Misty Copeland’s Third Collaboration with Under Armour

If you have ever seen Misty Copeland dance, you are not only impressed with her technical brilliance and purity, but also the beauty and elegance of her movement quality. Very few ballerinas have been as regal as Misty Copeland in “Swan Lake,” and the accuracy and pyrotechnical aplomb of her Kitri in the ‘Vision Scene’ of “Don Quixote” renders the majesty of style in the tradition of Grand Imperial ballet.

If you are not familiar with Misty Copeland’s artistry and skill in classical and neo-classical ballet repertoire, performed on the great stages of world, then perhaps, you are familiar with her campaigns for Under Armour. In this third Under Armour campaign, Misty and Under Armour have developed the third iteration of the Misty Copeland Signature Collection,” 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.”

As detailed in Under Armour’s press release, the new line features a bold color palette, fresh cuts and flattering designs for an effortlessly stylish look. Like her previous two product launches, this collection is designed with versatility in mind, giving athletes gear to train in that also flawlessly transitions to the next part of their day. Each piece from the collection was designed with a 360-degree approach to dressing. In this spring 2019 collection, Misty Copeland wanted the pieces to be fierce and powerful, but also feminine with elegant embroidery, soft tailoring and contour wrapping.

“My favorite thing about this line in particular is the mixing of shapes—the high-waisted leggings and these amazing inserts—that I feel make you look lean and long, but also combine different bits of structure that add a more street-style flare,” explained Copeland. “It’s extremely important for me as a ballerina, if I dance in these clothes in rehearsal, if I’m being partnered, I can’t have anything that gets in the way.”The collection includes crop tops, sweaters, legging sets, embroidered tanks, tees, joggers, and skirts that range in price from $40 to $140 USD. The collection—13 pieces—will be available for purchase at select Macy’s, UA.com and at Under Armour Brand Houses.
