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.
I’ve kept this post updated with every single launch… and now it’s launch time again for ADIDAS x IVY PARK Rodeo… a collection paying homage to Beyonces Houston roots by highlighting one of Texas’s most beloved pastimes: the rodeo.
adidas x IVY PARK is set to return with #PELOTONPARK
I’ve lost count of how many collections there have been between adidas and IVY PARK but this capsule collection is the first to feature another brand. And, if there is a crowd that loves activewear, it’s gonna be the Peloton gang.
The adidas x IVY PARK x Peloton promises to continue with the inclusive sizing for every shape and person that we’ve come to love.
Although Peloton have always sold activewear, this is the first time they’ve made moves into footwear and apparel. The company is popular for its at-home workout equipment, which includes spin bikes and treadmills.
It’s unlikely there will be pieces for children – the RODEO collection was the first to introduce pieces for kids in sizes 18months to 16years – but I’m sure they will be back for 2022, if not before.
When Does #PELOTONPARK Drop?
The adidas x IVY PARK x Peloton capsule collection dropped on November the 10th at adidas.co.uk/ivypark* at 11am BST. Early access was granted for ICON & GAMECHANGER level Creator Club members.
Standby to find out if / when it will be available on ASOS.com. I’m not sure I can recommend ASOS UK though – they took 10 days to get my IVY PARK RODEO order to me. Adidas delivery is much quicker at 24-48 hours.
Where To Buy Ivy Park in 2021
Well, since the very first launch, there were a few more collections exclusively sold in Topshop and then ASOS. For 2020, 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.
Well, the first five collaborations dropped and now the adidas x IVY PARK x Peloton capsule collection is here. As before, I envisage that pieces will also available at JD Sports and ASOS in the days after the drop on Adidas. I’ve added an Adidas Global link below; all other links on this page will take you directly to Adidas UK (or your own regional site).
The Peloton Collection:
According to Adidas, the collection merges “style with function … shining a light on the best of the Adidas x IVY PARK collaboration, the apparel and footwear offering features new and signature style updates inspired by the Peloton brand”.
The collection is perfect for layering with a mix of fits in womens, mens and gender neutral styles, from bike shorts and tights with matching bra, to looser shorts and tees that layer over to complete the look.
With 29 pieces in the collection, it features both performance and lifestyle apparel and footwear in neon pops of colour grounded in black and olive in new and signature styles inspired by Peloton.
Accessories & Shoes:
With previous launches, I would always notice more hits on this page which started to happen in late October soo I did my investigations and saw IVYPARK had already posted on Instagram about this upcoming #PELOTONPARK collection.
Someone needs to add me to the PR list. Please and Thank You.
So at least this time, I had a chance to update the post before launch day. If I’m honest though, I’m a little over this constant hype so I’ wasn’t sure if I was gonna purchase anything – assuming the Adidas site even works and that I can actually get what I would want!
Things seem a little calmer in regards to the shopping process for the last couple of collections. As with other items, you add to your basket and check out… but you’re probably advised to be as quick as possible so you don’t miss out.
Oh, and pray the Adidas payment portal actually works.
I was about to shop the range through early access, added the pieces I wanted to my basket and started checkout then as I was about to pay, the screen refreshed and said my basket was empty. I’m taking it as a sign lol
I assume the early access was only until 1030am?!
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 and JD Sports where select pieces are typically available a day or two after the main launch.
For what will now be known as DRIP 1, they released the stock of the Adidas range bit by bit and for Drip 2, it was pretty much the same premise, so don’t worry… you will get a piece or two.
Each range, there has always been something for everyone. And the Peloton collection has an array of feminine pieces in standard sizing and plus size. They’ve also brought back gender neutral pieces this time, in addition to a decent selection of mens pieces and just the one pair of Ultra Boost and no other accessories.
#PelotonPark | adidas X IVY PARK (November 2021)
November ’21 Drop: each collection seems to come with its very own colour palette and the Peloton Park collection is a a mix of olive green and fluorescent yellow. This collection is highly functional for indoor cycling and fitness, still with the fashion-driven edge thats synonomous with IVY PARK.
The stylish functionality of adidas x IVY PARK meets Peloton’s inclusive approach to fitness through self-empowerment.
This capsule from adidas x IVY PARK x Peloton updates its essential styles with colours that instil confidence, empowering all to step into their power.

Accessories & Shoes:
Number 2. Ivy Park Pricing
In comparison to previous ranges from back in 2016, the new adidas collaborations are quite a bit more expensive. Usually the accessories have been the most affordable pieces but this Peloton collection doesn’t include any.
The small capsule collection is actually quite affordable, dare I say so. The most expensive pieces are the gender neutral Long Windbreaker (£160) and the Ultra Boost Peloton x Ivy Park (£170). They’re the only items over £100 too.
Previously I’d always said if you’re used to shopping in lululemon or Sweaty Betty the prices won’t put you off. Although ICY PARK was next level with prices, these pieces are ‘smaller’ (literally) so don’t seem as crazy expensive.
Number 3. Ivy Park Sizing
In the past, the sizing has always been pretty true to size. Recently, sizing was updated with a number of different fits including tight fit for women, oversized for women, plus size pieces, gender neutral regular fit and gender neural oversized.
Specifically, the RODEO collection has been “crafted with every shape and person in mind” featuring silhouettes for all genders, with sizes ranging from [XS] to [4X].
Here’s some guidance on how to choose the correct size:
Order your usual women’s size for a compressive fit. For a slim fit that’s less compressive, size up. It’s designed to accentuate the female form, this tight, compressive fit hugs every curve.
Order your usual men’s size for the oversized look. For women, it’s recommended to size down. These items are oversized, genderless, and made for impact, this fit is large with volume throughout the sleeves and body.
Yes! Order your usual women’s size for the oversized look. Crafted specifically for women, this oversized fit makes a statement with its loose and voluminous proportions.
Order your usual men’s size for a regular fit. For women, we recommend sizing down. Created for every body, this genderless fit will be larger on women than on men.
I’m a UK 10 and according to the size charts, I *think* a XS is the size for me in gender neutral. Last time, 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, and the Small worked out okay.
It took me multiple attempts to get my order placed in November and randomly I never got confirmation via the website but did get email confirmation. This process seemed to go a lot smoother for the Rodeo collection so I managed to order a few pieces:
What I TRIED TO ordeR (PELOTON):
For the FLEX PARK drop, I tried to purchase a couple of the pieces that still had my sizes left, but the site says payment is declined no matter what option I chose.
My Rodeo order seemed to go down soooooo smooth. All sizes were still available – so maybe people are just a little over the hype?!
Previously, I opted for Size 10 (S) in the womxn’s pieces and XS for the gender neutral hoodie. On the site they advise your regular size for a tight fit, and size up for a slim fit.
Number 4. It’s Kinda Fashion…
As per the first four adidas x IVY PARK collaborations, this collection continues with the more sporty urban street vibe to it than previously.
It still is very much a fashion line though and you’re gonna stand out in the bold prints and colours.
Number 5. Get Your Discount
Although Adidas offer a student discount on their products, you can’t use it or any other discounts and promotions on this collection. You do however get fast and free delivery if you spend over £50, which isn’t hard! Creator Club members also get free delivery on all orders so remember to log in.
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!
So, which IVY PARK collection has been your favourite to date?!
