In case you hadn’t heard, Transcendental Meditation is on the rise as of late, especially within the fashion crowd. “I think it’s because it’s a very crazy world full of very creative people and word spreads quickly,” explains model and actress Alyssa Miller, who is a dedicated practitioner (along with the likes of Martin Scorsese, Paul McCartney, Oprah, Italo Zucchelli of Calvin Klein, and David Lynch, who has his David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace), of the style set’s TM obsession. “It changed my life.”
That’s a mantra you’ll hear a lot from its followers. When Miller bonded with New York-based fashion publicist Robyn Berkley over their life-changing experiences with TM, the two decided to collaborate on a capsule collection (launching today at Barneys) for Berkley’s activewear line, Live the Process.
What is TM, exactly? “In short, TM is just a way of getting through the chaos of your day-to-day life,” says Miller. “You spend twenty minutes in the morning and twenty minutes at night giving yourself the time to sort through your emotions. It’s all about change from within, like our T-shirt logo says, and this collection just made sense because it’s about eating well, working out, taking care of yourself, and giving back.”
The capsule line, with prices ranging from $105 to $170, includes two bra tops, several floral print bottoms, and an exclusive T-shirt designed in association with New York artist Jason Woodside that says, “Change Begins Within, Live the Process.” (A portion of the proceeds goes to Lynch’s foundation, which gives scholarships to military personnel, survivors of domestic abuse, and schoolchildren so they can learn the practice.)
And, not to worry, the gear isn’t limited to the gym. Or the club, for that matter. “I wear it all day—shopping, meditating, running errands, and working out,” says Miller. “I could get behind wearing it at night, too—maybe the pants with a chic button-up and heels?”
