You always expect sportswear at New York Fashion Week--and there was plenty on offer this season. But some of those sportier elements--mesh, tracksuits, and bombers--have jumped across the pond to London and Milan, though they're not popping up in the way you'd expect them to. One needs to look no further than Prada for knee-high athletic tube socks (we're not sure how the bejewelled version would do on the field, though), Gucci for glamorous basketball shorts (it's possible!), or Antonio Marras for a chic mesh jacket, for evidence of the trend.
London and Milan put an unexpected twist on sportswear.
