P.E. Nation reflects Pip’s tomboy attitude and a truly retro feel that encompasses 90’s music, street style and high-tech activewear. The brand is about versatility and functionality whilst being fashionable; “for women like me, who are juggling work, life, home, motherhood.” Pip adds.

“When I select designer pieces, I pick the more casual pieces and mix them back with denim, trainers and tees to make the look be more natural and effortless.”
