Sportswear turns to technology as it looks to the future, embracing sculptural shapes and streamlined detailing with upgraded fabrics and styling. On both him and her, we see the combination of sleek, comfortable performance apparel blended with technology and fashion for a futuristic, urban look.

The Futurist

Color and Scheme
Primarily, the Futurist sticks to a modern, edgy palette of black, white and gray, and is accented with texture coming from the different patterns that are utilized. Many featured patterns emulate the blur of speed or pay homage to a more technical feel; blurred, exaggerated patterns bring a sense of energy to both the fabric and the style. These future-forward, dark palettes are often elevated with flashes of hot red-orange hues and/or dulled industrial metallics. 

Styles seamlessly transition from gym to street with premium details like welded elements that finish seams with tech-sport effects. Additional featured details like contrast-colored binding, welded taping, and reflective elements add a cutting edge look to already-modern styling. Additionally, unexpected graphic placements add a point of interest to a stand-out look.  

If you’re interested in this trend, you’re not alone. We expect that this one will be prevalent for a while; unique combinations of texture and technical fabrics will bring a modern edge to your style.
