new website daub design NEW WEBSITE ALERT: DAUB & DESIGNI’m all over these tie-dye leggings.

The latest site fitness fashion website worth bookmarking is Daub & Design. The airy, seamless design reflects the pared-down nature of the collection: only four different pieces are available: tie-dye leggings, seamless undies and scarves available in cotton or crepe de chine. Vancouver-based designer Lexi Soukoreff hand-dyes every single piece, so there are variations in print and colour. Just think—you’ll be bespoke throughout your Bikram class. And $89 for a pair of handmade, flattering, Canadian leggings sounds kind of amazing to me. Think indie Lululemon meets artisanal hippie.

Do prettier work out pieces inspire you to sweat more?

“Being an entrepreneur and artist, you cannot be afraid to take risks,” says Zoë Pawlak. Perhaps that’s why the Vancouver-based painter and illustrator who specializes in figurative and landscape canvases—and describes her personal style as “eclectic and practical”—recently embarked on her first product collaboration: A series of five wool rugs based on her painting Over Oceans.

Take a look at the rugs and what Zoë Pawlak has to say about the collab…
