Luxury Activewear Brand | Designed in London | Silou London

ABOUT

Created for fitness, designed for life, Silou is a luxury activewear brand specialising in clothes that feel good on the body, perform in the gym, shape and support, and are kind to the planet. Founded in 2016 by former model and mother of three Tatiana Kovylina, and marketing entrepreneur and yoga teacher Phoebe Greenacre, the pair created their first range of functional, feminine “lifewear” as a response to their busy lifestyles and the need for multi-tasking pieces that could be worn to the gym and beyond, consciously. Technical yet tailored, Silou clothes are always:

1

Technical

We work with textile engineers in Italy to create luxurious, performance-tested technologically advanced fabrics that are non-toxic, sustainable, moisture-wicking, body-shaping, soft on the skin, long-lasting and high-quality.

2

Thoughtfully Designed

Based on the idea of wardrobe staples, our designs are classic, elegant, seasonless and versatile. Using a second-skin concept, our activewear performs both in the gym and throughout the day.

3

Mindfully Manufactured

Our activewear is produced with dedication and care in sweatshop free production houses in both Lithuania and Portugal, which surpass European standards of good working conditions and fair pay.

Meet the founders

Tatiana Kovylina

Founder

As a working mother of three, a dedicated Yogi, global traveller and amateur athlete, Russian-born Tatiana increasingly found herself living in her activewear throughout the day. This led her on a search for pieces that were feminine, precision cut, high quality, sustainable and multi-use, designed to empower the wearer and enhance their body. Unable to find anything that ticked all the boxes, she was inspired to create Silou, a brand where activewear could be repurposed as everyday-wear; where the pieces resonated with her aesthetic and sustainability ideas, and which were long-lasting and felt beautiful to wear. As a former model for Vogue, ELLE and Harper’s Bazaar and luxury brands including Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Victoria’s Secret, Ralph Lauren and Oscar De La Renta, Tatiana knows that health, well-being and life choices can affect your ‘silou-ette’. She translates this knowledge into multi-functional designs with a shapewear fit that can comfortably and confidently be worn all day long.

Classics are timeless. Style lasts forever. And the decisions we make today will shape our children's future.
