Two weeks from today, on February 20th, ivivva athletica will open its doors at Westfield Topanga in Canoga Park. This lululemon for young girls, ages 4-14, will be located on the first floor, downstairs from The Cheesecake Factory.
Why refer to it as the lululemon for young girls? Well for starters it is owned by the same parent company, lululemon athletica inc. Just like lululemon, the ivivva clothing line has thoughtful details like secret pockets, ponytail hoods or gripper elastics to keep your bodysuit in place. Another unique design detail is hiding the clothing tags in a little pocket. My daughter suffered from eczema when she was a toddler & the tags on her clothes felt scratchy to her. Although she has long grown out of it (thank goodness) there might be some young tweens whose skin gets irritated by these tags while playing sports.
Do you have a daughter that tends to misplace her clothes? Well check out this label that is already pre-ironed onto the pants. How clever!
As someone who owns a pair of lululemon pants, I’ve seen the quality first-hand & I’m pleased to say that ivivva has the same care to details & quality as it’s adult version.
If you’re into fitness apparel, then you know how obsessed women are for those lululemon pants that are made with the company’s signature Luon® fabric, which is 86% nylon & 14% Lycra. So if your daughter is active in dance, soccer or any other sport, then take note that these ivivva pants are made with the same Luon® material, making them cottony soft & breathable. Plus they contain a four-way stretch & are moisture-wicking!
But enough of the technical stuff, how does it look? The designs are super cute! Check out this outfit that my kiddo wore on a recent family outing. The leggings fit perfectly & she loves the jacket design containing her two favorite colors (pink & purple) plus the matching headband.
The brand is more than just clothing but it is also a lifestyle brand centered around confidence & celebrating real movement! If you look at ivivva’s Twitter feed, you’ll see that it’s all about empowering sports-minded girls. As a mother of a young girl, I’m all for girl power. I don’t know about you, but I really enjoyed the #LikeAGirl television spot that ran during the recent Super Bowl. Yes, it’s a tagline for a completely different product, but any brand that inspires young girls to reach for their goals is one that I can definitely get behind.
The store plans to have weekly workout classes (yoga, dance, etc.) for girls. I can’t wait for the store to open on February 20th & take my daughter to some of these community classes! For more info, check out the ivivva website.
