After what has felt like a relentless battering of wind, rain, snow (as recently as April) and overcast skies, the sun has finally decided to make a long-overdue appearance in London. So swap the indoor treadmill for the great outdoors, breathe in some fresh air and get a bit of glow on your skin. To aid the transition from winter to summer workout wardrobe, we’ve selected a few key pieces of our luxury activewear – from performance leggings to cooling work out tops– to get you training in style.
For those that like to feel stylish and comfortably contained in their workout top, the French tailoring and technical material combine to give the Alexa Tank its sophisticated silhouette with mesh sides, exposed seams, and a soft neckline. Wicking sweat to keep you cool, the breathable two-way stretch fabric allows for easy movement in dance class and at the gym—or out and about in the city. Also comes in Ivoire and Black.
The two-tone elegance of this Ernest Leoty bra belies a hard-working sports garment: with its mesh lining and high coverage, it gives great support for jogging, cycling, or dance, while the performance fabric wicks sweat and resists stretch. The devil is in the detail with supple cups and horizontal stitching that help impart a fashionable air. Also comes in chic tonal combinations of Red/White and Red/Brown.
Whilst the mercury has most definitely risen in the last few weeks in London, some of us might not be ready for full leg exposure just yet. If that’s you, these simple cropped leggings provide comfort, breathability, and muscle compression for Pilates or yoga. Made in France, they have clean stitching and a flattering high waist for a feminine silhouette. Also comes in Navy.
For understated luxury, look to the Adele Bralette. This moisture-wicking bra retain its shape and stretch making it the perfect companion for barre and yoga classes. Great for those who don’t like to look too sporty, it’s sleek and feminine with thoughtful touches like elegant straps and a low neckline. If you fancy a spontaneous dip in the Serpentine after your workout, don’t let outfitting hold you back, the Adele is suitable for swimming!
