Beyhive, it’s time to find your park.
Last week, Houston-born icon Beyoncé gave us a sneak peek of her second Ivy Park x Adidas collection on Instagram, readying fans to empty their pockets. Called “Drip 2,” the collection includes several gender-neutral apparel pieces, which can be worn in and out of the gym; expanded footwear; and accessories. The collection will launch exclusively on the Adidas app on Thursday, October 29, and online and in stores on Friday, October 30.
When the first Ivy Park collection through Adidas (Beyoncé had previously partnered with Topshop but split with the British fashion retailer in November 2018) officially launched in January of this year, it was clear that this brand wanted to redefine traditional norms in sportswear through edgier cuts, elevated colors, and inclusive fits. Beyoncé herself models that mission, sporting the athleisure line in her aesthetically pleasing look book.
Though both Ivy Park collections offer effortless drip with their fitted jumpsuits, jackets, and more, this second launch differs from the first. The apparel offers more inclusive sizing, ranging from XXXS to 4X, unlike the first launch, which only offered XS-XL. Coral, neon yellow, mint, and lime green serve as the second collection’s color palette, a stark contrast to the original monochrome cream and maroon colors that graced the first line. The new launch also expanded their footwear selection, upgrading classic Adidas silhouettes, such as the Ultra Boost, with innovative lacing.
For this second collection, the creative visionary herself encourages her audience to find their beast mode through “their park”—the place, real or imagined, that defines and centers them. In a retro-styled workout video for the launch, Beyoncé discussed how the pandemic pushed her to engage in self-care while staying home. According to Queen Bey, she found comfort in this new normal through Zoom calls and “Fashion Fridays” with her children.
Lastly, it wouldn’t be an Ivy Park x Adidas collection without accessories. Customers can purchase options, such as fanny packs, duffle bags, belts, socks, and hats, to elevate their look.
Prices range $25–200.
