HEAVY METAL Featuring the same hand-designed pieces of metal-based jewelry that’s made this local line a must-have for fashionable women who like a bit of edge, Lotasi Jewels is quickly becoming a cult fave among men too. With standout designs like the barbed chain silver necklace ($650), silver skull ring ($250) and blinged-out black diamond dog tags (from $480), the unisex pieces have an urban yet decidedly upscale vibe. “Lotasi is sexy, rock ’n’ roll and unapologetically urban,” says designer Carla Maresca Eichler. “I want to appeal to all gender identities, so I diversified the line to have sexy and edgy pieces with a gender-neutral twist. The idea is to always feel sexy and confident in your own skin, regardless of your gender identity,” she says. Plus, you can feel good about looking good—a portion of all sales go toward Maasai secondary girl’s education in Kenya, along with other charities selected by Eichler and her Lotasi ambassadors.

FLEX APPEAL Melding fitness with food since opening in 2017, Bryn Mawr’s BodyX Training Studio has recently changed hands and is now in the well-toned arms of two beloved Main Line fitness pros, John Daley and Killian Riggs, who’ve worked with multiple sports teams, including the Flyers, Sixers and Villanova University Athletics. A functional strength and conditioning group training studio during the week, BodyX offers up specific workouts of the day, which, together, comprise a whole week’s program. And, on the weekends, you can tone up with super challenging boot camps and mobility classes. But while the workouts can make you buff, the associated culinary center can make sure you’re eating well, offering cooking classes such as the popular Taste of Tuscany. 22 N.

FACE VALUE Tribe, Chadds Ford’s experiential salon and style bar, has just expanded its studio and created Husk, a holistic-based destination for all things skincare. “At Husk, all of our holistic skin treatments are male-friendly,” says owner and creative director Andrew De Stefano. “Our skincare products are clean and plant-based, and smell earthy and masculine. Many have anti-inflammatory properties, which help calm daily shaving stresses while keeping skin looking younger and healthy.” In addition to offering treatments like Gua Sha, a traditional Chinese medicine technique known for its anti-aging benefits, and ultrasonic resurfacing, which uses pain-free technology to firm up skin, Husk therapists can put together a daily skincare regimen that’s not overly complicated. “As men age, taking a more tailored approach is essential,” says De Stefano. “Our skin sessions can help men understand their skin on a more comprehensive level.” 882 Baltimore Pike, Chadds Ford, 484.776.5139, huskxtribe.com
