American Eagle Outfitters Inc. has added workout and fitness wear to its aerie collection.
Aerie f.i.t., which stands for fun, inspirational and technical, targets the American Eagle female customer between ages 15 to 25. The collection includes leggings, shorts, sports bras and wind stoppers, among other exercise apparel and accessories.
Each product is made from aerie Fit Sweat Free Fabric™. The workout wear is designed to pull moisture away from the body, and includes hidden money pockets, reflective piping and special flat-seam construction.
"Working out is important to our aerie customer, so offering a fitness line is a natural way to complete her lifestyle," Betsy Schumacher, chief merchandising officer for aerie, said in a statement. "Aerie f.i.t. combines fun, inspiration and technical performance in a way that's unique to the marketplace."
The collection is currently available online and in 20 stand-alone aerie stores across the country, as well as 25 American Eagle stores with aerie shops.
The aerie concept was launched in 2006 with intimates and dormwear collections. For the holiday, the company will add personal care items, including a complete lip care line, body washes and lotions, and home fragrance.
American Eagle plans to have 40 stand-alone aerie stores by the end of the year, and open another 50 to 60 stores in 2008.
Shares of American Eagle on Tuesday closed at $22.36, down 2.5 percent, in trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa, flanked by two of his closest friends, models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell.
He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
