The Analise is designed after the endless intensity, earned respect, constant focus, confidence, natural beauty, courage, and the incredible Superhero powers of the amazing Analise. When I set out to design this piece for her, I started writing down the list of things that make her amazing. I quickly ran out of paper. Then I read through what I wrote; West Point Graduate, Army Captain, Military Spouse (her husband is just as amazing as her! He's a West Point Graduate and Multi-Ironman himself!), Mother, Professional (like she's crazy-respected at work!), Physics Major (she's wicked smart!), MULTI-time Ironman!!, the list goes on and on. What is most compelling about Analise is the level of intensity she does everything with. She does not do anything less than 150% - all the time. The element that makes this so unique to her is she has the ability to accomplish that level of intensity, and it doesn't even look like she's trying! It comes so naturally to her. It is simply the only way she knows how to operate. It is her standard of excellence. She expects it from herself, and she works with others to get them there are well. Her suggestions and advice help people get to their own maximum level of intensity. Leadership and courage exude out of her, and her sense of confidence is nothing short of complete content. She is in every sense of the intent, a "commissioned leader of character".
So you can imagine I went through several designs in an attempt to develop something to honor her service, the woman she became, and everything she is yet to accomplish. This was one of three designs. The day before the New York Fashion Week Show, I watched her quietly look at the pieces I had selected for her. This was my favorite for her, but I wanted to see what she gravitated towards. This was the piece I saw her wearing. This was the piece I designed to be noticed without being flashy, to earn respect versus demanding it, to go with the constant flow of life, and be timeless. It's designed to put your hands in the pockets without the bulk. It's designed to be unzipped and include a cold child underneath if you need to (the spandex blend in the cotton is specifically for that!). It's designed for the warm Fall day that turns cold quickly, and you add a scarf and keep going. The arms are tight in case you want to take it on a cool bike ride with you (the seams hit just below the elbows). This was the piece I designed to be strong and intense. This piece is designed to represent and honor the incredible "commissioned leader of character" that the incredible Analise is and always will be. This is HER "Coat of Honor".
