Crea­ti­vi­ty fle­xes its mu­scles, li­fe is one big gym Fle­xing your mu­scles to­day is a col­lec­ti­ve at­ti­tu­de. Fa­shion, tech­no­lo­gy and art show off by bor­ro­wing ma­te­rials, tech­ni­ques and forms from the world of sport, whi­le the fit­ness world aspi­res to en­te­ring the lu­xu­ry uni­ver­se.
