If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember I was lucky enough to attend the preview of the launch of Ivy Park at Topshop Oxford Circus back in 2016* when it first launched in the UK. As the event got closer and closer, I got so excited! I went from 0 to 100 in about 5 minutes of entering the building!

When I got home just before midnight, I jumped straight online to write the original version of this blog post. I shared all my immediate thoughts with you before you dived in to do your own shopping, especially surrounding how the Ivy Park sizing came up and share a little about the pieces I picked out for myself.

Where To Buy Ivy Park in 2020

Well, since the first launch, there have been a few more collections exclusively sold in Topshop and then ASOS. Most recently, Ivy Park announced that they would be joining forces with Adidas to launch the adidas x IVY PARK clothing range. I’m a huge fan of both brands so I was excited to see what came of it…

adidas x IVY PARK is Here


Before the launch the website just had the below text:

YOUR POWER, OUR PURPOSE. 
YOUR FREEDOM, OUR MISSION. 
YOUR STYLE, OUR MUSE. 
THE FIRST-EVER CAPSULE COLLECTION 
OF ADIDAS X IVY PARK IS COMING SOON.

Number 1. There Will Be More…

The number one need to know about the Ivy Park collections was always, and still is, that there will be more. After the partnership with Topshop came to an end, Ivy Park then partnered up with ASOS but that seems to have come to an end since this launch.

I’m sure they are releasing the stock of this new Adidas range bit by bit so don’t worry… you will get a piece or two.

Each range, there has always been something for everyone. And it seems this new range even has lots of unisex – or gender neutral – pieces. It’s packed full of what I would call urban streetwear – sweaters, hoodies, t-shirts, caps, beanies, a harness bag, joggers, cycling shorts, a fanny pack…. Check out some of the collection below…

Shop The Current Ivy Park Collection:

Tip – When you add an item to your basket, you have 5 minutes to check out. If you add something else your five minutes starts again but that doesn’t leave you long to choose. So I’d browse, decide (and choose sizes according to instructions), write a list, then go in and add to your basket.

    Number 2. Ivy Park Pricing

    In comparison to previous ranges, this new adidas collaboration is a little more expensive. I mean, the socks and beanies are the cheapest items at £21.95!

    The most expensive piece of clothing is the Ivy Park Convertible Track Top at a penny under £130. Other than that, the adidas IVY PARK Nite Jogger Shoes are £140. If you’re used to shopping in lululemon or Sweaty Betty the prices won’t put you off.

    Tip – If something you like is sold out, just check the website again in the following days. I wanted this Ivy Park backless cap on launch day but it was sold out. I added my email address to be notified when it came back in stock and as yet haven’t heard back. However, I went back on the website to get some more info to update this post and guess what, it’s in stock again!

      Number 3. Ivy Park Sizing

      In the past, the sizing has always been pretty true to size. However, with this range being gender neutral, you need to pay a bit more attention to this. For example, the crew sweatshirt says: “This item fits true to size for men. Women should go 1 size smaller than their usual size.”


      What I ordered:

      I was unsure with the sizing for the sweatshirt and went for Size: 10 (S) with the only other viable option being 6 (XS) which I figured would be too small. When I get the items in a couple days I will take pictures and update the post (for like the hundredth time lol).


      Number 4. It’s Kinda Fashion…

      As I mentioned earlier, this collection definitely has a more sporty urban street vibe to it than previous ones. In my opinion though, as with previous ranges, it looks like the range is not all functional. It is very much a fashion line with a few less sequins than before.

      I basically live in “athleisure”, so that really doesn’t bother me.  It’s nice to separate my sports wardrobe into “stuff I exercise in” and “stuff I don’t exercise in” even if at the end of the day it’s all sports wear.

      Number 5. Get Your Discount

      Although Adidas offer a student discount on their products, you can’t use it or any other any discounts and promotions on this collection. You do however get fast and free delivery if you spend over £50, which isn’t hard!

      If you do purchase any pieces from the range tag me on Instagram (@ellelinton) so I can see what you chose and how you rock it!

          Hey Cindy, I assume you mean a UK 7? …I think the collection is completely sold out now 🙁 but I would think you would just choose your regular size as they’re for fashion rather than for function! Let me know if you find yourself a pair though!

        I'm not sure about it to be honest, too reminiscent of the Nike gear with Nike on waistbands etc. I'm worried it will be too close to athleisure and not close enough to actual sportswear. The only piece I really like is the bodysuit with red piped edges!

          I get you. To be fair, there is nothing new to be created in clothing, never mind sportswear! And, like I said, not everything is functional. I trained in the tank today and it was fine… it's just a tank. I chose it cos I like the cut (I have a similar one from Barry's Bootcamp). …hahaha! The bodysuits are cool.. I didn't try them on or even touch them so don't know if they are functional or fashion (some are swimwear too?!) …but I'm not a bodysuit kinda girl 😉
