The first sweatpant, the precursor to the jogger, is credited to Emile Camuset, founder of Le Coq Sportif. His simple grey jersey pants were created for athletes in the 1920s.
Women's wear designer and cultural icon Norma Kamali was the first to incorporate sweatpant fabric into different silhouettes, like dresses, suits and jumpsuits. She reinvented the material by using it for ready to wear and bringing it into the fashion landscape.
In the late 90s, early 2000s, the rise of athleisure conflated the idea of athletic apparel and stylish essentials. Sweatpants were redesigned to be more fitted and tapered, giving them a greater versatility.
Now, the jogger is a staple of the modern wardrobe. It represents the new lifestyle that embraces casual sophistication. This is what we embraced when designed our fine knit jogger, elevating the silhouette yet again through details that are both aesthetic and functional.
