Unzipped: Bronwyn Cosgrave
The London fashion consultant and author opens up her Moschino gym tote.
Bronwyn Cosgrave is Vogue-certified. She's the former features editor of British Vogue, a regular contributor to the brand's international editions, and the author of the book Vogue On: Coco Chanel. The fashion consultant also recently curated Designing 007, Fifty Years of Bond Style, a retrospective commemorating 50 years of the James Bond film franchise. For a woman as comfortable in couture as Cosgrave, there's a high fashion standard for everything, including cardio sessions and cycles around London. Here's what makes the cut:
"Because I’m a multi-tasker most everything in my wardrobe — including the bag I take to the gym — is multi-functional. I tote this one because it is minimalist, lightweight and a little bit glam. So it can take me from a business meeting to the gym and then on to dinner."
American Apparel leotard
"I’m usually on the go and carrying my computer, or a few books in my bag so I need no-fuss fitness-wear that takes up minimal space. This American Apparel leotard was the perfect solution. I like its 1980s retro Jane Fonda vibe."
Ralph Lauren socks
"I’m picky about sport socks. I like soft cotton ones and after testing a few pairs discovered that Ralph Lauren black socks feel and look good."
Japanese body brush
"This works wonders to exfoliate and soften the skin. I use it before stepping into the steam room or shower and then follow up with a moisturizer."
Eve Lom morning cleanser
"Eve Lom’s two-minute cleansing balm comes in a tube and is my gym kit alternative to her legendary cleanser which is in a pot."
Indie Lee Squalene facial oil
"I discovered this fantastic facial oil at Equinox Chelsea last summer. I apply it after I’ve been in the steam room."
John Frieda luxurious volume root booster
"This root booster pumps up my tresses which always need TLC after an effective workout."
A good book
"I like reading for pleasure while I am exercising and, yes, I will hold onto a book while I am on a cross trainer, or prop one up, if it is good read like this one: Patrick Leigh Fermor, An Adventure by Artemis Cooper."
