ATH­LETIC LOOKS ARE ALL THE RAGE THIS SEA­SON AS TECHNO FAB­RICS, STREAM­LINED SIL­HOU­ETTES AND PUNCHY TONES MAKE A STATE­MENT FROM THE RUN­WAY TO THE STREETS

Per­haps it’s the en­dur­ing ef­fects of World Cup fever or the global trend for adopt­ing a health­ier life­style, but what­ever the rea­son, the rise of sports­wear as a trend can be seen across both men’s and women’s fash­ion. La­bels like Tom Ford and Ber­luti have re­leased their first col­lec­tion of train­ers this sea­son, while Al­ber El­baz and Lu­cas Ossendri­jver at Lan­vin give the rainbow treat­ment to ac­ces­sories—ny­lon ruck­sacks to ac­com­pany the elec­tric 1980s-in­spired col­lec­tion. Paris-based de­signer Dries Van Noten, known for his ex­quis­ite use of em­broi­dery, also opts for sportier el­e­ments to his col­lec­tion—dip-dyed fab­rics in con­trast­ing navy and yel­low, with an abun­dance of snap but­tons and zips as the key em­bel­lish­ments on breezy parkas and biker styles. Also in line for the trend is Raf Si­mons’ col­lec­tion with US artist Ster­ling Ruby, which fea­tures the artist’s col­lage-in­spired de­signs on typ­i­cally Si­mon­sstruc­tured sil­hou­ettes.
