Founded 13 years ago by Chip Wilson in Vancouver, this yoga-inspired athletic-apparel company has opened its fifth NYC location. The store’s decor takes on an Art Deco theme, with vintage wallpaper, windows outfitted in red velour curtains and custom Bocci light fixtures throughout the fitting rooms. Though the threads—including quick-drying sports bras ($42), women’s form-fitting cropped pants with wide, patterned waistbands ($68) and men’s short-sleeved tops with mesh venting ($64)—are designed with downward dog in mind, they work just as well for running and other athletic activities. There’s also a slew of accessories, such as travel-friendly duffel bags ($128), dense foam yoga blocks ($10) and yoga mats featuring embossed guidelines ($28) that help beginners maintain proper alignment. Before you leave, check out the shop’s community board, which highlights local yoga studios and posts yogic events taking place in the neighborhood.
