On your mark, get set, go! Gear up in time for spring with the season’s new take on straight-from-the-locker-room looks to whip you into sartorial shape. Teeming with old-school attitude reminiscent of our afternoons in phys ed, nylon, neoprene and the like were manifested in athletic influences such as racerback bras at Gucci, washboard ab-exposing crop tops at Tommy Hilfiger, sun-shielding visors at Marni, tracksuits at Marc by Marc Jacobs and tempting tennis kits at Lacoste. These high-tech fabrics, sheer panels, letterman jackets, team insignia and sports mesh pieces are juxtaposed with luxe, high-gloss finishes of silk and satin to capture the glam in game-day spirit. The result is a uniform decidedly not suitable for playing sport at all.
Be ready to work it off the field with these 20 runway interpretations of the sportswear athletic trend for spring.
