Brand Watch: Le Ore by Jennifer Bandier
Here’s the thing…
In the last few years luxury activewear has cemented itself as champion of the fashion world. In lieu of skinny jeans, leggings and formal workwear, we’re now enjoying athleisure in all its glory. But how do you do it right?
For me it’s about investing in those beautiful fabrics and trying out everything to find those clever cuts. It’s buying pieces that make me feel like I’ve made an effort (even though I’ve just grabbed it out of my wardrobe in a hurry).

During my time away from the blog, shops and generally becoming a hermit on my laptop (when not covered in baby food) I’ve grown a list as long as my arm of new brands that I’m absolutely obsessing over. So to start, let’s chat Le Ore by the amazingly talented Jennifer Bandier (www.bandier.com).
If you like brands such as Varley and Khaite then you’ll love Le Ore. It’s a brand designed for smart shoppers, shoppers who want basics but luxury statement basics. It’s for customers who choose long term style over fast fashion. It’s the link between 1990s aesthetics and designs that are practical for yoga and pilates. Le Ore also uses recycled fibres and SoftSculpt fabric which is renowned for its flattering fit.
My first dalliance with the brand was this beautiful Lodi ribbed-knit wrap-front cardigan that I wore for my daughter’s first birthday tea. It’s not just a wrap over top, it’s cleverer than that. It’s soft with a flattering arm length to suit my tall frame with gorgeous cuff detail. I feel like a little ballerina whenever I wear it!
There’s so much to love about the brand and so much more to look forward to. Here’s what else I’m loving right now…
