COS active parka

I’m trying not to write endless lockdown posts but…its hard! While it’s doom and gloom for a lot of sectors, I imagine there’s going to be an upswing in workout and cycling-wear upstarts and collections.

I’ve never been a gym person but I’ve found myself doing almost-daily stretching and barrecore videos (Rod on Psycle Instagram Live is my fave) and even quite enjoying them.

COS has a head start with its new COS Active collection*. It’s a mix of recycled fabrics and seamless designs (I guess they produce less waste?) alongside techno performance fabrics. I’m actually not big on stretchy activewear (leggings – ugh!), so I’m gravitating towards the Prada-esque parka, the cropped engineered jacket and the classic grey hoodlie.

P.s. if you’re into cycle stuff, then check out my friend Jacqui’s cycle bag company, Goodordering. She is also now selling these nifty reusable handmade masks.

But two things jumped out at me. (more…)



Nike – just did it



Mr DRG is quite the trainer connoisseur, having spent far too much time and money on them during the first wave of sneaker-freakery back in the day. Here’s his guest post on his latest Nike fixation…

I love the way that Nike has been updating classics from its archives over the last few years. Not such a stange statement you might think, but this comes from someone whose mantra is a fixed, ‘don’t mess with a classic, it’s classic for a reason’. Yet Nike is pulling it off, time and time again. (more…)



Perfect pairing: everyday Nikes



Nike tech hyperfuse breathable windrunner Air Max Lunar1 JD Sport

Nike is on a big drive to make things weightless and streamlined, all the better to help you zip through your workout working week. As such, its Tech Hyperfuse windrunner and new Air Max Lunar1s are a winning combination. I’m not a fitness fan (have I mentioned that?) but I love Nike. (more…)
