As proven by the rebirth of LA's megamalls and their fashionable fitness scenes, our city will soon become an even bigger sweaty shopping playground before 2015 ends. Among the options is The Village at Westfield Topanga, which is nabbing Kate Hudson-helmed Fabletics's first SoCal boutique this fall.
WWD reveals the shop is slated open Thursday, September 17th and will be part of the online athleticwear brand's major brick-and-mortar expansion. In addition to allowing first-time and existing customers to try on its men's and women's workout apparel, the space will offer in-store pickup for online purchases and mobile checkout.
On top of scoring Fabletics's first LA store, the Valley lifestyle center will also include Yoga Works, 24 Hour Fitness, and Athleta. The opening follows Fabletics parent company JustFab's move to bring its affordable footwear and accessories to shoppers with its first LA flagship, which debuted two years ago at the Glendale Galleria.
