While we are totally partial to our Lululemons, there are occasions where a girl requires sportswear with a more fashionable edge. One of our favourites is Monreal London which was founded in 2013 by fashion vet Stefanï Grosse.
Monreal London’s designs are perfect for fashionistas because they work both at the gym and a fashion event. Sure the look is definitely more adventurous – think bold bright colours, funky prints and sporty silhouettes – but many of the styles are super versatile from the sheer white mesh top with multicoloured printed stripes to the drawstring dress which comes with contrast mesh panels, satin stretch trims, and ribbed tuxedo side stripes. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy there are essentials too, be it the signature jacket (which is similar to the trendy bomber) or cropped boyfriend jogger.
The best part is that the clothes feel as good as they look. Monreal London only uses Italian made, high performance fabrics from compression jersey and hydrophilic technology that absorbs moisture from the skin to built-in SPF 50+ UV protection. Then you have the little details that go into every piece – bonded seams that reduce chaffing and add a sporty contrasting side-stripe, laser-cut hems for a clean aesthetic and anti-fade printing techniques.
Sportswear has never been so runway ready.
