David Lynch Releases His Own Line Of Exercise Wear For Ladies

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

If one were to make a list of celebrities likely to create a line of workout wear for women, David Lynch wouldn't even be on that list, let alone at the bottom. But oddly enough, that's exactly what Lynch has done. Available via Live The Process, the David Lynch Collection has two tops (a scoop bra and a corset bra) and three bottoms (high-waisted leggings, capris and shorts) available, both in a pastel floral print of light blues and grays. There is also a simple white T-shirt that reads "Change Begins Within" and "Live The Process" that is a collaboration between the David Lynch Foundation and New York artist Jason Woodside, who has also worked with the Obey clothing line. Also collaborating is model Alyssa Miller, who shows off the products on the site, ET Online reports.

Live the Process is a "luxury lifestyle brand" focusing on holistic wellness founded by Robyn Berkley. According to her bio, Berkley was a busy NYC branding consulting who went to Bali to find herself and came home a certified yoga instructor. She then turned this experience into an online resource for fitness-minded people who want to read articles about energy healing and can afford to spend $130 on a pair of shorts to wear to the gym.

But wait: a portion of the proceeds will go to The David Lynch Foundation, and will go on to help victims of abuse, so that's good. This actually makes sense because the full name of the foundation is The David Lynch Foundation for Conscientious Healing and Education and World Peace; Lynch, who has practiced transcendental meditation since 1973, seeks to use the mantra meditation method to help victims of trauma. Twin Peaks fans will recall Special Agent Dale Cooper had mystical interests and relied heavily on dreams and Tibetan mythology in his detective work.

Additionally, David Lynch has his own line of coffee, which also makes sense considering that one of Cooper's favorite things was a damn fine cup of coffee.
