Runway the Athletic Way

The runway is looking to harness-esque pieces, perforated leather, and strong (or lack of) shoulder detailing.

Track suits galore! We’re warming up to watch the Olympics.  From left to right: Christopher Kane, Preen, and Bottega Veneta, all Resort 2013

With the open back and thin straps in the Resort 2013 Alexander Wang collection, the top pieces looks similar to a Women’s swimming or gymnastics uniform. For your warm-up, throw on some loose-fitting leather embossed “workout” shorts and a sweater to keep the heat in, and duh, high-heeled boots.

Resort 2013 from Proenza Schouler did not disappoint. With their new Madison Avenue store and another one in the works, their Resort 2013 collection still stood strong. The cut-off sleeve is reminiscent of mens’ sports uniforms.  And of course, the baggy white pants are just wide-leg enough to remind you of the bottom half of a warm-up suit.

Who would have known that you could dress like a sports star and be fashionable?!
