Loving My Legskins

At the moment I snapped this fireside photo, I realized I had spent almost the entirety of winter with a second pair of skin on my legs. Legskins by New Zealand brand Courage My Love are made for hot yoga out of technical sporting fabric. The brand uses real artists to create fashionable, wearable pieces of artwork that can go from the studio to a dinner party. From fitness to fashion. I layer them under my skirts to add that extra pop to my ensembles.
As a yoga devotee of thirteen years, I have gone through all of the brands in search of the ideally fitting pant. Most pants shrink or pill which is simply annoying while in the middle of doing Sun Salutations. Not an issue with these legskins. I wish I had had Courage My Love over a decade ago, especially during my hot yoga classes while I was pregnant and nothing fit. These pants are movable, allowing comfort for every body shape in every position. They are lightweight and hold in place during those difficult workout moments when you are being pushed to the limit.
Speaking of those moments, the small photo is of me as part of the brand's most recent media release. I was asked to do a shoot and be featured moving in Courage My Love's latest Freedom Legskins so I flew like a butterfly. Literally, I did sprints for a good majority of the shoot in order to get the right shot for the promo. It was one of the most enjoyably challenging moments of my life but I think the butterfly laden pants did most of the work. They look amazing and feel the same.

A few weeks ago, I was chatting with yoga instructor and Courage My Love designer Persephone Singfield, whose leg is featured in the photos to the right. She was enjoying a very remote winter respite and garnering inspiration for the brand's next moves. Her brand already features artistic designs, zero-waste printing and an eco-friendly manufacturing structure-what else is there?!
