Sport Stripes


Bold stripes are breaking out everywhere, inspired by classic sporting attire.

We’re seeing cricket-jersey stripy necklines, tennis-shirt collar stripes, even those 1980s white socks with a single ankle stripe. Bright primary-colour stripes pick out the detail of a zip or pocket, or ride boldly down the length of jersey sleeves. Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 15 collection celebrated the sporty stripe in luxe leather and 70's colours.
