“Work Out Work is meant to remind people that this can be worn at the gym or at work and other occasions. Also that we need to ‘Out Work’ to achieve life’s goals,” says designer Helen Lee. While we know Helen Lee for her prowess with pretty flirtatious pieces, the venture into athleisure - in collaboration with Lane Crawford and The Woolmark Company - is a first. What excited her was the chance to work with new materials and figure out how to meld fashion and function.
The reality of exercising and working is close to her heart. “I feel great when I push myself to try something new or go a bit further. The social aspect is what keeps me coming back its great to work out with friends and accomplish something together, it really builds friendships,” says Lee. And also helps generate ideas.
“Merino wool is very lightweight and durable making it great for working out and for styling up.”
The Work Out Work capsule includes sweat-tops, leggings; work out pants and comes in an energising colour combo of black and primrose yellow.
