New Sportswear Brand: HPE Clothing

Mix of innovation and design

We all want to look the best we can when exercising. If we're honest we basically want our gym clothes to be stylish enough to distract from all the sweat and our red puffy faces, right? But, for anyone semi-serious about exercising you’ll know that the kit has to work too.

By work, I mean that to get the most out of your workout you need technologically-advanced sportswear, yes, even if you’re last name’s not Ennis. That’s where HPE Clothing, which launches at Harrods this weekend, comes in. HPE stands for Human Performance Engineering and the brand is founded by Nick Harris, a Human Performance Specialist, who has been working with sports stars and musicians to help them get the most out of their performance.


The fabrics in Harris' range have advanced technological benefits like FRESHFIT® material where strands of silver are woven throughout to make the pieces antimicrobial (read: less smelly). There’s a UV-Stretch™ range that offers SPF 40+ protection without the need for lotion. While XT-Air™ fabric regulates body temperature to keep you cool.

With links to Bupa, a collaboration with Jenson Button under its belt and a long list of celebrity fans it’s a brand worth keeping on your radar. If you can’t wait for the Harrods launch this weekend, you can browse some of the collection (more is due soon) and buy online at
