Beach culture merges with high fashion in this gorgeous colourful microcapsule athleisure range created by Rebecca Russell-Turner for her newly established brand YungClub.
Moving to Sri Lanka to work with the Academy of Design, Rebecca Russell-Turner, a fashion lecturer, designer, artist, stylist and yoga instructor used the lockdown period to conceptualise her collection. She sourced fabrics made from recycled bottles and created a flamboyant athleisure collection that is both fun and quirky.
Justifiably proud of launching her collection within months of her arrival in Sri Lanka, Rebecca says “This capsule collection along with my lifestyle brand, YungClub has pioneered a sustainable new athleisure wear collection that has been solely developed in Sri Lanka. My brand has partnered with local businesses to generate immersive experiences that elevate the physical, mental, and psychological well being that are reflected in the flamboyant androgynous Micro-Collection. My brand embodies the idea of doing more and needing less.”
