We love the Australian’s healthy attitude to life. With an abundance of sun, gorgeous beaches and clean sea air it’s no wonder that so many Aussies spend most of their time outside surfing, swimming and playing sports, whilst looking fantastic doing so. They are a canny lot, and their dedication to being active means that the good, healthy people of Oz have learnt a few things about how to dress well to keep fit. Hence why Hip & Healthy is so excited to reveal that Australian brand, Tully Lou is making it’s arrival to the Activewear Store in June!

The brand’s founder and designer, Tully, believes that looking and feeling good are intrinsically linked, suggesting that “if you look good, you feel good and visa versa”, which is why her collection boasts such serious fashion credentials. Over the past few seasons a plethora of fashion collections have put emphasis on sporty detailing such as mesh panels and crisp structures, and Tully Lou’s latest offerings would not look out of place on the catwalk. Bright, neon piping, sheer panelling and great structural details all pay homage to recent runway trends, and the quality tailoring is sure to flatter any figure. The H&H team has chosen it’s favourite pieces from Tully Lou’s latest collection including two gorgeous variations of the Luxe Crop top and the very hip Plow Pants. Not to mention the Luna Pants, the Harlow Crop and the Parna Pants…

Tully’s experiences of teaching Bikram yoga have meant that she is very tuned-in to wellness and what women want from their sports clothing. Her stylish designs in superior fabrics are suitable for yoga, Pilates, dance and general fitness; and of course, the street. After all, with the pavement being the ultimate catwalk these days there is no better place to show-off some of the latest and most fashionable sportswear post-sweat. We can’t wait to share it with you all!
