Halle Berry has always been and will forever be that girl. From dynamic character roles and fierce fashion choices (let’s not forget her signature pixie cut) , she has lived her best life for the world to see and looks damn good while doing it. Throughout her career, no matter the project she undertakes, she has unapologetically taken charge over her own narrative all while staying true to herself. Halle Berry has the juice and for that reason, our community does not play when it comes to her.
In April 2020, the multi-hyphenate Queen continued to lead by example with the relaunch of her fitness platform rē•spin as a means to further empower her own health and wellness journey as well as those of women everywhere. “The pillars of rē•spin – connect, nourish, strengthen, awaken, give, and eternal—are the words I’d use to describe my path to empowerment. Living within those pillars makes me feel empowered and purposeful, like I’m living the best life I can,” Berry said. Her newest collaboration with Sweaty Betty is a lesson and testament to consistent reinvention and taking risks in order to live a full, holistic life.
Birthed in 1998, the UK-based brand Sweaty Betty has been in the athletic garment biz for over 20 years with the charge of making sweat and active lifestyles look cool. This collaboration titled The rē•spin Edit, marks the brand’s first US partnership while also being Berry’s first time partnering with a clothing brand in her entire career. The collection consists of 22 limited-edition pieces that aim to comfortably fit all lifestyles from high-performance movement to day-to-day activities. “Sweaty Betty is a brand that I have so much respect for. I love the philosophy and I love all the female energy. It’s very aligned with who we are over at rē•spin. For me, I like my activewear to be a cross between fit and fashion. When I’m working out, I like the way the fabrics are compressed—it makes you feel held in all the right places. At the same time, Sweaty Betty has a fashion appeal where you can throw on a garment, go out to lunch, run your errands throughout the day, and don’t have to go home and re-do your whole look. I think that’s very much how modern women are living right now.”
Although inspired by boxing and Japanese jiu-jitsu, what makes these pieces truly unique is that each is named after one of Berry’s iconic roles. If at one point in your life you’ve said “I want to be like Halle Berry,” now is your chance to get in formation.
