This is Mario Testino’s eye on sporty trendy looks with a little help from the ever-so-lovely Carmen Kass. It’s actually an older pictorial, featured in Vogue’s UK edition, the November 2009 issue (from which you had a visual byte of magical whimsicality with Make Do Mend).
I bring you these not because it was reprinted in a current issue of a fashion magazine but because I think all those sporty hipsters out there swearing on sport brands and pretending to be couture-ish should actually dress like this. How many times we’ve seen a neon colored tracksuit with a bigger-than-life label on worn with a glitzy, costly pair of sneakers, dernier cri but actually failing to be fashionable in every way? (I say one too many!) (the story continues with more images right after the jump! click here for the gallery!)
If Sporty Spice was your hero, this is how you update that hipsterness! What looks like a mish mash here on Carmen Kass is actually the peek of being fashionably sporty! Sure, this won’t go with every body type (personality and more) but if you’re looking for a highly sportish, casual, urban, active attire paying attention to style and the rigueurs of fashion, this is what you must consider! I know I would! How about you? (photos via)
