River Island Active: a sportswear launch in Stockholm

RI Active launch

What a pre-weekend it was; the launch of River Island Active in Stockholm. A true dream. Which flew by way to fast. As I am currently on my way to pick up Popcorn, I’m happy as a kid since I missed her like crazy. But oh my, looking back on the amazing time we’ve had in the Yasuragi Spa, the question remains why we’ve ever left that place.. Seen my Snaps?! It was such a holistic experience. The Japanese and the simple, uncluttered is characteristic of the aesthetics we’ve met there. Besides the whole wellness ride River Island took us on, meeting their new – and first! – sportswear collection was a true pleasure. The 23-piece range features stylish shorts, sport bra’s, camo tops, slim fit leggings, and even fleeces, padded gilets and hooded ponchos. All ergonomically designed and assured with compact stretch and comfort fit fabrics so you’ll be all comfy throughout your workout session. Focusing on ‘fusing fashion with function’ the RI Active line uses sleek silhouettes and premium sports fabrics to target women like me who want to look great whilst working out. With darker hues of black and khaki you just can’t go wrong and the flashes of neon yellow and the hints of camouflage print make the collection absolutely amazing in my opinion. What do you think? And have you ever been to Stockholm? Tell me!

My name is Frederique and I run this personal style blog. After graduating from law school in April 2014 – University of Utrecht (The Netherlands), exchange: Uppsala (Sweden) and UC Berkeley (USA) – I built FAB le Frique from scratch and decided to spread my lifelong interest in fashion and lifestyle with the world (wide web). Taking a leap of faith, making a career transition, leaving a known and charted career path is scary. But if the only actual obstacle blocking me from doing what I’m truly passionate about is ‘fear’, I hereby conquer my fears and go forward with my passion.
