Adidas has revealed that it’s upcoming relaunch of Beyoncé’s Ivy Park line will be gender neutral. In retrospect, Beyoncé herself mentioned this in an interview with Elle last month.
“It incorporates my personal style and expands that to include something for everyone,” she said. “I love experimenting with fashion, mixing high and low, sportswear with couture, even masculine and feminine… I focused on designing a unisex collection of footwear and apparel because I saw so many men in IVY PARK. The way they have embraced the brand is an unexpected gift. I appreciate the beauty of gender-neutral clothing and breaking the so-called fashion rules.”
The new Ivy Park collection will be available January 18.
