Sporty feminine is a softer, feminine side of sportswear, using gentler fabrics and accessories. Lace and organza are added to reinterpret sporty classics, such as the bomber or windbreaker.
Details such as stripey bows or ribbons add an intersting touch to the sporty/active look book. Ribbed cuffs and accents are also an important feature.
Jersey dresses have contrasting trims and great attention is given to the shoulders with lots of offerings and variations of cut-outs.
Shimmering fabrics and accents are borrowed from the world of dance, as well as technical fabrics, to jazz it up.
Trousers too, take inspiration from activewear, but are softened by delicate contrasts and lace inserts.
Underwear and sportswear are formed in unison, inspired by the costumes of dancers and gymnasts.
On the one hand, light, sheer fabrics, but then, comfortable and functional shapes in shades of pink and nude.
In knitwear, shoulders are given special attention and sleeves are softened with ruffles, ribbing and shades of pink.
Colours are soft, such as pastels, nudes and natural hues. Set against blacks and greys, as well as vivid violet tones.
