The aughts called, and they want to make velour tracksuits a thing again. (Yup, it's 2016.) It's been well over a decade since Juicy Couture's bedazzled errandswear became wardrobe staples across America, and oh, how times have almost changed: JC superfan Paris Hilton is a "DJ", her partner in crime Nicole Richie is a full-fledged fashion hero and designer, and retail cheerleader Kitson is totally dunzo.

Two years after the SoCal-bred brand pulled the plug on all of its US stores (they were "no longer representative of [...] the brand's future") and appended "Black Label" to its name (it's a new era, folks!), Juicy is enlisting the help of VS Angel Behati Prinsloo to boomerang its matching lounge suiting back into our closets. Considering that the two-piece athleisure look enjoyed a major revival at Chloé and Fenty x Puma, its post-Hilton comeback could very well happen.

Next month, the label formerly headed by Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor is set to unleash its Behati x JC collab, which ranges from $28 for a bandana and $149 for gold slides to $138 for velour boxer shorts and $238 for a matching bomber jacket (in your choice of white, black, or turquoise). The 26-piece capsule is set to launch Friday, April 15th—are you feeling it? Peep your eyes on more JC 2k16 below, see the full collection here, and share your thoughts in the comments.
