If you have a love of lycra or a particular passion for fitness-focused fashion, then you’re probably already well acquainted with Nimble Activewear. The brand was founded in 2013 by best friends, Vera Yan and Katia Santilli, after bonding over a love of a great sweat session and the struggle of finding quality (read: durable) activewear. The new James Street location is the activewear brand’s third retail store (and its first in our sunny state!), joining flagship boutiques in Bondi Beach and Melbourne’s Armadale. It’s luxe Valley digs were designed as a space for customers to interact with the brand while discovering its commitment to sustainability, and features an experiential ‘sustainability wall’ created to educate and inspire, while a bespoke light installation highlights the process of how the brand’s custom-engineered MoveLite fabrication is created using recycled plastic bottles.
