FOR THE GYM FLOOR
Put a sustainable spin on your next workout in a tank top by pioneering Australian label Nagnata. Its activewear is exclusively made from upcycled materials, organic yarns and natural dyes, and the current collection’s ’90s-feel designs can even double as cool weekend wear. Accentuate the retro vibe with Fendi’s shell shorts – breaking a sweat is no excuse for letting your sartorial standards slip.
FOR A RUN
Specially designed sneakers that actually make running easier? Every little helps. Los Angeles-based Athletic Propulsion Labs’ Techloom designs maximize the downward force of your feet to propel you forward. It’s not cheating, it’s science. Keep your outfit high-spec by teaming them with a running top and leggings by one of Gigi Hadid’s favorite athleisure labels, LNDR.
ON THE MAT
When you step onto your mat to practice yoga or Pilates, you’ll need to leave your troubles at the door – the mind is your most powerful tool. And if you’ve ever attempted a shoulder stand and been hit in the face with your tank top, you’ll know that what you wear needs to feel like a second skin, no distractions. Our picks? London-based label Vaara was founded by former model and keen yogi Tatiana Korsakova and is designed to enhance your practice by combining hard-working functionality with a streamlined finish. Yoga-focused label No Ka ’Oi, meaning ‘the best’ in Hawaiian, calls itself an “action couture” brand – it’s a bold claim, but the performance-meets-chic label lives up to it – while lifestyle brand Varley has a deliberately laid-back California vibe to its designs. Try the stretch-jersey wrap tees for a more-stylish-than-most solution to that face-flapping issue.
ON THE SLOPES
These days there are plenty of options that let your personal style shine through on the slopes. For a bold, fashion-forward approach try Cordova (the all-in-ones are epic) or Chamonix-based extreme-sports label Perfect Moment – the vintage-inspired ski suits and logo sweaters are rigorously tested to ensure they provide maximum protection from the elements. If your style is more monochromatic, opt for specialist brands Kjus (founded by a professional racer), Erin Snow and Fusalp – you’ll look like an expert, even on the nursery slopes. And for serious warmth and style, Fendi and Moncler Grenoble are best-in-class for accessories and jackets.
