Halle Berry Teamed Up With Sweaty Betty To Reimagine the Cult-Fave Leggings That Sell Every 90 Seconds
The British activewear brand just announced a partnership with the Academy Award Winner and her wellness brand, Re/Spin, and you bet we’re already drooling over the entire collection. Inspired by boxing and Japanese jiu-jitsu, the limited edition collab features 22 technical and lifestyle pieces, including sleek sports bras, playful jumpsuits, and classic midi dresses.
Berry launched Re/Spin last year as a women’s health and wellness platform. Now, the brand's new athleisure line blends Re/Spin’s core ethos with Sweaty Betty’s mission of empowering women through fitness.
“Sweaty Betty was the first brand that came to mind—they know how to make technical activewear that not only looks great, but also truly performs,” said Berry, in a release. “I’ve worn the Power Legging for years, so it was an amazing experience to design my own version, named after one of my most iconic roles: Storm. I worked closely with Sweaty Betty's design team, entirely over Zoom, to make my vision of this collection come to life. I'm so proud of what we've created. It's truly a reflection of my lifestyle and features pieces that can take you from studio to street.”
"Studio to street" is a great way to put it. The entire collection comes in a modern, minimalist color palette of stormy grays, earthy creams, and deep blacks, making each piece easy to dress up or down depending on what you're feeling. It truly is "a seamless combination of technical performance and feminine expressive style."

Our 5 favorite pieces from the new Sweaty Betty x Halle Berry collab
Hellooo, breathability. Inspired by boxing training shorts, the Leticia Training Shorts are lightweight and durable, making them the perfect bottoms for sweaty days in the gym or out on the trail. If you’re not sure about the bagginess, don’t worry—each pair is lined with an ultralight lining to keep everything, well, in place. And did we mention there are pockets?!
While its length probably isn’t as gym-friendly as the beloved Outdoor Voices Exercise Dress, this midi is sure to be a summer staple. The fabric is slinky, so it looks like a chic LBD, not activewear. But it’s made entirely of stretchy, sweat-wicking nylon, so you’re sure to be comfy all day (or night) long. Dress it up with some sandals or toss on some white sneakers and a denim jacket for a cute, casual look.
Whether it’s to a spin class, relaxing yoga flow, or drinks with friends, this soft jersey tank can go just about anywhere. Don’t let its simplicity fool you—the subtle piping across the chest and back give it juuust the right amount of detail without overdoing it. The black is great, but we love the bright Lily White that’s just in time for Memorial Day.
Pandemic or not, we’re not leaving our love for sweatpants in 2020—and these cotton joggers take cozy to the next level. They have that standard jogger feel with tapered legs with an elastic waistband and matching cuffs. But each pair has a square, black logo patch stitched on the leg that stands-out against the cream coloring, adding a little extra ‘oomph to an otherwise minimalist look.
There’s nothing like a little black bike short, and The Jinx Power 9” Bike Shorts adds a spin on the classic look with a steel gray, allover Sweaty Betty logo print. TBH, I’m normally not a fan of something overly logo’d, but this pattern passes as a tribal print, making them that much trendier. Pair them with an oversized crew for a Princess Diana vibe, or style it with its matching Jinx Power Workout Tank ($78).
Just like Berry’s iconic character in X-Men, these leggings are totally badass. With shiny, black side panels that stand-out against the matte fabric, they’re an edgy twist on Sweaty Betty’s signature Power Legging. Still, they’re just as technical as they’ve ever been. Expect a super flexible-but-supportive feel plus a high-waisted silhouette that’ll provide ample support and coverage throughout any workout.
