Sydney-based athleisure brand PE Nation is teaming up with H&M on a collection of affordable activewear. The line will include clothing (shorts, jackets, tracksuit pants, skirts and more); swimwear; undergarments; and accessories (bags, shoes, slides) – and everything will be made with sustainable fabrics.

PE Nation founders Pip Edwards and Claire Tregoning have worked with H&M’s in-house design team on the collection, which will be available online and in stores worldwide from March 5. The line uses more eco-friendly fabrics – including organic cotton and recycled polyester – than PE Nation’s standard collections, and will feature the brand’s retro styles at more affordable prices.

Socks will cost $12.99, bralettes $29.99, tights will start at $39.99 and trackpants from $59.99. PE Nation's regular line crop tops cost around $99, while leggings can set you back around $119. Expect PE Nation’s signature giant logos and tie-dye with elastic waistbands, zip details and bold straps. The pieces are designed both for working out and for more leisurely pursuits such as visiting cafes and shopping.

“The collection can be worn all day, every day, whilst being flexible, functional and style-led,” Edwards and Tregoning said in a statement. “All the pieces work so well together – it’s very easy to mix and match.”

The H&M x PE Nation collaboration will be available in stores and online from March 5.
