Speaking to Mail Online, Matilda said: "The pre-sale was completely unaccounted – nobody knew about it and was only available to VIP's and those tuning into the live runway stream for our launch party last Friday night.

"It was open for 25 minutes and totalled £109K- we took a chance as we've never done a surprise pre-sale before, and it was really well received!"

The eye-catching shorts come in various different colours – black, sage, blue, brown, beige and dark grey and a designed to flatter any body.

Matilda: "Seamless is a revolutionary new way of making activewear products – from the fit, to the colour pallet, our seamless collections really are 'premium pieces'.

As well as the coveted shorts, the line includes seamless full-length tights, crop tops and long-sleeve tops. You can view the full line on the STAX website.
