The Hip & Healthy team have been fans of Lexie Sport since its launch in 2012 and have stocked their performance clothes in our online store since it went live in November last year. We’ve a lot of love for the brand due to their innovative, functional and inspirational designs for women and so it goes without saying that their latest line, ‘The Blonde Collection’ is right up our street. As a result, a few pieces from the line are now available in the Hip & Healthy shop!
The gorgeous Anita leggings are full-length beauties created in a fantastic kaleidoscopic pattern. A clever design decision was to keep the wild print in monochrome colours meaning that the leggings can be teamed with almost any other hue. We love picking and choosing sports bras with pops of bright colour to peep out from behind elegant tees – find our favourite sports bra here. The print adorns much of the collection via innovative panels and cut-outs, so if all over pattern isn’t your thing then fear not, their Lake leggings have a strip down the sides, while the rest is in traditional black.
Lexie boasts that their sportswear is on-track and on-trend. Using performance-enhancing fabrics for trend-led pieces is a rite-of-passage for any burgeoning fitness-wear company, and Lexie marry fashion and function with ease. As such, we will be getting more in from Lexie over the next few months, so keep your eyes peeled for the latest in the H&H store.
‘The Blonde Collection’ is the first that Lexie has had manufactured entirely in the UK, citing that it is, “great, British sportswear made by Great Britain”. The decision to keep the process completely British was an easy one – Lexie’s founder, Lily Rice explains that, “having the product made here means not only will the quality and fit be of the highest standards but that as a brand we are making responsible decisions”. Both stylish and sustainable, this is a collection that will be sure to keep fashion and eco-credentials high.
