Last week Sweaty Betty invited me to the launch of their collaboration with designer Richard Nicoll, complete with a class at Central London studio Psycle. Being a spinning newbie, with just one class at Edge Cycle Bootcamp under my belt, combining another class and a sneaky look and the new SS15 line sounded like a perfect way to spend a chilly winter morning!
Firstly, the class at Psycle was awesome! Unlike my first attempt, I was clipped in to the bike with special cycling shoes which made the whole experience much more enjoyable. I felt I could put a lot more power through my legs, even with my current dodgy knee. Our instructor Rhian put so much emphasis on cycling to the beat, my 5,6,7,8 dancer’s brain loved it! Despite picking up heavy weights instead of light ones, I powered through and felt great after class. I might be becoming a convert!
The Sweaty Betty x Richard Nicoll range is the ultimate in sportluxe. Technical fabrics, unusual Japanese inspired patterns and superior design, the fitness elite of London and NYC will be flocking to buy this limited edition, 9-piece range. Not just to be looked at, the range features reflective components to be both fashionable and functional.
My favourite pieces included the sports bra (pictured below), the double layer vest (behind bra) and loose over-tee (pictured below).
The range will be available online, and in selected stores from February 2015, I can’t wait to spot some items on my clients.
Also at this event were items from the standard SS15 range….excited much?! I love the look of the new range, inspired by butterflies and images from nature. It’s going to be a long wish list I think. Start saving your pennies now ladies!
