i’ve had the same 2 pair of lulu leggings for years- balled to an unrecognizable luon, towel remnant infested… and frankly, never seemed to care. as spring/summer materializes at shops there is an overwhelming amount of rethunk, inspired athletic wear, perhaps some credit to be given to alexander wang. some of it being sort of 50 shades of fit (michi nyc) with mesh inserts and bondage like sports bras, others tech layering (vpl.) with intermix, barney’s, etc. devoting entire sections to the trend- it’s safe to presume fit girls are steppin it up at the gym. lulu is not getting lost in the race- last week i updated with a plum colored techy loose fitting top, and a fresh new pair of ankle length leggings- have to say, i think the modern makeover upped my energy- or at the very least my look five hours post gym, when i’d still failed to change.

good sport



we should all stand up and celebrate the slow death of the yoga pant as everyday leisure wear. i welcome the skinny sweat, the retro adidas pant, perhaps even a drop crotchish tapered number. no matter the mode du jour it is always important to have a cozy alternative for days when jeans feel too restricting. sprinkle in a few athletic socks, baseball caps, a tennis sneakers and voila- even if you don’t break a sweat you’re looking good on the go.
