My son. My talented son. My son Sam is launching my clothing collaborations series. He has shared some of his artwork for us to move in!
One thing you all may not know about me is that for as long as I have been working on this method, I have had to pull inspiration from many different muses. These various people and places that inspire me assist me with the very difficult task at hand: creating a symphony of movements that work together to balance the masterpiece that is your body. My work requires a certain creative pull which I rather enjoy, but it also requires an even more intense intellectual pull.
I have to be honest here, while I appreciate all aspirations and the recognition of exercise fashion (that we actually care about getting suited up for the game that is our workout), I don’t see a lot of workout clothes that I personally love. Since I was first celebrated for my take on workout apparel—a focus on fashion rather than athletics, i.e. cutting leggings that were never supposed to be sweat in simply because I was attracted to the print—I have yet to really sink my teeth into creating a real collection. This is partly because I strongly believe in focus. I am supposed to focus on designing harmonious movements for your bodies, not necessarily designing what they move in (although I do have a lot of well-earned opinions about that).
I had the opportunity to launch a “collection” earlier this year, but instead opted for a series of collaborations. This way, I could celebrate artists I found myself attracted to and join forces to create fashion instead of taking the deep dive on my own. For each one, I thought about who I personally wanted to do what with and, lucky me, many were in. Luckiest me, my son was in, and he is launching my first series today with 6 incredible pieces he designed for me.
