Monreal was born out of personal necessity in 2012. When avid sports player and high-end fashion designer Stefanï Grosse wasn’t able to find performance workout gear that would also be stylish enough to zip around in when the match was over, she founded Monreal London, a luxury brand that straddles the line between sports and fashion.
Monreal is a brand designed for women who care as much about style as they do about scoring and who want luxurious, versatile athletic wear that crosses over seamlessly into their everyday lives, looking cool during and after sport.
Monreal collections are exclusively made in Europe, using Italian luxury performance fabrics and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques to create pieces that streamline and support the body, while providing durability and comfort. All garments feature the Monreal ‘zigzag’ logo which is a modern and abstract and dynamic interpretation of the letter “M”.
Victoria Beckham was one of the first Monreal customers when the brand launched in Harrods. Other celebrity fans include HRH Duchess of Cambridge and her sister Pippa Middleton, super-models Elle MacPherson and Karolina Kurkova and fitness blogger Faya Saunders of Fitness on Toast.
The brand is stocked at some of the world’s most prestigious retailers, including Selfridges, Nordstrom, Lane Crawford and Le Bon Marché as well as high-end sports specialist stores such as Bandier in the USA.
