It’s January. The gym is full, the resolutions still (kind of) going strong. But what happens once we reach the end of the month and all those good intentions to become fitter, stronger, healthier become an all-too-distant memory shoved to the bottom of the pile of priorities only to be dug out again next January? We vow a good gym kit is key to sticking to it. After all, there’s nothing like an admiring glance from the woman next you on the treadmill or a compliment from the most flexible in your yoga class on your new leggings to get you moving. Either that, or pop your new kit on to go to brunch and, you know, let others think you’ve spent your morning at the latest high intensity class rather than having an extra 40 minutes in bed.
Monreal London comes from designer and tennis player Stefanï Grosse, who uses her expertise to create high-performance workout clothing with a high fashion aesthetic. As for the style, Monreal London creates sleek pieces that mainly come in fashion’s favourite colour (black) and wouldn’t look out of place on the street layered under tailored separates. But it’s the materials used that sets this brand apart. Focusing on technical fabrics, Monreal London sportswear is quick-drying, breathable and absorbs moisture from the skin. A no-sew bonding technique, meanwhile, creates a seamless appearance and reduces chaffing.
