CALLING ALL NATIONS
This season, we are calling all nations and looking inwards to celebrate the P.E Nation woman. It’s all about selfexpression, personal style and mixing the feminine with the masculine. Born of a desire to fuse style with function, P.E Nation is shifting the idea of activewear dressing from fashion’s periphery to front of mind – from the gym to the streets.
The spin this season is for standout pieces in a mix of pure blazing colour and clever prints. Fiery coral, Fluro orange and electric blue is our colour palette of choice with injections of gold detailing and 90s Fluro fonts. The fabrics are more luxe than ever before – there is no holding back now.
The winning combo? A wide leg soft French terry two tone track suit set in pastel pink featuring a raw hem finish and an elasticated waist with a functional draw cord. Wear it high waisted or low and baggy. Invitation to release your inner wild thing with the leopard print story paired back with a colour palette of pale blue, blush and navy with subtle Fluro detailing make for a juxtaposition we’re all in love with.
Motivation to stay active has never looked better than the P.E Nation Ace Action Skort and Ace Action Sports bra – A functional tennis outfit with total mesh perforation for maximum breathability and inbuilt ball pockets. Wear it on the court or opt for the Matte Point Throw tank for a more fashion forward look.
New fabrications boasting squat-proof leggings with excellent recovery power no matter the sweat session. Colour blocked panels, pop contrast piping, and shapewear power mesh makes crossing over from active to athleisure seamless. Blurring the lines with asymmetrical tanks, wetlook hot shorts and oversized sweats in luxe fabrications.
The spray jacket is in our DNA – Introducing the Limitless Jacket – an oversized long line pop over jacket in luxe memory spray. Masculine, oversized shapes in soft, feminine pastels makes the Ace Jacket the ultimate ‘cool girl’ piece of the season. Freshen up your Man Down jacket – a classic P.E Nation shape with an updated mesh sleeve detailing. How you choose to wear it, be it over your active sets on off-duty days or paired back with spray pants for a street edge or even with feminine skirts – it’s bound to pack a punch.
We’ve injected denim into the collection in O.G P.E Nation styles – designed to be worn back seamlessly with the rest of the collection for an elevated street-look. Pair back with the Organic cotton oversized vintage tees or Woolmark yarn winter knits. This season we’ve carefully considered every product in the collection to ensure they meet at least on of four key attributes including human, animal and environmental welfare that align with internationally recognised best practices in fashion.

P.E NATION was concepted in Sydney, Australia by Pip Edwards and Claire Tregoning. P.E NATION is for ALL women, ALL Day, EVERY day. Women are encouraged to JOIN THE NATION, to FEEL included in the P.E mission, to shape the way you live; to FEEL that warm welcome, to ride the journey with the brand, and never look back. Where women can be fit, strong, bold, individual, fun and independent yet supported, and part of a movement of like-minded women doing life, just like you.
Since its launch in March 2016, the brands’ street-meets-sportswear offering has expanded to include extremely technical active wear, nostalgic 90’s streetwear, performance snow gear, accessories, fashion denim and now, a basics range. Always in constant motion, and moving at lightning speed, 2019, sees the expansion of the product categories, exclusive capsules, many global initiatives and like-minded brand collaborations for P.E NATION.
P.E NATION was born from a universal need for multi-faceted active wear, given the global shift towards juggling a fast pace life. The lifestyle trend of women wearing active wear all day, showcased an actual gap in the market, highlighting the need for fashion-active wear: active wear, that is design-driven and led by relevant global fashion trends, with curated seasonal colours, and considered silhouettes, styled and outfitted in a fashionable way, yet working with key performance fabrications and technical properties attributed to sportswear. Couple this, with a distinct and signature aesthetic, that is highly recognisable and un-wavering, and a clear vision and voice for the brand, this has been the very basis of building and creating one of the most coveted and adaptable active wear labels, that is disrupting the global athleisure market, taking on the international scene with verve.
The P.E NATION philosophy is centred around quality design and construction, whilst offering fashion forward, comfortable and fashionable pieces, specifically designed to take you from the studio to street. The brand reflects a sense of strength in unity and community, encouraging women to find their passion and flair and celebrate an active way of life. P.E NATION. Active-streetwear for urban life, lived at fast-pace. Designed to perform, all day, every day.
