Lucy Mecklenburgh, online fitness guru and self-proclaimed fitness fanatic, has joined forces with ellesse to make her debut as a designer!

Lucy’s worked tirelessly to create a collection unlike any other ellesse has produced. The outcome is a stylish sports range for women with a unique feature, it’s recycled!

This capsule range is the first of its kind for ellesse, created to showcase how thoughtful design and creativity can care for the environment whilst also standing up to the technical expectations of active wear.

The collection recycles polyethylene terephthalate (PET); one of the most common consumer plastics found in water bottles, meaning ellesse are now playing a part in reducing the amount going into landfill sites.

Essentially the use of PET in each garment creates a process that spans the full cycle of workout necessities; from originally providing vital hydration to the user in the form of water bottles, to ultimately providing exceptional sports apparel.
Lucy worked closely with Senior Sportswear Designer, Becky Minors, whilst designing the collection; “Lucy’s creativity has come into fruition during the design process. Her focus on selecting key silhouettes with great fits and luxurious fabrics, whilst maintaining the full functionality of each product has been a huge asset to the collection.”

“The recycled sports collection shows qualities of its unique material – shapeable, and resilient, it moulds to the body in a perfect fashion to create the finest fitness apparel.”
