Sportmax Fall 2012: Urban Martial Artists at Milan Fashion Week

Sportmax Fall 2012: Urban Martial Artists at Milan Fashion Week
MILAN - Did you notice that the shapes from Sportmax this Fall/Winter 2012-2013 looked like the shapes found in karate, judo, and Tae Kwan Do uniforms? It was obvious that Sportmax took its inspiration from martial arts, particularly in the dress fighters wear when they're showcasing their skill. Oriental themes are obviously big for Fall so this is not particularly surprising but it was interesting how Sportmax chose to play up this theme in a streamlined sportswear way, rather than the more elegant style of say, Zac Posen's glamorous Eastern-inspired gowns. The collection in general played up Fall themes and maintained an urban vibe that is directly in line with the signature Sportmax look, though there were more royal blues and blacks than we've ever seen before.

Appearances: Bette Franke, Kate King, Ruby Aldridge, Aymeline Valade, Mirte Maas, Ginta Lapina, Zuzanna Bijoch, Kaitlin Aas, Daga Ziober, Jourdan Dunn
