Best of the High Street: Embrace the Sports Luxe Trend

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.
