Sportswear: vintage look, new season
There was a shift in sportswear this season. Sure, expected injections of nineties youth culture courtesy of Gosha and the gang were still present, but the general mood played to the more distant past of seventies and eighties athletic wear. Think Princess Di in a grey-marl sweater and cycling shorts or Farah Fawcett’s silky runners. Get to grips with this new take on vintage sportswear…

The parachute jacket
The shell suit jacket got a French couture makeover at Koché. Look out for parachute shapes as your summer cover-up of choice.
Racer stripes on repeat
Show your stripes in fluorescent-pink technical jersey. Let’s face facts: Gucci’s been streaking ahead since the fifties on this one.
Calf socks + sneakers
They’ve been a sporting power couple since, well, forever. But pairing socks and sneakers with a punchy harlequin knit courtesy of Christian Dior Vintage is so right for now.
The track jacket
Once a humble signifier of nineties counterculture. Now a ubiquitous staple that scopes far beyond the realms of casualwear. This is revival of the fittest.
The sweatshirt is the OG waist tie. Come rain or shine, around the waist or across the body, it’s a key detail.
The tank top returns
We have eighties Cindy Crawford (and present-day Bella Hadid) to thank for this one. Knot at the front for extra authenticity.Above: Agnes wears jacket and top, both by Off White from Vitkac, shorts by Adidas from Di Pierro, and silk scarf (worn in hair) by Gucci from A.N.G.E.L.O Vintage.
Silky mini shorts
Your beloved school gym gear is cooler than ever. Don’t call it a comeback. This new mix is part fifties, part seventies for a look that’s all new.Above: Agnes wears shirt by Gucci and shorts by Fila, both from Spazio Pritelli; sneakers by Golden Goose Deluxe Brand from O’, and earrings by Chanel Vintage from Dressing Factory.
