Sports aesthetic

Spring 12

Trend summary

With the Olympics on the horizon, it seemed fitting that many designers looked to functional athleticism for spring 12 that can be worked in several different styles. Sporty fabrications such as jersey, mesh, nylon and neoprene were key.

How to buy it

True sportswear styles bring a 1990s feel for the youth market, while a minimalist luxe interpretation will work for the contemporary market alongside a more directional scuba vibe. Look to simple sporty details such as drawstring waists, zippers and hooded updates to give basic pieces an on-trend athletic twist.
