Australian label P.E. Nation is known for its streetwear-inspired colour-blocking aesthetic, which looks as good for exercise as it does for popping out for brunch. Over the past few years the brand has been pushing its sustainability credentials with an ever-expanding conscious edit. Sweat-wicking leggings and shorts are made from recycled polyester, whilst ultra-soft T-shirts are spun from organic cotton.

2. Ref Active

Launched in 2021, Ref Active is the sporty extension of everyone’s favourite sustainable dress brand, Reformation. The collection is made from two different fabrications: EcoMove is for your HIIT class, whilst the EcoStretch fabric is perfect for yoga or simply, lounging. Both are made from REPREVE, which uses 100% recycled plastic bottles. They’ve recently added cute tennis dresses and skirts to the collection, perfect for when Wimbledon fever takes hold.

There’s a lot to love about PRISM² : the brand echoes the ‘buy less, buy better’ mantra as the multi-functional activewear can also be used as sportswear, swimwear, and underwear – saving space in suitcases and underwear drawers. Pieces are also multi-fit: a size 1 fits a UK size 6-16 and adapts with your body like shapewear, taking the faff out of activewear shopping.

7. Ernest Leoty
