And the world of fashion and sport collided this month when Pip Edwards ran into her pal Sam Burgess as she made her way to the gym for a kickboxing sesison. The 35-year-old style guru appeared pleasantly surprised to see South Sydney Rabbitohs star Sam Burgess.
Pip, wearing a matching ensemble from her label, walked towards the rugby player with open arms as she greeted him.
Sam also appeared happy to see Pip, as he participated in a friendly embrace with the blonde.
The slender blonde needed to raise her lithe legs on her toes to reach her arms around the tall, muscular athlete.
The friendly encounter outside was believed to be brief, as rain fell around them in the cooler city climate.
Sam, who was wearing jeans and a white polo T-shirt then headed for the door of the gym with his gear thought to be in his gym bag hanging on his shoulder.
Pip followed her friend into the venue, later posting a snap after a workout to her 94.6k Instagram followers.
She wrote, in part: ‘I just kicked (box) this week to the curb Thanks for the all round sweat sesh.’Sam recently became a father for the first time, with wife Phoebe Burgess giving birth to adorable daughter Poppy in January.
The pair tied the knot in in December 2015.
