Now that the Paris Fashion Week spring/summer 2019 shows have come to an end, we can have an overview of the trends that await us this summer. Let’s take a closer look at the most sportswear trend that we’ve already talked about on Instagram this summer (here) and have also seen at #MFW, especially Fendi, Roberto Cavalli and Vivetta: cycling shorts are making an appearance in our wardrobes!
SPORTY HOLIDAYS FOR CHANEL
Karl Lagerfeld brought back our memories of summer with the fabulous setting of a sun-kissed beach, offering a fresh and feminine Chanel spring/summer 2019 collection with sportswear accents.
In the middle of tweed blazers and suits, the designer elegantly presented cycling shorts to create dynamic, modern looks. Worn like new shorts, cycling shorts brilliantly shook up Chanel’s classic chic style.
REFINED SPORT AT STELLA McCARTNEY
There was a completely different atmosphere at Stella McCartney. A far cry from Chanel’s beaches, the designer invited us into the refined salons of the Opera Garnier. Stella McCartney revealed a sophisticated collection with sporty chic touches.
The British designer presented cycling all-in-ones with floral prints for an urban, feminine look.
A SPORTY, GRAPHIC LOOK FROM MUGLER
For Mugler, Casey Cadwallader presented a graphic, boyish version of cycling shorts. The Mugler look highlighted oversized blazers with ultra-strong shoulders and tapered legs. With graphic stripes and highly colourful prints, we will love playing the cyclist in the know! For the more ambitious, the designer also offered a leather version to confidently show off your curves.
Sporty or not, cycling shorts will undoubtedly be summer’s new trousers. The question is whether we will dare to wear this trend or not… Watch this space!
