ShopTalk: Ivivva Yogawear for Teens
OMG! Lululemon for the younger set has arrived in Carmel.
With a surge of “athleisure” stores pushing pieces that work for both the gym and beyond, it made sense for a shop aimed at sporty tweens to jog into town, too. An offshoot of Lululemon, Ivivva offers gear similar to its big sister’s, including several styles of yoga pants, shorts in a rainbow of hues, and zip-up jackets; sizes range from 4 to 14. Nifty details unite fashion with function: Zipper-pulls double as emergency hair ties; a leotard features wedgie-preventing silicone grips around the bum; and one stretchy headband is infused with threads of silver, whose antibacterial property is said to nix odor-causing germs. The store’s interior is reminiscent of a girl’s bedroom, thanks to a fuzzy black-and-white chevron rug, a string of gold lights illuminating an aqua wall, a pop-music soundtrack, and a bulletin board filled not with One Direction photos but with flyers for fitness and dance classes. Girls can put their new outfits to the test (and on Instagram, no doubt) during weekly Saturday Sweat classes. 404 W. Main St., Carmel, 317-569-0824
