Constellation yoga pants are GO!
Say hello to your new favourite yoga pants!
I designed these astronomically accurate yoga pants from my studio right here in Paris. They show all 88 constellations (count ‘em!) which have been used for millennia to tell stories, for navigation, and as a frame of reference for other astronomical observations. Each culture maps these groups of stars slightly differently, so i’ve chosen to use the International Astronomical Union standards to make these leggings as scientifically accurate as possible. I’ve even drawn each star to scale relative to its neighbours.
Did you know that although the stars in a given constellation look like they’re close together, they’re actually incredibly far apart. For example, one of the stars in Orion is 243 light years away from Earth, whereas another is an incredible 1360 light years away. Wild! If we looked at the stars from anywhere else in the universe we wouldn’t be able to recognise the constellations at all because they’re specific to our unique vantage point. I’m sure humans would have come up with 88 new ones, though.
I drew each and every one of these 88 constellations, and you can be sure that the size of each star is to scale as viewed from the Earth. The fabric is super opaque, no matter how yoga-riffic you get. This is also the first time I’ve asked another company to help me out with sewing production - they’re based in the EU and have the coverstitch sewing machines of my dreams, which means these yoga pants are beautifully finished.
Pre-order is open until midnight on the 30th January 2019, which also happens to be the night before my brand launch, yeehaw!
