Through The Cold

Finding winter running gear that can check enough boxes to get you take your workout outside; keep me warm, make it functional, and something I actually want to be seen in.  Please and thank you. And it just happened to find a perfect match when we stopped into the newly renovated Nike flagship store in SoHo we found one perfect outfit to run through the cold, instead of from it.

Amazon Is Takes The Field

I often voice my theory that Amazon is slowly taking over the world. The powerhouse claims one more market demographic after another and this time they are taking the field with the release of their activewear clothing lines. They have already claimed the title as the biggest US clothing retail online and projected to become the biggest clothing retailer in 2017 period – surpassing all brick and mortar, department stores, and retail giants. Amazon

Kappa’s Tracksuits Keep Trending

Remember that Italian sportswear brand Kappa? The iconic soccer/football tracksuit has made a comeback in the last few seasons and has returned with an updated look for the Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Kappas trademark tracksuit is a focal point of the collection which features their iconic logo – boy and girl sitting back to back. The emblem, associated with the 80’s and 90’s when Kappa was a big player in soccer apparel. But the brands’ logo represents something

REI Refurbished And Ready For You

  When looking for outdoor equipment there are endless websites to search for gear.  But if you’ve ever had the pleasure of shopping for any of this equipment or apparel you know it comes with a hefty price tag. What if there was an option to pay half the price for a tent used only once, or a backpack that was bought and never used. Not to mention you could help recycle and

Opening Ceremony x Columbia Collab Puts Fashion Into Function

Shopping for hiking can be a huge headache when trying to find clothing and gear that is fashionable and functional. A solution is seemingly nonexistent and the gear out there can fall into one category or the other. A truly fusterating experience when we represent a demographic that wants both. With fashion slowly infiltrating one sport at a time hiking was waiting in the wing. That is until Opening Ceremony broke ground with American outerwear brand Columbia

Winter Sporting Skin Care

When talking about sports and skincare I assume one can only be referring to summer sun protection. With endless references drilled into our brains through the media about the needs of our skin while playing sports in the summer, it seems everyone had forgotten that winter sports need their own skincare routine.  With the Winter Olympics less than 100 days away it’s the perfect time to prep our skin for the

CICLOTTE MODERN EXERCISE BIKE

The majority of home gym equipment design focuses on function, neglecting the aesthetic appeal and lacking the ability to blend into a homes decor.

Introducing the exception; the Ciclotte could carry the first superlative in the best looking or possibly best all around. This designy exercise bike came from one of Milan’s leading designers, Luca Schieppati and produced by the Italian Lamiflex Group that debuted in 2010. Ciclotte coexists within a homes design just as another piece of contemporary furniture.

Fed by Gouter

Heel–Side back with another DC dossier. This time, we’re profiling the mecca of organic, raw tonics called Gouter. These tasty beverages that you can find at yoga studios and organic markets across DC are NOT juices, and that’s what makes them rave-worthy. They’re based on a water, lemon, coconut nectar, and cayenne base with superfoods added for specific benefits. Stretch, Digest, and Balance are some of our favorites, utilizing ingredients like turmeric, aloe, and spirulina.

The Noho Lab by Lululemon

Some people love it. Some people hate it. The all day workout wear ensemble, that some people never seem to take off. Now you can take it off, take it all off… and try this on for size.
