Although seemingly unrelated, the worlds of high fashion and sports have a connection that runs deeper than most onlookers think. Whether we’re talking about the sports-centric collections by Prada and Karl Lagerfeld‘s Chanel in the 1990s and early 2000s, or the growing ubiquity of designer sneakers in recent years, fashion has long looked to sports for inspiration. With our love for comfortable athleisure garb reaching an all-time high in the middle of a pandemic, French luxury house Louis Vuitton has even launched a yoga mat as part of its 2020 Holiday collection — covered in the brand’s signature monogram print, no less.
While there is an extensive selection of yoga mats on the market, designer branded ones are certainly hard to come by. In addition to the Louis Vuitton option, below, we’ve rounded up a few other luxury brand yoga mats for the truly fashion-obsessed. From Saint Laurent‘s collaboration with activewear brand No Ka’Oi, to rare archival items of Gucci and Chanel found on resale platform Vestiaire Collective, scroll down for a luxe edit of the fitness equipment.
