7 Things The Revelle HQ Is Buzzing About This Month [September]

Old Navy’s new inclusivity campaign, a line of sneakers from Cardi B, former models speaking out against sexual harassment, Beyoncé’s new favorite pair of jeans, and more.

01 Have you seen Old Navy’s new BODEQUALITY campaign?

It’s totally redefining what plus-size shopping looks like and we are SO here for it. Here’s the deal: as of August 20, every clothing item will be available in sizes 0-28 in stores, and 0-30 online. The plus-size collection will be completely integrated into the existing women’s section, making Old Navy the first business of this scale to *actually* guarantee size-inclusivity across its 1200 stores in the U.S. and abroad. 

02 Snag Cardi Bi’s Reebok sneaks while you can!

Inspired by New York City, Cardi B’s capsule collection of sneakers — called “Let Me Be…In My World” — comes in enviable monochrome hues, including white, olive, dusty rose, and cranberry. “If it sells out, don’t say I didn’t warn you b*tch!” Noted, Cardi B. Noted. 

03All eyes on Paris as former models speak out against sexual harassment committed by Gérald Marie, their former agency boss

Among the big names taking a stand? Carla Bruni (one of the most iconic models of the 1990s and former first lady of France), Paulina Porizkova (who, at just 18, became the first woman from Central Europe to grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue), and Karen Elson (English supermodel, singer, and songwriter).  

“As models, we weren’t paid for our talents,” explained Porizkova. “We were renting our body and face. Your body wasn’t your own.” The women testifying will “relive some painful memories to stand up for a better industry and the women who haven’t been able to come forward.” 

04 For Zendaya, feminism is incomplete if it doesn’t include trans women

Because at its core, feminism should include “women that look like you, women who don’t look like you, women whose experiences are different than you,” explained the 25-year-old actress and singer. “That means black women, that means trans women, that means all women.” 

05 It’s official — per Beyoncé, at least — flared jeans are BACK

After Queen Bey posted a photo of herself rocking a pair of throwback, full-length, super high-waist flares in dark indigo wash, we dropped everything and *immediately* went to buy a pair for ourselves (or fish one out of the depths of our closet). What can we say? Beyoncé is a POWERHOUSE…and we bow down.

06 Prabal Gurung’s NYFW show brilliantly explored the theme of femininity

With a diverse, spring-summer collection of sporty dresses, loose trousers, and elegant evening wear, Gurung challenged viewers to question who gets to be a woman and what it means to be “feminine.” No wonder Kathy Hochul — New York’s first female governor — chose this show to attend. 

“Who gets to be all of it or none of it? Who gets to be a girl?” he explained. “In today’s world, the maternal matriarchal energy is much more needed than ever.” 

07 Attention all Peloton fans! The cult-favorite brand just launched their own private-label apparel brand

And the best part? The 80-piece collection was informed entirely by feedback by instructors and members. 

“On the Peloton Facebook page, members are constantly writing comments, criticisms and feedback,” explains Jill Foley, VP of Apparel. “The instructors will tell me, ‘Jill, this felt funny, this rolls over when I lean over or this is not giving me enough coverage.’ We slowly fine-tuned each style and scoured the Earth to find the best fabrics that fit our members’ needs.” 

Another incentive behind the launch — and one that DEFINITELY resonates with us here at Revelle — was the frustrating inconsistencies in sizing between brands, with a medium in something like Spiritual Gangster fitting differently than a medium in Beyond Yoga. What customers wanted, Foley realized, was a private-label product line from Peloton. And now it’s here.
