Not only is Misty Copeland one of the best ballerinas in the world, she’s a champion for all women. Being that she spends multiple hours a day training, Misty knows the importance of functional workout gear. Keeping performance and style in mind, Misty and Under Armour recently released her third workout collection.
In a press release, Under Armour said the collection is “for the many other uncontainable women out there — those who wear many hats, who stand out in a room and who make their presence known.” The collection is all about style and performance, and is made from a performance-based fabric, the designers explained at a brunch ahead of the launch.
When designing the collection, Misty and the Under Armour team focused on creating seamless, comfortable, supportive, and versatile pieces. “It’s extremely important for me. As a ballerina, if I do dance in these clothes in rehearsal, if I’m being partnered, I can’t have anything that’s going to get in the way,” she said. Misty loves all the pieces, but shared that one of her favorites are the high-waisted leggings. “It’s just become a staple in the line now. It’s the base we work from,” she said.
Check out the images from her collection ahead. All 13 pieces are available for purchase on the Under Armour website and at select Macy’s stores.
