The world of activewear has never been both as popular and widely consumed as it is now, and so for new brands making an impact on such a saturated market can be hard. However, when a collection fuses high fashion and high performance, it definitely has my attention. So I was intrigued when I first heard about new urban activewear brand LEMA and their desire to dress fearless females. LEMA very kindly kitted me out in pieces from their AW 2016 collection and I took them for a test workout in the Autumnal surroundings of Ravenscourt Park in West London, and fitness photographer Anna Jackson captured the results.
I ran, jumped, planked, lunged and push-upped in my very own urban jungle whilst wearing the Twister leggings, Momentum top and my fantastically coincidental namesake, the Wildcat bra.
It was a fresh Autumn day but the exclusive LEMAWICK fabric kept me both warm and dry, whilst being breathable throughout my workout. I loved the details in all the pieces – the daring mesh panels on the leggings, the thumb holes on the sleeves of the top and stylish mesh panels on the back, and the flattering yet practical cross back design of the bra. But my favourite detail of all is the ladybird logo featured on every piece in the LEMA collection – said to bring good luck, protection and love.
My favourite piece is most definitely the Momentum top – I absolutely adore the colours. Worn alone with plain leggings it makes a colourful yet stylish statement, and the baby pink can be brought out with a pastel hoodie over the top during the Winter. I would feel just as comfortable training in it as heading to brunch with friends. All the pieces look great together but can also be mixed with other pieces to create very different looks.
The Wildcat bra looked stunning under the matching top, but would also come into its own under a plain vest or tank. The Twister leggings with a plain black top would be a smart but very unique gym look and allow the mesh panels to really make a statement. Personally I am not one for showing too much leg when I work out, but these leggings allow me to do that whilst feeling supported and stylish.
If pastel colours aren’t your thing don’t fret – the LEMA collection has plenty more to offer with plain colours like turquoise and grey, bold black and red combinations and plenty of twists on classic black.
