Wow, stylish, functional, not crazily-priced workout clothes! The idea is inventive these days, and Brentwood denizens get easy access to it with Splits 59, a new boutique home to the "high-performance women's sports line with fashion flair," as the LA Times refers to it. Per the paper, the creators behind the line and boutique have an impressive background in the biz, "Founded by Jonathan Schwartz (son of Calvin Klein co-founder Barry Schwartz) and Keith Petersen, who was mentored by Dolce & Gabbana's Gabriella Forte." The collection—tanks, bras, running, yoga and cycling gear—is not Target-cheap, but runs from $28 for a bra to $145 for a post-workout dress, which is cute enough to wear whenever, even with no workout involved. The Splits 59 site also offers ecommerce.
