Hilary Swank’s Activewear Line Will Take You From Yoga To Cocktail Hour

Actress Hilary Swank is launching a line of luxurious activewear, and she’s calling the new brand Mission Statement (the name gives you an instant boost of motivation, right?). “The underlying purpose in creating the line was to pay homage to women who have extraordinary ideas, ambition, focus, and a love for living a full, authentic life,” Swank tells SELF in an email. “With that in mind, I wanted to design versatile clothing for women who live by this same mantra every day.”

The clothing collection is the perfect blend of fashion and function with quality fabrics. For example, there’s a swanky (sorry we couldn’t resist) jacket that’s part leather moto, part hoodie. The lineup also includes a laser-cut tennis dress that could double as cocktail attire. Mission Statement is definitely a line for women who are accustomed to doing double duty, jetting from the gym to the conference room or hopping from a yoga class to a networking event. Alongside these high-fashion pieces are some of the classic fitness wardrobe essentials like sports bras and windbreakers. “Women are busier than ever,” says Swank. “They want the ability to go from exercising straight into their day, whether it’s business meetings, dropping the kids at school, or running errands.”

And Swank has got a packed schedule herself. But between filming movies and designing a clothing line, the Academy Award winner still finds time to work out and practice mindfulness. “I like to mix it up to keep it interesting. Some days I’ll find myself playing tennis or going for hikes, while other days I am doing weights in the gym,” says Swank. “I also love to find quiet time every day where I sit with myself and take that time to recenter and focus. One of my favorite ‘quiet’ moments of the day is taking time at dusk to be with my dogs and enjoy the sunset.”
