Remember when you could not find leggings in anything other than black? Snooze fest. Although I of course appreciate and wear black tights and solid colours, I’m a big fan of brights and prints when it come to my fitness gear (a brilliant pattern can almost mentally energize me for a run sometimes). Such as these pretty painterly tights from Nuvango Gallery & Goods.

The Toronto shop on Queen St. West recently came out with an activewear collection of shorts and leggings ($59 and $99). The first collection features more than more than two dozen works of art, each made in collaboration with one of the gallery’s artists. Made to perform well (so yes, the fabric is sweat-wicking and odour-resistant) but in eye-catching designs such as this print of ocean waves in a soothing green tone. Available in store and online at www.nuvango.com.
