Lucie Loves... Fashion // The Strip Series: Koral Women's Activewear
Oh yeah! #SportsLuxe, Baby!
I’m so excited to share these photos, shot by the talented James Barley, from what we shall call ‘The Strip Series.’ We were approached by Strip Wax Bar (one of THE best waxing salons in London) to model some of their activewear. Something that I didn’t even know they sold. I mean, I knew they did lingerie, but this was quite the treat! We popped a date in the diary, and chose a late morning/early afternoon shoot, to make the most of the natural light that floods into my loft bedroom.
If you’ve not heard of Strip - check out my review of the first Brazilian wax I had done at Strip, 4 years ago, when I first moved to London – it’s an oldie but a goodie!)
Strip’s PR Hannah, came over laden down with bags of pretty lycra, and we set to work shooting each look.
What I’m wearing…
- KORAL Activewear’s sprint high-rise legging in currant-black,
- KORAL Activewear element bra
- KORAL Activewear pace zip-front jacket
It’s a brand that I hadn’t actually heard of before, but whose pieces are such high quality and feel great on.
The basis of any woman’s gym kit will always be a decent sports bra, a durable (none see-through) pair of leggings, trainers and something warmer to throw on over the top. I’m a sucker for a pretty back detail and KORAL are pretty damn good when it comes to including this in their designs. KORAL activewear is just one of many sportswear brands stocked by Strip Wax Bar, over the next few posts I’ll be sharing a few more gym looks – some a bit more out there than others!
Over to you…
