@GwynethPaltrow is launching a collaboration with @ProenzaSchouler for G. Sport — @Goop’s athletic line. It may have been held off “if it was another category,” said Shaun Kearney, Goop’s general manager of fashion and home. “We discussed holding the collection.” It’s activewear’s connection to wellness and “the Goop community looking to stay healthy” that made this release “a right fit,” Kearney continued. As nearly 40 million California residents alone were ordered to “stay at home” until further notice by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday and other states are likely to follow to help manage the outbreak, wellness — from the mental to physical — has been a rising focus. The limited-edition collection, out online on March 22, marks Proenza Schouler’s first effort in activewear. Tap the link in bio for a sneak peek of the collaboration.

Christian Siriano is Creating Face Masks for Hospital Workers
Christian Siriano is calling for other designers to join his efforts to create face masks for hospital workers. The New York designer responded to NYC Governor, Andrew Cuomo, who said they were in desperate need for the equipment. However, they didn’t have enough to go around, which lead to Siriano’s new venture.
The designer is currently working from home, where he and his team aim to make 1,000 masks a day. “I really think that if anybody still has team members who are sewing or who can sew, especially in New York, we could make a few hundred a day,” Siriano explained. “There are only so many people who work in a hospital. Fashion could really change everything in a week. Look, we have nothing else to do right now. Nobody is buying clothes, so what can we do? I hope that everybody can pitch in.”
