Now available is one of the most eagerly awaited and very buzzed about new activewear lines, Ivy Park — the joint venture created by entertainment superstar Beyonce and retail magnate Sir Philip Green. This graphic wow of a collection features a full range and wide assortment of leggings, tanks, sport bras, sweatshirts, tees, and more, designed not just for style but for performance. If these pieces can keep up with Beyonce’s moves, that’s a testament in itself!

A sophisticated palette of black, white, grays, and neutrals are offset with the addition cobalt in the mix. Compression fits, seemless support, and wicking fabrics accentuate the comfort and performance focus of the line. The number 4 plays throughout — the date of Beyoncé, her mother, and her husband’s Jay-Z’s birthdays, as well as the couple’s wedding anniversary.

Opening today in West Hollywood, CA. is the first Martone Cycling Co. pop-up shop. Along with the chic and playful Martone bicycles, the shop will be carrying a myriad of athletic and “athleisure” brands, plus sporty accessories, curated by us here at Style of Sport! Some of our favorite brands like Onzie, Tracksmith, Alala, MPG Sport, and Vuarnet (the iconic sunglass brand recently relaunched in the US!) will be featured in the store.
Designed in New York City, the brightly colored monochromatic Martone bicycles are as rugged as they are fashionable. Composed of steel alloy and aluminum, with puncture resistant tires to take on city streets, the bikes weigh in at a mere 26 pounds with the basket. The brand’s main differentiator in functionality is the “MCC Duomatic,” an innovative SRAM 2 speed gear system that shifts gears automatically depending on slope and speed. MCC is the only bicycle brand to employ this technology in the United States, letting the rider glide smoothly, and of course, in style!
Located at 8366 ½ W. 3rd Street (between Orlando and Sweetzer) in West Hollywood, the pop-up will be open throughout the month of April. Produced in conjunction with Liberty Fairs, the shop will offer Angelenos a unique peek into the world of Martone Cycling, with bicycles, activewear and accessories made for the LA lifestyle.

CENTER COLUMN: ASSOS ZEGHO AMPLIFY SUNGLASSES $439. Looking as much like fashion opticals as sport shades, these flashy bike sunglasses are as equally dedicated to technical performance as style. Yes, they have a hefty price tag, but Assos partnered with Carl Zeiss Optics to create the ultimate lightweight, durable, one-piece lens with zero optical distortion — even at its curviest parts. The Zeiss lens spans and contours the face for a full 180 degree field of view, and a unique tinting gradient called “Tunnel Vision” provides optimal vision in changing light conditions. The Zeiss coating that hardens the lens is also anti-smudge, anti-static, hydrophobic and oleophobic for the ultimate protection on the road. ADIDAS PUREBOOST X WOMENS RUNNING SHOES $120. The newest entry into the very popular BOOST category from Adidas is the PureBOOST X that features the first ever floating arch. While most running shoes are adaptations of male shoes, the contours of the female foot inspired its design, and the high performance PureBOOST X was created purely with the female athlete in mind. The adaptive stretch mesh wraps underneath the midfoot to hug and support the foot throughout the run, while the BOOST midsole unleashes powerful energy and responsive cushioning. TANGRAM FACTORY SMART ROPE $79.98. Jumping rope goes high tech with this LED embedded jump rope that displays your fitness data midair while you work out. 2 sets of ball bearings in each handle create a smooth movement, while magnetic sensors track jumps.
