So whils't I won't be wearing my tatty gym wear to do anything more than a 'boxercise' class! I may don some go faster stripes, and dip a NET-A-DRESSER'S toe into Sports Luxe this season!

BUT, of course Emilio Pucci's women wouldn't be seen slumming around in any old jogging bottoms. She is a beautiful creature, her sports wear is silk swirled with print, emblazoned with jewels and raffia. Masai tribe inspired colour combinations, even her sports bra dazzles in sequins!

 ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET,GO........
