We’re taking our gym-to-street shopping obsession offline this weekend by checking out the brand new Carbon38 pop-up shop here in L.A. As one of the interweb’s leading resources for sportswear with major style, Carbon38 rules the online shopping game. We chatted with co-founders and former Harvard classmates, Caroline Gogolak and Katie Warner Johnson (who has also trained stars from Emmy Rossum to Demi Moore) about the sunny new venture and about which pieces we should plan on swiping up first!
Caroline and I are thrilled to partner with Andrea Speir’s new pilates studio. Andrea has been an ambassador of Carbon38 for over a year, so it feels great to support her newest endeavor – and simultaneously be a part of the ever-growing Santa Monica fitness community.
All the pieces we have chosen for the L.A. pop-up have been selected with the California girl in mind. We’ve made sure to create a super-curated collection that includes solid staples, whimsical prints and fashion-forward silhouettes. We feel this selection represents the intersection of the Carbon38 brand, Speir’s devoted (and chic!) clientele and the sunny city we live in.
5 Top Picks Inside L.A.’s Carbon38 Pop-Up
Chill By Will Passion |
Great for those slightly “chilly” Los Angeles nights or “brisk” mornings- it’s not always 75 degrees and sunny here.
Solow Tri-strap Mesh Bra |
We’re suckers for a strappy-backed bra. Add a sultry panel of mesh to the equation and you’ve got the perfect bra on its own, layered under a tank or for sunny beach days.
Private Party Post Pilates Pinot Tank |
If there was ever a tank that sums up the zeitgeist of the moment, it’s this one. Life is all about balance and us LA ladies are Olympians in that balancing act. Added bonus: Private Party is a brand born, raised and manufactured in LA.
Ultracor Silk Abstract Legging |
These pants are magic: a bum-flattering fit, deliciously supple yet supportive material and an elevated print (reminiscent of Santa Monica sunsets), all combined in the perfect performance tight.
Andi NY Large Signature Tote |
Here’s a bag that is chic, minimal and can carry everything you need while on the go. Quality hardware makes for a luxe finish.
