Let’s be honest, generally when a musician, actor, or athlete comes out with any type of fashion line, it’s lackluster. With the exception of a handful of truly talented celebs–Gwen Stefani, Victoria Beckham, The Olsen twins–these people don’t have a real hand in the creation of the sub par clothing and accessories lines they put their names on. And with the exception of those beloved few, celebs often lack a discerning eye when it comes to creating chic clothing.
Olympic Gold Medalist and NY Times Best Selling Author Kristi Yamaguchi joins the ranks of the favored few with her women’s active wear, Tsu-ya. The 42-year-old former figure skater launched the line in October 2012, offering modern, sophisticated athletic wear for women. For the fashion savvy lady who does her morning yoga, then runs errands around the busy city or town, these stylish pieces are a must-have. This spring marks the launch of the third collection in the line. Including capris, sports bras, camis, and even skirts, this collection incorporates trendy accents and details seen on the recent runways.
Pieces start at $49, and a portion of the proceeds from all Tsu.ya sales goes to Kristi Yamaguchi’s Always Dream Foundation, which utilizes early childhood literacy programs to inspire under-served children to strive for their dreams.
