When I first touched the Adidas Stella Sport gear at the launch in JHB the first thing that came to mind was how smooth and soft it was. The colours in the entire collection has this muted vibrance that I love this. I adore the matt look and feel.
When I put on the think patterned leggings it immediately gave me support and a boost. The slightly padded sports bra was also amazing at lifting and keeping everything secure.
This is good thing because the sneakers are so light and bouncy I was jumping everywhere, which you can see in the pics. I must admit I felt so light my inner ninja came out.
I am not a very sporty person but I am active and running around on set is no joke. I have experiences shin splints on 2 sets, that is why I know it is so important to have proper sneakers. The fact that the prints and thick fabrics are easy to take into the day to day make it the perfect sports luxe line. I went from my run to Good Hope FM but after it was so cold I paired my leggings with a trench and spent the rest of the night talking about how noticeably warm it was keeping me. It is actual magic.
We all know I am very passionate about ethical fashion and Stella McCartney is one of the biggest luxury brands for environmentally friendly clothing. Stella McCartney has partnered with the Ethical Fashion Initiative since 2011 (link bellow) Sustainability is a factor throughout all her collections and is part of her brand’s ethos to being a responsible and honest company.
So besides looking good I also feel good knowing I am supporting such an ethically conscious designer.
