Pure Barre’s 2016 Spring Collection features fresh pops of color, fun, branded graphics, intricate back detailing, and subtle textures. We can’t get enough of this collection and know you’ll love it, too! To get the inside scoop on the design, we met with Amy Tankersley, Vice President of Product & Retail Strategy at Pure Barre’s corporate headquarters.

This time of the year is about getting back in the studio, getting serious about your fitness and offering those great silhouettes. Fun, bright color for the spring season was definitely my inspiration behind the Pure Barre 2016 Spring Collection. We wanted to ensure that clients can mix and match the collection, so we brought in steel, a great shade of grey. Steel is really trending for spring, and acts as the perfect neutral to balance the pops of color. This season I also wanted to focus on texture and detail. For example, one of our tops has amazing intricate mesh back detail, which is unexpected and fun!
Pure Barre: What can we expect to see this spring from Pure Barre?
This spring in your studio you will see bright and neutral tights in several fits.
We are bringing back our best-selling full length Gemini tight, that you can wear three different ways – high, mid, or low rise. The tight is available in a bright violet color as well as in black. Our clients asked us to bring this tight back – and I’m excited to say that we have! We also add more novelty to the tights this season. Our Hayden tight has subtle color blocking and a hidden waistband pocket. If you love the Erid tight, you will love the Hayden! The Nessa tight is another style that has been requested, and we are bringing back this great style in a neutral steel color with fun, two- color scripted branding. The colors in the Nessa tight can easily work with a neutral top as well. Lastly we have the popular Erid tight, which is both a tight and a legwarmer all in one!
As the experts in barre, we make sure to always design our apparel to complement our technique. This collection includes a number of performance-based tops that are perfect for both Pure Barre and Platform classes.
Our Dinah tank is a supplex, fitted racerback tank. It also includes an inside shelf bra for extra support! It is also longer for backside coverage. The Faye tank appeals to a very broad audience. This is a loose silhouette with an amazingly beautiful open back. The gorgeous, intricate mesh detailing is my favorite feature of this tank. You can wear your own sports bra with it, and it has a loose silhouette. Our Alize tank is a great style to wear to and from the studio. The long, deep arm holes let you show off your cute sports bra, and its longer backside coverage is always a plus in the Pure Barre world!
We do feature a layering piece in this collection as well. The Kiernan cardigan is a lightweight French terry wrap pullover, with a twisted front body and extended rib sleeve cuffs. It’s fun and comfortable to wear after class and around town.
Pure Barre: What are you most proud of in this collection?
I am most proud of the fact that feedback from the Pure Barre clients helped inspire many pieces in this collection. We kept those tried and true styles like the Erid and Gemini tights, and we responded to client’s requests for longer tank silhouettes. We also listened to client feedback on pricing and are excited to offer a variety of price options in studio!
You can only find this collection in your local Pure Barre studio. No one else sells Pure Barre branded apparel, and we don’t sell to anyone but Pure Barre clients, so you can be sure the collection was designed with you in mind. All of these pieces are customized to the Pure Barre experience, and that’s what’s so cool about a clothing line of our own. Our clients have the uniqueness and exclusivity, and that is so fun to design for.
