NEW YORK, Feb. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- YOGASMOGA®, the designer, manufacturer and retailer of Yoga inspired athletic apparel has announced that it has selected Selldorf Architect's 10 Bond Street as its first New York City retail location. The company further announced that Selldorf Architects will be designing the retail experience.
Terracotta-clad 10 Bond, at the corner of NoHo's Lafayette and Bond Street, is Selldorf's latest addition to the neighborhood's architectural excellence.

We expect to use their fabric technology and beautiful colors as the focal point of this unique double height experience." The lower level of the location is also expected to feature a yoga lounge for community events.
The opening of YOGASMOGA's first New York City store marks a continued commitment to expansion for the brand after 10 store openings in 2015.

The brand's versatility is a clear indication of its unique position as a rapidly emerging leader in the high-end athletic wear arena.
YOGASMOGA continues to forge a unique path by entering this neighborhood new to retail.
