Style: Garbe Luxe 

INTRODUCING 

Garbe Luxe Fall 2016
Garbe Luxe (Fall 2016 Campaign)

A STYLISH LINE of comfortable, functional athletic/lifestyle wear that I think you should know about if you don’t already since it’s been getting press in magazines such as Elle, Vogue, Redbook and Shape.  I’ve basically been living in my Garbe Luxe basic, seam and moto leggings and not just for going to the gym.  For evening you can find me in the Luca pant – a little too often.

Garbe Luxe is not only well made, the clothing fits beautifully (which let’s be honest, is our main objective) and looks good in all the right places.  I wear the short & long bra tops for yoga or running and in the summer I love the various tanks and t-shirts.  No doubt that they’re current and fashionable because they’re designed by my unfussy stylish friend Natalia MacLeod who is originally from Montreal and now makes her home in Los Angeles where everything is made.  As soon as I found out that she was creating an athletic wear line I wanted it – whatever she wears I want because I always admired her simple, elegant style.  She’s also exotically beautiful.
