​Adidas, Stella McCartney and Grimes team up for sustainable fitness wear

And the pop star's fitness regime is fairly insane
Adidas launches new sustainable apparel

Adidas and Stella McCartney have teamed up once again for a new Fall 2019 collection – which focuses on sustainability.

The range is made with recycled polyester using Parley Ocean Plastic and regenerated ECONYL yarn. That should be good news for anyone concerned about fast fashion and the effects of our clothes on microplastics.

So what’s in the new collection? The highlights are below and can be bought on StellaMcCartney.com (if you can find them).

But it’s not the kit that’s stolen the headlines. The face of the new collection is the artist Grimes, who’s infamous for her off-the-wall comments. And the insights into her workout regime go from the bonkers to the hilarious – and then (probably) the fantastical.

"My training is a 360 approach. I first maintain a healthy cellular routine where I maximize the function of my mitochondria with supplements such as NAD+, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Magnesium, etc. This helps promote ATP and it’s incredibly visceral.”

This is not the forum for in-depth analysis of the claims – but here she’s referring to adenosine triphosphate, a chemical found in all forms of life that promotes intercellular energy transfer. A strong start.

“From that point I spend 2-4 hours in my deprivation tank, this allows me to “astro-glide” to other dimensions - past, present, and future.”

Very Stranger Things 2.

“In the afternoons I do a 1-2 hour sword fighting session with my trainer, James Lew, we go over the fundamentals that work the obliques, core stabilizes, and triceps as well as a few tricks," Grimes continued.

“To wind down from this I spend 30-45 minutes on an inclined hike at roughly 4-4.5 miles per hour, arguably the most efficient workout.”

Check out the rest of her Instagram – as she discusses having eye surgery to reduce blue light absorption.

Pics or it didn’t happen, we say.
