Mission Statement: Hilary Swank’s New Luxury Clothing Line Merges High Fashion With High Performance

When Academy Award-winning actress and producer, Hilary Swank, couldn’t find clothing that met all of her lifestyle needs she designed it herself. After years of perfecting the concept, in the fall of 2016 she launched her start-up Mission Statement, a new crossover women’s clothing category that goes far beyond athleisure and merges high-fashion design with high-performance textiles.

Swank’s superbly constructed collection offers an array of jackets, dresses, sports bras, and pants with a variety of layer-able separates made from sumptuous technical fabrics that are eco-friendly like washable cashmere and leather.

Swank’s outerwear is exceptional both in terms of style and materials as well as versatility and construction. The sports bras look and fit more like a well-constructed bustier rather then the bust crushing alternatives. Her thoughtfully designed tennis-inspired dresses easily transition from the courts to an elegant dinner with a change of shoes and fit like couture. Her leggings (just like her sports bras) support you in all of the right places without constricting blood flow or cutting into you when worn for prolonged periods.Read More

Hilary Swank Returns to the Big Screen

After a three-year break from acting, Hilary Swank is back on the big screen. Her new role as an FBI investigator in the comic action film “Logan Lucky,” directed by Steven Soderbergh, is her first appearance in a movie since she went on hiatus to take full-time care of her father, who was diagnosed with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

“When you walk away from that one thing that defines you, you say…‘I’m so much more than that,’ ” she says. “I’m a woman. I’m a daughter. I have other ambitions.”

A two-time Academy Award winner for her performances as a transgender teen in “Boys Don’t Cry” (1999) and a boxer in “Million Dollar Baby” (2004), Ms. Swank, 43, plays a dogged detective in her latest. In the film, she tries to track down the thieves who took cash from a Nascar raceway.

She is known for portraying tough characters. “I like strong people, people who really stand for something and have backbones,” she says. “I’m drawn to people who are underdogs, who have to be strong, maybe because of my own circumstances.”

Ms. Swank grew up in a trailer park in Bellingham, Wash., where her mother was an executive assistant and her father was a chief master sergeant in the Washington Air National Guard.Read More

Hilary Swank Is Poised to Become the Next Great Lifestyle Guru

These days, being just an actress doesn’t cut it—even if you’re a really, really good one. Hollywood 2.0 is all about the side hustle, whether it’s opening a restaurant, investing in a promising tech startup, or, in Hilary Swank’s case, launching a clothing line that reimagines one of the biggest fashion trends in recent years.

Late last year, the Oscar-winning actress joined the ranks of stars-turned-lifestyle gurus like Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, and Ellen DeGeneres and introduced Mission Statement, an activewear brand that redefines athleisure with pieces that you can wear to the gym and beyond. “I couldn’t find anything to address my needs as a modern woman juggling a million different things,” Swank recently told InStyle. “So I decided to make it myself.” Here, more from Swank about her label and burgeoning lifestyle empire.Read More
