The Bar Method Launches Design Collaboration With Indie Brand Soulgani – WWD

The Bar Method is floating on cloud nine. 

The popular exercise class, which incorporates ballet-style bars in each session a favorite among celebs like Jennifer Aniston, Zooey Deschanel, Kirsten Dunst and Denise Richards is launching its first design collaboration with Tampa Bay, Fla.-based brand Soulgani. The four-piece collection includes exclusive cloud prints on activewear pieces, such as leggings and a sports bra.

“The cloud print, that’s really reflective of this time during quarantine,” Stephanie Schon, president of The Bar Method, told WWD. “It’s a time of reflection, of maybe less ‘me’ time. It fits so well with where our customers are.” 

She added that an apparel partnership with Soulgani seemed fitting, not just because of the prints, but because the indie-label donates a portion of its proceeds to charitable causes, such as feeding the homeless, building homes in Peru or supporting art therapy for children, through its “Do Good, Be Good” program. Soulgani will donate 10 percent of net proceeds from The Bar Method collection to Feeding America.

These Best Stunning Nude Lip Colors For Dark Skin Tones

As a fashion editor, I always think of nude lip products in the context of a closet: they’re like the white t-shirt of your wardrobe–it’s not necessarily the most exciting thing in your collection, but it’s certainly the hardest working. For all it’s worth, choosing a nude shade isn’t exactly a walk in the park. Black women can probably understand this more than anyone: it’s taken decades for makeup companies to recognize the diverse range of deep and dark skin tones. Neutral shades marketed as “universal” nude lip colors generally skew ashy and wash out brown skin–so nope, that’s not doing us any favors. Thankfully the beauty industry is finally changing, but finding the perfect nude is still a science. 

I’m always asking fellow make up users for their personal recommendations, so I figured I’d get the scoop on the best neutrals out there. I asked 12 amazing Black women for their favorite nude lip products of all time, and let’s just say I’ve already added everything to my digital shopping cart. From peachy tones to chocolate brown hues (and of course more!), stay tuned for some incredible product suggestions.
