Reality TV star Lucy Mecklenburgh has revealed her new sportswear collaboration with fitness brand ellesse. No ordinary range however, the collection – aptly named Recycled – is made with sustainable and eco-friendly fabrics AND looks so good we can’t wait to get our hands on it
Want to brighten up your gym kit and make an effort to support sustainable fashion? Then check out new Lucy Mecklenburgh x ellesse Recycled collection. Designed by Lucy, the reality TV star from TOWIE, and owner of Results with Lucy programme, with fresh, spring-like shades of beautiful yellows and greens in an arty print, we are literally falling over this range.
The collection includes sports bras, running vests, shorts, leggings, running jackets and even a swimming cossie using recycled polyethylene, one of the most common consumer plastics mainly used in plastic bottles. So not only will we work out and look good in this kit but we’ll be supporting environmentally-friendly fashion and help reduce plastic going to landfill.
This eco-friendly fabric has the Global Recycle Standard (GRS) stamp on it which means environmental standards have been checked along the whole supply chain, addressing traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, and labelling.
In keeping with traditional Ellesse design, the Lucy Mecklenburgh collection adds exclusive camo-like prints in green, yellow and grey, that reflects the environmental message of the range. Lucy has focused on great fits and luxurious fabrics, whilst also making sure the pieces are functional, lightweight, strong, and water resistant.
Lucy has said on Instagram she particularly loves the Allenarsi bra top, which we too are drooling over, especially in the pastel yellow. It’s got extra thick straps for ultimate support, with an elegant halterneck neckline. Unsurprisingly, the leggings are top of our want-list too. The detail down the side will look fantastic with its leg-shaping design.
