Fashion’s ongoing infatuation with luxe off-duty dressing isn’t about to go anywhere, anytime soon, thanks to Demna Gvasalia, whose mould-breaking label Vetements proved that looking like yourself is the hottest commodity out there. Contemporary and infinitely wearable clothing are leading the sportswear revolution this season. At both Balenciaga and Vetements, Gvasalia twisted the conventions of directional streetwear, sending us all pining over his ever-so-slightly oversized sweaters and beautifully exaggerated proportioned jackets.
Elsewhere, brands like Jacquemus and J.W. Anderson made the case for a season of sculptural fabrics, limitless layering potential, and an ultra-covetable, hi-lo aesthetic. The hero piece leading this sports revolution and filling up our wishlists? The hybrid trackpant. Caught somewhere between causal-sporty-meets-serious-luxury, this athletic pant is proof that comfort and style can actually go hand in hand. How to wear them? Follow the fashion pack and do like Rihanna and Bella Hadid and pair with polished yet minimal numbers – a sheer lace top, crisp white shirt, or a sleek and sharply-cut blazer. Just remember to forget the sneakers; an elevated pair of pretty heels promises plenty of reasons to stand out.
