MILAN, Italy - Gianni Versace SpA, the Italian luxury-goods maker weighing options to pay for growth, said it plans to sell a minority stake privately before selling shares to the public in three to five years
2012 was a pretty good year for British sport. With the Olympics, Paralympics, Bradley Wiggins winning the Tour de France, and Andy Murray won the US Open as well as Olympic gold, it’s no wonder that Sports Luxe was back in fashion for men. Initially a spring/summer trend, it looks set to stick around.
How You Can Get The Look
Throw on a tracksuit and some trainers; pretend you’re off to the gym? You’re forgetting the luxe’ part. Look to sportswear as inspiration not the gospel; keep the cut of the mens clothes in mind and have fun with textures and fabrics. Mix smart and casual for an exciting look.
Autumn/winter styles always have a more muted colour palate, reflecting, strangely enough, autumnal colours. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, though you may think it might make you fade away in a crowd, but if you pair interesting colours together such as a burgundy and a forest green in the same outfit, then it can make someone look twice.
The Bomber Jacket men’s clothing sale A key piece for the sports luxe trend, the bomber jacket is a short jacket with ribbed cuffs and hem. Find one that fits in with your personal style so it complements the rest of your wardrobe. You could go for a baseball style jacket, a leather bomber or something inexpensive in cotton- it’s the silhouette that matters for this sports inspired trend. If you’re looking for something that puts you apart, then opt for something in a pattern or with contrasting sleeves.
Pop it on over the top of a men’s t shirt for a sharp smart-casual combination.
The canvas Trainer mens fashion clearance sale Along with the usual big sportswear names, one of the best designers for the trainer is Cruyff.
