If you follow me on twitter you would know that there are three new British Sportswear Brands that have caught my eyes recently. Two of them have already launched their collections over the last two weeks (separate ‘kit essentials’ articles on these brands to follow) and the other is Female Sportswear Brand Gym Luxe, who elegantly fuses technical training with super luxe styling.
I first came across the Gym Luxe Brand when they followed my Twitter account @thiswomansword a few months back and have been supporting them ever since. I’m a firm believer of supporting our own UK talent and love the fact that the brand works with UK manufacturers to ensure all of their garments are designed and made in Britain.
Their first Autumn / Winter 2013 Collection available to purchase is called the ‘Capsule Collection’ which heavily focuses on the use of mesh paneling that is perfectly matched with vibrant, energising colours.
Gymluxe kindly gave me exclusive access to their website prior to it launching on Monday 26th August 2013 and I would like to share a three of my favourite pieces of the collection with you all.
Power Mesh T-Shirt
This striking dynamic t-shirt is made from a lightweight performance fabric and have mesh panels that elegantly reveal the chest, torso and back area and is guaranteed to turn heads be it at the gym, during an outdoor circuit class or when out running *A must have item for all sportswear fashionista’s*
Having seen the back detail of this garment you could probably get away with wearing this elegant and striking tee outside of training for a smart / casual look *this is what I will be doing lol*
The Power Mesh T-Shirt is available in three colours… Red, Blue and Black, available in sizes XS through to L and retails at £54.99.
Diamond Cut Leggings
These aesthetically pleasing diamond cut leggings are the perfect complement to all of the tops, vests and sweaters available in the ‘capsule collection’. They can be paired with the Power Mesh T-Shirt above to give that ultimate edge when training / working out or can be dressed down with their non mesh sweatshirts and vest whilst still looking super stylish.
These Diamond Cut fitted leggings are made from lightweight, matt, sweat-wicking fabric to ensure you remain dry and comfortable throughout the duration of your workout. Diagonal mesh paneling is used on front of the thigh and shin for a directional edge. They are only available in Black in sizes XS through to L and retails at £69.99.
Cropped Draped T-Shirt
This featherweight slouch top is ultra cute and offers the perfect cover solution either during or after a workout *absolutely love the adjustable back detail of this simple but ever stylish piece.
This will look super cool over a sports bra, bandeau or over a vest due to the larger cut outs at the sides.The tee is only available in grey in sizes XS/S and M/L and retails at £54.99.
