic 90s sportswear moments don’t seem to date and feeling comfortable certainly doesn’t.

Formerly the uniform of celebrities racing from the gym to their SUV, sweats have taken on a new role in 2020. A staple for most during periods of lockdown but they’re now also a vital element in a new wave of hi-lo fashion. 

While New Zealand might be in the fortunate position of living reasonably free of any pandemic enforced restrictions, this hasn’t stopped a plethora of new sweatshirts and sweatpants flooding the market. Take your pick from a wealth of global choices, from Britain’s classic Sunspel or Japan’s heritage-rich Loopwheeler to the mood-inspired jjjjound or Sporty & Rich. Or stay local with our New Zealand recommends below.
