This collection came to me as a lover of denim in all its forms - ripped, recycled faded or indigo coloured. Denim has a sense of egalitarianism. It's a leveller; everyone wears denim. I wanted this capsule to command attention with the rank that indigo deserves. It speaks of authority and strength and with any strong woman, there is light and shade.

Created from a blend of blue and purple, indigo spiritually symbolises wisdom, devotion, creativity, fairness, impartiality, justice and dignity. The Dame Denim Indigo capsule comprises our two best selling active bra tops; Infraspinatus and Pectoralis, along with 3 hero styles for the bottom; our long short Sartorius, 7/8 legging Gracilis and full length legging Vastus.
I hope you enjoy moving in these pieces with strength and style.

Whether you're bending backwards in camel pose, meditating, sipping your morning coffee, or going from "workout to street wear" by adding a denim jacket for a new take on double denim, this capsule will take you there.
