It might be the off-season, but Simone Biles is staying busy as ever, leaping back from the gym to the design studio. Releasing on July 26, the Olympic gymnast is continuing her partnership with Athleta Girl with a new 15-piece activewear and back-to-school collection.

The new Athleta Girl X Simone Biles collection is perfectly timed for back-to-school season and, of course, includes everything you could need to hit the hallways in style come late August and September — from backpacks to hoodies, shorts, tank tops, sports bras, pants, and more in sizes ranging from XS/6–XXL/16.

At first, it might look like your ordinary activewear line, but incorporated throughout the designs are Simone’s personal mantras, the touching messages she reminds herself of every day to stay strong. “They’re gentle reminders that help me tap into my inner confidence,” Simone tells Teen Vogue over Zoom.

Though the reminders might change day by day, there are two ones prominent in the collection — “Courage Is Your Superpower” and “Use Your Voice” — which Simone intently chose to give wearers that extra boost of confidence even if they don’t do self-affirmations. “When you’re wearing something that is comfortable and you’re confident in it, you can see it exude through their personality,” she says. 

The collection is intended for girls ages 6 to 14, a prime demographic of Simone’s fan base that she continues to inspire not only through sports but also through various forms of achievements and activism. Most recently, by becoming the youngest recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, one of the nation’s highest honors.

“[That moment] truly shows that you can do anything you put your mind to,” Simone says, reflecting on her time at the White House. “There’s strength and courage in that. It’s something I did not expect, so it felt very surreal and humbling to be included amongst people I admire across many different fields.”
