Issue three of our online mag, The Brief, has sprung into the world ready to be devoured. Introducing our brand new Bonds Sport range – now available for women, menandbaby. YES, we said baby! We also asked our Rising Social Star, Sophie Benbow, to put our new Bonds Sport range to the test. She’s done all the hard work and tested three popular fitness classes that have us buzzing. What else is in our latest issue? Scroll on!
Just like the athleisure trend, which only seems to be growing in popularity, the hoodie has become the new wear-everywhere top. What was once seen as a school sports staple or daggy knock-around-at-home-in-your-Uggs sweat, has since come full circle in recent times.
Take our new range of Pop Hoods for example. Crafted from comfy cotton with a contrasting coloured hood in a shiny wet-look fabric, it upgrades your everyday hoodie from boring to boo-yeah! Toeing the line between sporty and stylish, it provides a new twist on the classic hooded sweatshirt and has been created in versions for the big kids and the little kids too.
When you think of style, a puffer jacket isn’t the first thing that springs to mind. And yet, so many of us can’t seem get enough of them – living in them 24/7 during winter. Those uber-comfy padded zip-up jackets and vests look mighty appealing when the temperature takes a nosedive. The need to wrap up in something doona-like aside, a puffer jacket can be more than just functional, it can also be fashionable – yes really! It’s time to rethink how we see the practical puffer. Those old sleeping bag puffers that made you look like the Michelin Man have been replaced with fashion-forward styles, which can be seamlessly worn to the gym, office and brunch.
Designed to add a sleek and sporty spin on your everyday ensemble, our new range of Bonds Puffer Jackets and Vests are this chilly season’s staples. With a shiny exterior to give that athleisure wet-look edge, they’re a modernised take on the standard puffer, and are easily interchangeable between your active and weekend wardrobes.
“Today I don’t feel like doing anything, I just want to lay in my bed…”
