You perhaps wouldn't think of sportswear as having particularly high concept collections, but when it comes to Sweaty Betty, a lot of thought goes into the story behind each season.
For Autumn, creative director Tamara Hill-Norton explained "We always try to look at strong female role models, pioneers even, when we are designing a new collection, to strengthen our quest for female empowerment. This season it is the female astronaut from the 1970s trying to make her way in a male dominated world."
Through this inspiration, expect 70s influences, quilting and subtle spacesuit padding, plus galactic prints and other-worldly details. Other inspiration included The Northern Lights, nu-rave neons and day-glo, even the Bauhaus art school has its moment; the result is a collection that goes far beyond just performance. If the idea of the usual dull, dreary, cheap workout kit is enough to put you off exercise all together, Sweaty Betty's more sophisticated and stylish approach is one you'll love.

Tommy Hilfiger is giving you the opportunity to update your wardrobe and help a good cause with the release of a limited edition handbag that benefits Breast Health International (BHI). This is the seventh time the brand has worked with BHI, and this year's project sees the chic navy and red top handle bag being modelled by none other than Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer, in a shoot by legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier.
"Being able to play a part in this admirable campaign means a lot to me," said Naomi. "As my own mother has suffered from breast cancer, and I've seen first-hand the hardships and challenges the illness can cause. I'm a passionate supporter of breast health education, and I'm honoured to be able to contribute to BHI's amazing work."
If you fancy getting a touch of Naomi and Claudia's style, the bag retails at £225, of which €100 will go directly to BHI's Fund For Living. You can shop the bag from today, exclusively at Tommy.com, before anyone else!

If you're trying to avoid a real tan, or maybe you don't tan at all but love the look of a golden glow, your only option is to fake it! If you're put off wearing self tan because you're worried about looking streaky or orange, fear not! It's often not the self tan formula that will jeopardize the finished effect, but the application itself. Simply follow our top tanning tips below to achieve your perfect faux glow!
Exfoliate: Self tan will cling to dry skin which can cause a streaky or patchy effect. Avoid this by gently exfoliating your skin in the shower first. A cleansing glove is ideal to use on the whole body including the more delicate skin on your declitae. Alternatively, use a moisturising body scrub like the Elemis Skin Nourishing Body Scrub (£28.50).
Dry off: Once out of the shower, allow your skin to dry before doing anything else to it. If your skin is still wet and you try to apply self tan, the damp skin could water down the formula for a less intense effect.
Moisturise: Apply a light layer of moisturiser to areas of skin which can be dry like on legs, elbows and around the ankle area. Applying too much moisturiser will make your tan look lighter, applying an overly rich moisturiser can also interfere with the tan formula and the way it develops.
Use your hands: The warmth of your hands will ensure an even application over anything else. Simply wash your hands during self-tanning a couple of times to prevent staining.
Dry off: Once you have applied your tan, allow it to dry before getting dressed. Avoid exercise or getting sweaty for a few hours while your tan develops.
