Here’s A Runway Fashion Show With The Emphasis Firmly On The “Run”

Stella McCartney presented her latest collection of athletic wear for Adidas on models stretching, jogging, spinning, and even synchronized swimming. But because they’re models, they don’t even seem to be breaking a sweat.

1. Stella McCartney presented her spring/summer 2014 Adidas by Stella McCartney collection during London Fashion Week.

Here she is posing with a gaggle of models in pastel workout gear and also some sheer pants I don’t quite understand.

2. And now posing with some models who had to jog on the spot for a while.

3. This marbling pattern is quite lovely. If I ever even considered working out, I’d consider wearing this sort of ensemble first.

4. Anyway, look at the models go!

Except, you know, they’re not actually going anywhere, really.

5. You’ll notice a theme developing: Stella standing around in heels while the hard work plays out around her.

(Her dress is from the mainline spring/summer 2014 Stella McCartney collection.)


7. Though this group is certainly lacking in Olympic-worthy sass. They’re basically just upside-down underwater.


8. Not sure the cutouts in these swimsuits are a good look either. Moving on…

9. And we’re back to Stella, this time with some people being hung from the ceiling and tortured for showing up to hair and makeup earlier in the morning wearing Nike sneakers instead of Adidas ones.

10. OK, no — apparently this is a form of exercise also.

11. And I mean, sure, if you’re in Cirque du Soleil it makes sense.


12. But otherwise…no.

13. Also, here’s one model photobombing Stella with her butt.

14. Anyway, here are some more pieces from the new collection. This model got lucky and just has to do a halfhearted hamstring stretch for the duration.

15. Wait, no, she had to jump around a bit too.

16. But the aerobics models definitely had the best jobs of the bunch.

17. And these poor souls landed the worst one.

18. Because spinning class is always the worst. Even if the bikes are painted a soothing shade of pink.
