Sportswear goes LUXE
Delicate mesh, silk jersey, and techno fabrics: Designers spared no extravagance when it came to reinterpreting activewear as everyday fashion for the new season. They dipped into the archives of the great ’90s American sportswear revolution, and reworked tuxedo influences onto day pants like at J. Crew and Balmain, while Victoria Beckham added sheer panels to her Ts. “This trend for sportswear seeping into fashion is a reflection of today’s lifestyle. Besides the obvious comfort factor, it is also inspiring innovation in fabric and surface treatments that add an element of luxury to everyday wear,” explains Anjana Sharma, COO and fashion director at Stylista.com.
