The A.A Collective I Shanina Shaik

AJE ATHLETICA explores fresh terrain alongside Australian supermodel Shanina Shaik with the launch of a dedicated social hub and A.A’s most innovative collection to date, ‘Destination’. We welcome you, our A.A Collective community, to join us on Instagram at our new social sanctuary @ajeathletica, your destination for exclusive behind the scenes content, the latest considered activewear and insightful conversations with our wellness collaborators.

Having modelled since childhood, Shanina has walked the runway for the likes of Chanel, appeared in the pages of Vogue and Harper’s BAZAAR, and now, joins the A.A Collective as the face of AJE ATHLETICA’s performance-meets-fashion ‘Destination’ campaign. On fronting the campaign, Shanina says,

“It’s an honour, I believe I embody the A.A Collective girl. I love to wear my activewear for a workout or just for my everyday uniform. The A.A girl is easy going, fun and hardworking. That sounds like me!"

AJE ATHLETICA introduces the A.A Collective; a community at the intersection of fashion, wellness and movement. Where active minds and active lifestyles meet, the A.A Ambassadors are an expansive group of creatives championing a holistic approach to wellbeing; harnessing the regenerative power of creativity in their lifestyles. Creating this strong sense of community, each A.A Ambassador engages with wellness and their surroundings through a sense of belonging via their personal forms of expression and creative fields. Cultural tastemakers, the A.A collective support those around them both physically and mindfully through their creative spirit, the core ethos of the A.A Collective.

Read on to know more about the A.A Ambassadors and move with us in a new era of wellbeing.

Considered activewear for the curious and cool, ‘Destination’ takes you on a journey from classic sporty essentials to hero iconic shapes in crisp steel blue and bold garnet red colour-on-colour combinations to AJE ATHLETICA logos inspired by contemporary streetwear and fastidiously designed details for peak performance.
“Wearing a good activewear set motivates me throughout the day,” states Shanina, “it makes me feel like I accomplished a lot! A high waisted legging, crop sports bra and a puffer jacket are my favourite activewear outfits at the moment. The mornings are cold, and I feel super cozy and sporty when I pair my activewear with a puffer jacket.”

AJE ATHLETICA innovations this season include hybrid corset-inspired crop tops, a bonded neoprene blazer which effortlessly walks the line between function and fashion, water repellent track pants and quick-dry windbreakers, and perforated mesh training t-shirts in recycled nylon.
Shanina says, “the pastel colored puffer vests [are some of my favourites]. They are on-trend and super comfortable! Easy to wear to a workout class. I live in my activewear gear. I enjoy working out and I’m always on the go.”
On her wellness tips, Shanina bodes for daily morning pilates classes, hikes around Los Angeles and “nourishing [her] body with healthy food and 8 hours of sleep every night.” Make the most of your wellness-journey in AJE ATHLETICA, a destination that will streamline your active wardrobe, help you find a sense of renewal and inspire your movement practice.
