H&M is on a mission to get everyone moving.
Today, the popular retailer launched its newest brand, H&M Move, a collection of activewear essentials that blend fashion and function. The brand says its new line is made to equip “Movers” with stylish essentials that keep them comfortable and confident while active.
To celebrate the new launch, the brand chose fitness icon Jane Fonda as the face of the campaign. Fonda changed the way people work with her now iconic home fitness tape “Jane Fonda’s Workout” so the role made perfect sense. And she showcased some of her classic moves with choreographer JaQuel Knight in a fun campaign video released yesterday.
Fonda said, “I’ve spent most of my life moving people, and I was naturally drawn to H&M Move’s mission to get the whole world moving on release. “To me, it’s not about playing sports or being the most athletic. It’s about giving your body the type of movement it needs to stay healthy so it can take care of you.”
The line doesn’t just cater to avid gym goers; The company says that “everyone on the planet” is considered “Moving” from even just moving.
“Removing barriers to sport is central to our purpose, starting with democratizing athletic wear,” Simon Brown, managing director of H&M Move, said in a broadcast. “We offer a wide range of motion apparel in a variety of categories that are stylish, functional and of incredible value for our customers. With our passion to move everyone and every body, together with Movers Jane Fonda and JaQuel Knight, we are truly inspired for the journey ahead.”
Launching this week, the first collection of the collection features a variety of essentials that can be worn for any movement, from functional tops and lightweight jackets to bras and products designed specifically for running. Items start at just $13, with the majority in the $20 to $35 range.
The line, which includes women’s, men’s and children’s pieces, is now available in 2,500 stores worldwide and on the H&M website. Read on to shop some of our favorite tracks from the new launch.
