Australian apparel brand Nude Lucy has released a conscious collection of activewear made from 75-per-cent recycled cotton.
The Nude Active range comprises 16 pieces – crop top, bike short, 7/8 and full-length tights – each available in smoke, rosewood, black and olive with more colours scheduled in October. Sizes range from XXS to XXL underlining the brand’s commitment to exclusivity.
“The colours are muted, earthy tones, the finish is matt, the detailing is minimal, and the quality is sustainable,” explains designer Nilou Zibaee. “It’s designed to be comfortable, versatile and extend beyond your workout.
“The ethos of it is to sit back with the apparel and the feeling we create in our brand, which is this easy, relaxed, slow pace of life. So rather than speeding up it’s about slowing down, creating balance through movement, realignment, restoration, meditation & well being.
The fabric for Nude Active is made from recycled yarn, sourced from post-consumer waste and blended with 25 per cent Lycra Elastane.
“By repurposing this material, we are helping to divert waste and reduce landfill,” the brand explains. “The fabric was carefully developed with Lycra to achieve a high comfort & durable fit that will sculpt and support.”
Swing tags are made from FSC-certified recycled paper and the clothing is packaged in 100-per-cent biodegradable home compostable bags.
Nude Lucy is a brand inspired by the relaxed style of Australian coastal life. The new workout collection was designed to complement the main casualwear collection.
The Nude Active collection went on sale on the Nude Lucy website this week.
