LeSportsac and LIBERTY ART FABRICS Partner for Spring 2015

Liberty_Main

Obviously LeSportsac is all about prints, so it was only natural that we would partner with the recognized global leader in print design and textile innovation – Liberty Art Fabrics. Based in London’s bohemian Soho, the Liberty Design Studio creates more than 120 new prints and patterns annually with artists, writers, craftsmen, architects and illustrators. It was a match made across the pond and coming in-store for Spring 2015.

Since 1875, Liberty Art Fabrics has been famously known for its original hand drawn designs and world-class London department store that showcases its newest prints along with its luxury goods. LeSportsac got the rare opportunity to work with Liberty’s voluminous print history and peek though Liberty’s extensive library of distinct designs to choose two iconic Liberty florals, Margaret Annie and Pepper, to bring to life in 28 Classic LeSportsac styles. In addition, this collection also features special lightweight coated twill Liberty Art Fabric, in place of our traditional rip-stop nylon.

Exclusive to the collection is Liberty Combo – an eclectic mix of both Margaret Annie and Pepper prints color-blocked on select silhouettes. Styles range from small accessories to handbags, totes, and larger travel pieces. The collection will be available at LeSportsac Boutiques and online at LeSportsac.com in March 2015.

toki_LSS_Spring15_Ad

This Spring, LeSportsac partners once again with tokidoki and introduces a brand new print – Fioritura! Inspired by his admiration of the beauty of cherry blossoms and their seasonal rebirth, tokidoki Creative Director, Simone Legno, captures the flower’s vibrant pink colors with the new Fioritura print. Legno takes the colorful and charming characters of the tokidoki universe and awakens them from their winter hibernation – springing them to life among the cherry blossoms. Palette (the newest member of the tokidoki universe, created exclusively for the tokidoki for LeSportsac revival collection) is included in this fun pink floral adventure.

The Spring Collection will be available in 16 styles, including the Duet Purse – a color block mash-up of the continuing TD Black Quilted and the new Fioritura print. Even the adorable plush Palette Backpack gets the all-over print treatment this season!

Just in time for Valentines Day, LeSportsac will be releasing its love filled collaboration with Parisian designer Olympia Le-Tan this February. Known for her eponymous label’s one-of-kind hand embroidered book-cover clutches, Le-Tan’s collection with LeSportsac celebrates the literary tradition of love letters.

The playful and whimsical collection offers three original prints lovingly designed by Le-Tan. Blooming Hearts: a romantic sheet of postage stamps; Love Letters: an exploration on the elements of a love note – letters, books, stamps, kisses, & more; and Love Letters Blue: a softer version of Love Letters with a lovely blue background.

Available in LeSportsac’s heritage nylon, the assortment includes three soft sided Book Pouches inspired by Le-Tan’s signature Book Clutches, two specialty placement totes, and is available in LeSportsac’s best-selling Classic styles.

“Love is such a great theme. Hearts, doves, kisses, secret love notes. What’s not to love?,” confesses the designer.

Oh, and be sure to pick up the February issue of Teen Vogue featuring the Olympia Le-Tan for LeSportsac Collection.

LeSportsac Springs Forward with 2015 Classic Collection

Winter weather may be in full force outside, but we’re totally thinking Spring here at LeSportsac! To kick off our Spring 2015 Preview Week, we give you a sneak-peek of our upcoming Classic Collection – featuring three distinct stories for each month of this season. February focuses on hands-free modern living, March mesmerizes us with travel to destinations far and wide, and April is all about gift giving for Mother’s Day or any day!

Effortless. Easy. Streamlined – On the go style for the on the go life.

Supp1_2015

Sometimes you need to – have to – get up and go with so many things in tow! The Spring season kicks off early here at LeSportsac in February, and centers around the concept of hands-free modern living – taking all of your daily essentials along for the ride, while keeping your digits free for mobile-multitasking. This month we focus on the Small Edie Backpack, the Shellie Crossbody, and the Double Zip Belt Bag in prints ranging from Chic Noir and Pink Noir (a bold houndstooth available in black/white or pink/white) to Tennis Stripe (a sharp, sporty stripe that’s equally at home on the court or in the office).

MARCH:

March is all about destinations – whether you’re embarking on a global journey, or just headed across town for errands – we’ve got you covered. Highlighted this month are some of our most beloved Classic travel styles – including Weekenders, Packing Pouches, Small Crossbody Bags, and Backpacks – in an array of new prints, such as Blissful (a soft imaging of flora in fresh springtime colors), Pink Pyramid (a fun geometric played up in pretty pastel), and Spring Showers (raindrops in every color of the rainbow)!

Key items include the Deluxe Everyday Bag, the Classic Hobo, Totes, and a wide-range of gift-worthy Accessories – in a variety of prints to suit every kind of Mom: Euphoria (a bouquet of flowers against a black background), Blooming (a bold blending of animal print and graphic scribbles), Love Is Bold (a typographic tribute to true love), and Ace Stripe (a daring diagonal in black, blue and even an ombré on three special pieces).

Top 5 NYC Fitness Trends to Get to Your Best 2015 You!

FitnessAroundNYC
New year. New you. So you know you made a fitness resolution, time to work in that work out.

Based in New York City, LeSportsac is always on its way to the hottest (and sweatiest!) workouts. Check out five of our favorite fitness trends to bring out your best 2015 abs, along with the bag best suited to each work out.

Spartan Race

What is it: An outdoor obstacle course race spotted with hardcore physical challenges just in case you are not challenged enough Why we love it:  Being pushed to the max and still going is the ultimate self-esteem booster. You feel like a warrior—a Spartan warrior—and you like it.

FitnessAroundNYC_MediumWeekender

What to bring: A Medium Weekender. This warrior stuff isn’t pretty. Chances are your going to be COVERED in mud. You are going to need a shower immediately after. Room for a bath towel? Check.

Soul Cycle

What is it: A new take on indoor cycling with inspirational coaching, great music, and a full body workout (think hand weights and core work). You seriously pump up a jam.

Why we love it:  There a ton of locations so there is no excuse to miss a class and the music really just moves you to the most satisfying sweat fest.

FitnessAroundNYC_Voyager
What to bring:  A Voyager Backpack. Yup, you’re going to pack a water bottle in each side pocket and yes, you are going to need a towel or two to mop up that brow and those handle bars. You might even get crazy and buy your own shoes, so that main compartment? Perfect.

Jump Life

What is it:  Rebounding on a trampoline to do either dance based, Pilates and yoga, or weight centered workouts.

Why we love it: All the fun of jumping on a trampoline in your parents’ backyard is actually a work out? Count us in. The variety of classes offered has something for everyone.

FitnessAroundNYC_GymDuffle

What to bring: The Gym Duffle. The shoe pouch is perfect for transporting your shoes—sneakers are encouraged to get the most out of this cardio workout.  Though we are not sure how this bag is going to contain the fun you are going to have!

Physique 57

What is it: A stepped version of traditional barre ballet methods that adds a blend of cardio, strength training, and stretching to hit all of those small muscles along with the large ones that will be sore the next day.

Why we love it: It is a total body workout that burns those calories away and gives you an amazing stretch after wearing out each muscle group.

FitnessAroundNYC_GymTote
What to bring: The Gym Tote.  You are going to need the snap off clear zip pouch for that have-to-have shower right after. Try to hit the sauna beforehand to relax those poor sore muscles.

Afro-Brazilian Samba at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

What is it:  A warm-up that incorporates traditional elements of yoga, Pilates, and ballet leading up to a sweat inducing Brazilian dance class that incorporates the region’s Afro-Brazilian roots and the rhythms of Brazilian Samba.

Why we love it: Did we mention the live drumming?

FitnessAroundNYC_BasicBackpack
What to bring: The Basic Backpack. This barefoot class asks for leggings or yoga pants and the rhythm of your heart.

Happy workout all. Cheers to reaching your fitness goals in 2015!
