"The disco lights of the spin studio transport me from within my head. One million thoughts become two – the heat in my thighs and the fire in my lungs. Sweat begins to form, but I won't be weighed down by fabric stuck to skin. I'll settle for nothing less than weightless mesh and a silhouette-skimming shape for the confidence to sit down, stand up or hover between the two. I will the spotlight to land on me and illuminate my certainty. This is the moment to which my day has been building."

"Before every yoga class, I take a moment to set my intentions. This helps to still and focus my mind, silencing the white noise I've carried with me to the studio. With each Ujjayi breath, I want the fabric of my top to stretch without constraint. A built-in bra and high neckline remove the need for adjustment and help bring my attention to the heart chakra. Unleashing my imagination, I can transport myself to the natural world where I coexist with the most beautiful creatures. There I find inspiration from the dragonfly – the delicate pattern of its wings. And I move freely with my shoulder blades exposed and straps like tiny dragonfly bones instilling me with newfound strength."

"The creative process is one of constant metamorphosis. The initial concept is like a caterpillar, and in the end it becomes something entirely different from what we set out to create. Along the way, mistakes may be the seed of genius. So it was when a too-sheer harem skirt was paired with a slip, and a versatile new design was born. No longer just a skirt, but also a jumpsuit in all-natural linen for soft holiday coverage. A garment as transformative as an unforgettable yoga retreat for which it was designed."

"When I run, I run like a girl. And that's a good thing. Steady and strong in my stride, with just enough bounce in my step to lift my spirits for the rest of the day. That's why I need a running outfit that's proud and feminine like me. Crafted from most technical of fabrics, in a bold printed pattern, and complete with a skirt to prove that dressing up is every bit as fun whether you're going out or working out."

"I wish we'd never lose the uninhibited joy of childhood. The inner spirit that tells us to dance for no other reason than we feel like it. To leap and turn and chasse, because walking just doesn't suffice. To catch butterflies in our hands and feel overcome with elation when we release them to the skies. What if an outfit could stir those long forgotten feelings? Remind us to let our hair down. To shake our hips. To rehearse the art of movement by flirting with the fine line between taking and relinquishing control. For this we'd need the freedom to stretch our horizons. A playful look without limits, reversible to suit our mood and elevated by soft navy hues. No plain old black in sight."

"I race alongside cars, chasing the River Thames. Feeling the pulse of London at rush hour coursing through my handlebars. Cycling is my coffee; an extra shot of adrenaline on my morning commute. Everything I need for a successful day in my bag: laptop, a change of clothes for yoga, healthy snacks, my current novel of choice. As I curl over my handlebars and find my rhythm, I need to secure my belongings and trust they are protected from the elements with the latest in water-resistant technology. Because the messenger bag must evolve, just as the modern office has."

"I can still picture the pristine blue seas of the Maldives. Floating alongside the pier. Diving from our family's very own deck to swim with the abundant sea life. Moving from one sport to the next, and rarely leaving the water. It was there I took mental notes of the perfect swimsuit. A two piece with a little extra coverage for comfort while paddleboarding. Enough support to enjoy the odd activity on dry land without spoiling my tan lines. Fitting for a mother, with just enough on show to allude to the skin beneath and awaken feelings of holiday romance."
