Downtime is one of the most cherished luxuries in modern life. Brunello Cucinelli was acutely aware of this fact when he set out to create the world’s most indulgent loungewear. His plush hoodie and matching joggers are impeccably made. The iconic designer considers his casual separates “a celebration of the human touch,” cut by hand from the finest natural materials that feel decadently soft against the skin.

Brunello Cucinelli’s eponymous label has ushered in a new expression of everyday luxury that he calls "sporty-chic.” The collection combines tailored and informal elements to achieve a sense of elegant nonchalance. “I like to mix and match, this is my spirit,” Cucinelli explains, as he works to deconstruct sartorial dressing to create a truly comfortable wardrobe. Traditional pinstripe pants are relaxed with a drawstring waistband, while a casual sweatshirt is elevated with cashmere yarns. Despite an impressive Italian pedigree, the clothes always remain unpretentious and effortlessly cool.

The principles of athletic design have been applied to designer tracksuits that’ll take you from the spin studio to the city street with ease. Top brands like BOSS and Dolce & Gabbana have created lightweight sweater and jogger combinations in streamlined silhouettes. These minimalist outfits are crafted from breathable cotton jersey fabrics with dynamic stretch. They’re equipped with drawstring waistbands and a multitude of utility pockets for a relaxed look with urban edge.

Diesel takes the evolution of denim a step further with an innovative contribution to the athleisure movement. The brand’s JoggJeans are engineered to be put through the paces. This modern hybrid combines the stylish appearance of jeans with the soft feel of sweatpants. Its shape retention and elasticity allows for ultimate freedom of movement. Complete the casual look with a leather varsity jacket and you’re ready for whatever the day throws at you.

Moncler’s performance apparel is packed with modern details that epitomize its motto, “born in the mountains, lives in the city.” The alpine brand is a pioneer of updating sporty staples in a luxurious context. Here they’ve elevated the classic virgin wool sweater with a down-filled collar and hemline to lock in body heat. The coveted label’s equally cool joggers are finished with contrast grosgrain trim and zippered ankle cuffs.

Diesel Black Gold has raised the bar on what it means to embody athleticism. They’ve cleverly upgraded the traditional cotton jersey pullover with bold accent stripes in deep burgundy and black. The streetwise outfit is grounded by a pair of stretch cotton drawstring joggers. The progressive Italian label’s tailored sportswear proves to be a triumph of style and comfort, reaching new sartorial heights.
