Sweaty Betty: Intergalactic
Sweaty Betty is a brand I have increasingly warmed to over the years. As my lifestyle dictates that the best sportswear for me is that which is transitional – where I can go from a workout to a meeting looking slick and styled, I watch brands with keen interest to see how they walk the line and Sweaty Betty have been doing it pretty seamlessly. Their upcoming Autumn/Winter collection has set my heart aflutter. Colour, yes! Pattern, yes! Shape, style and panache, yes, yes and yes!
The inspiration for the upcoming season is the female astronaut in the 70s, making her way in a man’s world. As badass female role models go, that’s a good one. Galactic universes taken from NASA pictures, padded space suits, the Northern Lights and supernatural wonders of the world have all influenced this collection. It’s hard to look through their look book and not say ‘I WANT IT ALL!’
The main thing I like about it is that transitional element, especially in the yoga wear. Check it out when it lands in stores. Methinks the galaxy print leggings will fly off the shelves.
