Smith brings a slick use of color and an elevated eye to Love & Sports, an exclusive Walmart Activewear brand that Smith launched last year alongside SoulCycle fitness instructor and fitness instructor Stacy Griffith.
What’s nice about this collaboration is that Smith and Griffith are a real-life couple — hence, the “love” in Love & Sports. What their combined strengths—Smith’s fashion-conscious sensibilities and Griffith’s expertise in the fitness world—generate is a range of sports bras, outerwear, T-shirts, leggings, sneakers, and accessories in vibrant colors and easy silhouettes perfect for breaking a sweat (the duo has also released several Swim styles for the summer months.) Love & Sports’ latest drop last month featured 120 items ranging from $12 to $42 in sizes XS through XXXL.
This isn’t Walmart’s first rodeo when it comes to hooking up with high-end designers. In 2021, mega-retailer enlists Brandon Maxwell — who has dressed Meghan Markle, Essa Rae, Lady Gaga and Blake Lively — to launch a contemporary Walmart fashion line Free assembly. Is Walmart on its way to becoming a one-stop style store for every type of woman, whether she lives in trendy streetwear or everyday activewear? Only time will tell.
