Pins to Thrill
If sauntering about town in super comfy but not at all daggy Aussie-made yoga pants is your thing, you might want to check out Pins to Kill. Despite the slightly homicidal-sounding name, the new Melbourne label by Linda Vydra actually offers the chance to dress your pegs in stand out leggings you can design yourself. Just upload your own print or artwork, choose your size and lycra type, and then wait for the goods to be delivered direct to your postbox from Melbourne, where each set is printed and sewn on demand. You can even scrawl your own motivational message in giant caps across your left leg, and pop a customised message inside the waistband – which might prove handy if you’re prone to losing your stuff. Or, for the lazier folk among us, Pins to Kill has its own colourful range of pre-designed leggings featuring delightful pineapple, parrot and lemon prints, among others. Linda’s keen to support women chasing big dreams and has already mustered up a crew of P2K ambassadors from around the world, including pro-surfers, actors, ballerinas, pole dancers, hip-hop dancers and models. That means her Instagram profile is an inspiration rabbit hole, full of seriously awesome women clad in seriously cool leggings conquering some of the most beautiful places in the world. It’s little wonder Pins to Kill sold out just a couple days after its February 2 launch. Happily, killer pins are once again go.
