Fashion is still very much celebrating that sporty vibe at the moment, and this season it came infused with old school elements. Think Plimsolls and gym shorts transformed in high-tech fabrics and sports mesh.
Two British designers leading this trend are Stella McCartney and Jonathan Saunders. Key pieces that stood out from their collections included McCartney’s silky sweater dress, a seemingly clear fusion between an American feeling sweater and a classic blazer dress updated for Spring 2014 with a silky luxe finish. Saunders, on the other hand, combined high shine fabrics and contrasting textures or patterns with a slouchy silhouette to achieve his sports luxe feel.
In light of the highly anticipated Topshop x Adidas collaboration that launches today, we’ve decided to share with you five of our top sports luxe pieces currently available on the British high-street.
