Shop local: 9 UAE athleisure brands we love


Whether you’re home on vacation, running errands, or working up a sweat at the gym…

When we work remotely, our home office uniforms become the same t-shirt and leggings on repeat. While we may be back in the real world now, we’re making our everyday looks an ode to pandemic dressing.

Find out more about Dubai’s exciting collection of athleisure brands: with bold colours, soft fabrics and sustainable production, these home-grown labels are the perfect casual look for running errands, traveling or working out.


Meaning “rejuvenation” or “giving life” in Japanese, IKASU is a Dubai-born athleisure brand known through its collaborations with top female figures in the Middle East. Since conceived in 2021, collections of sports bras, t-shirts, leggings, shorts and more have been cancelled, with brands like Mona Bin Kalli, Kika Fourzali and Haya Sawan. The pieces come in mix-and-match styles, all crafted from carefully selected fabrics to flatter every body shape while remaining functional. Recently, IKASU has also added a new line of swimwear. Prices start from AED 160.

NO-VA Athleisure is an athleisure brand focused on creating comfortable activewear, whether you’re wearing it to work out or run errands around town. The men’s and women’s collections are perfect for your next gym session – including a range of sports bras, shorts and leggings, but are also perfect for heading to cooler climates, as there are also jackets and coats. Tank tops and crop tops work well with tights and leggings in soft, lightweight fabrics ranging from standard black and navy to more abstract prints and patterns in bright hues.



Dubai-based luxury activewear label Maeya specializes in functional pieces that are perfect for working out without compromising on style. Their new collection comes in four styles in two beautiful prints that can be mixed and matched to create a unique look for your next class or workout session. Whether you opt for subtle animal prints or vibrant baby blue or blush polka dots, you can pair leggings and sports bras with your collection of short and long sleeve tees just the way you like them. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, Maeya takes care to ensure the fabrics used are both supportive and stylish. Items start at Dh120 and are available online or at locations across the city, including FitnGlam in Mirdif and Dubai Hills Mall, as well as FitRepublik in Sports City.

One of Dubai’s biggest home-grown successes in this area is the Donate Campaign.

Designed for women, men, and now even kids, the collection offers t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, joggers, jackets and more in a variety of colors. The fabrics are 100% sustainable and all products are locally sourced in the UAE at affordable prices starting at AED 199. As an added bonus for UAE residents, same-day delivery is available throughout the emirate.


glossy lounge

Glossy Lounge, a sustainable loungewear brand, has already amassed a legion of local fans. We love their brightly colored, ultra-soft two-piece suits, which are equally convenient whether you’re working up a sweat at the gym or binge-watching Netflix throughout the day. Glossy Lounge is the brainchild of Natasha Zaki, the beauty entrepreneur behind Glossy Makeup, and all pieces are designed and made in the UAE from eco-friendly fabrics and recycled materials.
