Our latest activewear drop is here, and it's giving us all the motivation to stick to our new year resolutions. With fashionable workout pieces made in fabrics that perform as good as they feel. Years in the making, our design team crafted this collection to give you even more sun-kissed essentials for your everyday life. We caught up with our Active designer, Brianna, to learn more about the collection and get the inside scoop on what inspired it.
What inspired the colors and silhouettes of the pieces?
The silhouettes were designed with play in mind, flirty skirts and onsies that can be thrown on. The colors were inspired by Southern California’s chilly but mild winter climate.
Which pieces are you excited about and why?
The Bobby Bra and Riggs Skort were specifically designed for playing pickleball or tennis and named after the pickleball courts I play at. The Patterson Dress is our performance active dress that fits like a glove and can be put to the test by your work out, or not. The Rally Dress is oh so soft and comfortable, I plan to wear this to pickleball as well as the farmers market.
How would you style your favorite piece from the collection?
Here at HQ we love to mix our activewear back to the rest of our closet. I will be wearing the Recreation Jumpsuit with a neutral shacket and my heathered cream Birkenstock clogs.
Can you describe your design process and what goes into it when designing active?
We start with an activity that inspires us to get active, then we gather tears of details and start sketching! After sketching we play around with color swatches to find a palette that feels balanced and find the right colors for each look. The rest is history 😊
