Expected to hit stores on January 2014, the new H&M Sport will offer a wider selection and new designs for more sporting activities, reflecting the increasingly active lifestyles of women, men and children.
The new H&M Sport collection has been designed with input from world-class professional athletes from the Swedish Olympic team, placing the emphasis on performance in garments created with a natural instinct for fashion.
In addition to a new visual identity, H&M Sport will also acquire its own dedicated area in selected stores. The expansion confirms H&M’s long-term commitment to H&M Sport, and its rapidly growing involvement with the world of athletics.
