Looking to build a bridge between luxury women’s wear and modern activewear, Reebok and ba&sh collaborated on the Pas de Deux collection, whose French name translates into “a step of two,” or “created as a duo,” and typically refers to dancing duets, the pair said.
The dance-focused capsule collection, which launched on June 1 on each company’s site, is suitable for any exercise. “To bring together our two core universes, namely fashion and sport, dance felt like the natural medium for this collaboration,” ba&sh founders Barbara Boccara and Sharon Krief said. “Our unique collection will launch worldwide around the theme of Pas de Deux, the ultimate expression of movement of a duo’s collaboration.”
Reebok lent its Speedwick moisture-wicking technology to each of the capsule’s five garments, including the Lux All Over Print Tights and a woven sweatshirt. The companies also reimagined Reebok’s classic Freestyle Hi sneakers, equipped with custom laces and designed with input from ba&sh.
“Dance is one of the most natural ways to blend the worlds of style, creativity and sports,” said Barbara Ebersberger, vice president of product apparel at Reebok. “Pas de Deux embodies the ultimate expression of movement, grace and self-expression, showcasing our two brands collaborating to the same beat.”
Combining performance and luxury, the companies said the collection will have a “relaxed, urban approach to style” and will be available in a palette of beige, black and pink, with prices starting at $45.
