Whether you’re sprinting or sun-saluting your way to 2014’s finish line, rest assured you’ll be doing so in luxury activewear.
With a number of designers showing sport-inspired 2015 collections, the fashion world has confirmed what we in the Golden State, and co-founder of Lolë activewear Eva Guerrand-Hermès—yes, that Hermès—have known all along: Yoga pants are an acceptable substitute for skinny jeans. And nowhere is this more applicable than in L.A., where, as Guerrand-Hermès notes, in a day “you can go from hiking in the mountains or yoga on the beach to a business lunch.”
On the heels of launching her brand’s second California atelier in Brentwood, filled with practical, essential pieces, she observes, “I believe that Lolë gives the fashion-forward yet active Angeleno a solid ‘studio-to-street’ offering.”
For Guerrand-Hermès and a number of “family-oriented and career-driven” ladies who call the Westside home, to live actively extends beyond the confines of classes at next-door Maha Yoga or gluten-free brunching at A Votre Sante to include engaging with, building and giving back to the community. The space engages its brand motto “Live Out Loud Everyday” by hosting in-store Meditation Mondays, promoting craftsman indie brands like Cali favorite SeaVees and offering a litany of meet-up exercise classes open to the public. 13050 San Vicente Blvd., Ste. 208, L.A., 310-393-0555; lolewomen.com.
