Coco Rocha's Gives A First Look At Sportswear Line, Co + Co

We need all these pieces ASAP.

Last month, it was reported that Coco Rocha was going to set her modelling career aside for the design world. And now, the wait is over and the first garments from her athleisure line have finally been revealed.

The Richmond, B.C. model announced through WWD that, in collaboration with Los Angeles-based Paragon Project, she and her artist husband, James Conran, would debut their contemporary sportswear collection, Co + Co by Coco Rocha in 2016.

The collection, which features boxy silhouettes, clean-lined skirts and a whole lot of mesh, is "ath-leisure meets streetwear," according to Rocha.

"You can wear many of these pieces working out, but mostly it’s where sports meet on the street," the 27-year-old told WWD.

The graphic prints of the collection are to be noted. Inspired by the digital world, Rocha and Conran created the prints derived from James' paintings.

“I love tech — tech meets fashion has always been my thing, so we wanted the collection to reflect that, whether it be the futuristic fabrics or the prints.”
