LONDON, Oct. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Sweaty Betty, global activewear and lifestyle brand, is thrilled to announce its second collaboration with Hollywood icon Halle Berry and her wellness brand, rē•spin. The fall drop of The rē•spin Edit focuses on effortless layers in time for the cozy season, with an understated color palette of soft greens, warm creams and deep, earthy blacks inspired by Halle’s love of nature. The limited-edition, 24-piece collection closely reflects Halle’s personal style, with the flattering fits and innovative details with which Sweaty Betty is synonymous.
Sweaty Betty has been on a mission to empower women through fitness and beyond for over 20 years. The brand found an undeniable synergy with Halle Berry and her brand, rē•spin, the inclusive community and resourceful destination for health and wellness content that she launched in 2020.
“I loved designing my first collection with the Sweaty Betty team and my Style Director at rē•spin Lindsey Flores and I’m so excited to be launching a second drop,” says Halle Berry. “I’m so proud of this collection – it’s my ideal fall wardrobe. It’s effortless, adaptable, and complements my lifestyle perfectly.”
Pieces from the first collaboration in May sold out within 24 hours. This follow up naturally builds on the high-performance, technical wardrobe for active women with sophisticated, seasonal pieces in relaxed fits and natural fabrics. The brand’s bum-sculpting Power Leggings, so popular a pair is sold every 60 seconds, feature in a reflective HBSB print, playing on Sweaty Betty and Halle Berry’s initials and named “Jinx” after Halle’s character in Die Another Day. This collection also debuts Sweaty Betty’s newest franchise, Super Soft – an innovative fabric range ideal for multi-sport workouts that is not only sweat-wicking, bum sculpting, and high compression, but with a soft touch, a super flattering fit and leg-lengthening seamlines. This collection showcases the best of Sweaty Betty’s lounge and layering pieces; waffle bodysuits and hoodies are paired with relaxed joggers, statement coats made from recycled down come in relaxed, ready-to-layer fits, and voluminous, soft wool scarves and luxe cashmere socks offer stylish finishing touches to complete the look.
Adds Halle, “I’ve been a longtime fan of Sweaty Betty’s Power Leggings and wore them to train for my new movie and directorial debut, Bruised. I train five times a week and like to mix up my workout wardrobe, so I’m honored to launch Sweaty Betty’s new Super Soft range in my collection. We named it after Athena, the goddess of war, as that’s how they will make you feel – like a warrior. I can’t wait to send everyone I know the beautiful accessories – cashmere socks, soft beanies, and oversized scarves – this Holiday season.”
“Expanding on our first sold out collab with Halle has been the dream,” remarks Jemma Cassidy, Sweaty Betty’s Chief Product Officer. “We’re constantly pushing ourselves to test the boundaries of activewear innovation and I’m thrilled we’re partnering with her to launch our new Super Soft franchise in this collection. We’ve sourced the best technical fabric in the world, fitted the pieces in-house and strategically placed seams to give a leg-lengthening effect and sculpt the body. Working together for a second time has really allowed us to explore Halle’s vision; building on the lounge and layering pieces she wears and loves in addition to technical activewear, to complete a full wardrobe for active women that reflects her strength and rebellious spirit.”
The limited edition collection is available in sizes XXS to XXL, with prices ranging from $14-$348.
Inspired by Halle’s love of nature and the tension between strength and softness seen in the collection, Halle fronts the campaign shot in the iconic Topanga Valley by frequent collaborators photographer Cliff Watts, stylist Lindsay Flores, and videographer Mark Roe. The collection will be available from October 22nd on sweatybetty.com and through select retail partners worldwide. For more information, please visit sweatybetty.com.
