Did you know that Kevin Plank, founder of Under Armour, grew up in Kensington? He is the youngest of five brothers born to William and Jayne Plank. His father was a prominent real estate developer who passed away in 1993. A local project of his was the Al Marah subdivision off River Road, just off of exit 39 on the Beltway. His mother was the mayor of Kensington for 8 years, from 1974-1982. She went on to direct the Office of Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs at the United States Department of State under President Ronald Reagan, and was a real estate broker until the early 2000s.

Now Open: Psycho Bunny
New York based men’s fashion store Psycho Bunny, which specializes in “4,000 stitch bunny-embroidered polos” is now open. The clothing line currently has collaborations with Daddy Yankee, Justise Winslow, and Jay Versace. Psycho Bunny is located on the bottom level of the mall. From their website: “We could have done what everybody else was doing. But we didn’t. Instead we set out to make the perfect polo and the most luxurious tee you’d ever wear. And that’s exactly what we’ve done. Our Pima cotton is woven from longer, smoother fibres. This has a number of benefits, most important of which is that it gives the fabric an incredibly soft on-body feel. The longer fibres are more durable, too—less prone to warping and tearing, while retaining their colored dye considerably longer than traditional cotton.”
