Under Armour athlete and principal ballet dancer Misty Copeland launched the fall collection Monday of her signature apparel line for the Baltimore-based sports apparel brand.

The apparel maker introduced the Misty Copeland Signature Collection earlier this year.

“This collection is about being able to mix it up and not having just one look,” Copeland said in an announcement. “We have so many sides to us, and it’s nice to have that balance and not to be told you have to be one way or another.”

As a co-designer, Copeland wanted pieces that could go from yoga class to the office, “something that you can wear with sneakers or pumps, dressed up or down,” Under Armour said.

The new offerings, a series of structured pieces designed to hug the body in a flattering way, incorporate the brand’s “Breathelux” fabric for a sweat-wicking and lightweight material.

The fall line includes a crop top and legging set, a bomber jacket, a dress, sweaters and tank tops, with prices ranging from $50 to $180, available at Under Armour Brand Houses, at some Macy’s and online.
