When it comes to active wear, more often than not eco-friendly isn’t used in the same sentence. But there are a number of stylish brands bucking this trend. Case in point: BELOFORTE is the new contemporary active wear brand that aims to do good for your body (yes, they’re sweat friendly and super flattering) as well as the community through sustainable practices.
Inspired by high-fashion runway looks, BELOFORTE strives to be more than just a brand that sells activewear. Derived from the Portuguese words “Belo”, meaning beauty, and “forte”, meaning strength, BELOFORTE seeks to combine fashion-forward designs with high performance functionality in all of their garments.
Made from recovered recyclables and cut and sewn in California by artisan sewers, BELOFORTE is devoted to manufacturing clothing that does not contribute to the industrial pollution damaging our atmosphere. And even though the brand has focused on being sustainable and eco-friendly, it doesn’t mean that style has been compromised. Expect chic (and a little bit edgy) monochromatic crops, tops and tights with unique laser-cut, mesh and zipper details that’ll take you from a sweaty spin class to coffee dates.
“BELOFORTE is the collaboration of founders Whitney Quaresma and Kevin Dorey. Both shared a vision in building a brand founded on their passion to creatively inspire people through a product while affecting positive change in their local and global community through sustainable practices. The BELOFORTE line is their assertion on activewear for the modern woman.”
Not to mention, BELOFORTE has received the chic tick of approval from Snowboarding Olympic Gold Medalist Hannah Teter, fitness influencers Remi Ishizuka and Jera Foster-Fell as well as actress, Sophia Bush.
Stylish, sweat and eco-friendly – it’s a win, win all round.
