You’re more likely to see street style interpretations of the sports fashion trend than you are to see photo shoots revolving around the motif. As much as people love interpreting the pieces that make up the trend, few people are game enough (that’s not a pun) to wear the look head to toe. Such is the magic of modern fashion that trends and styles can easily be paired and blurred, even where there is no natural cohesion. And while the lines are never quite blurred, you do get a strong sense of this in Elle Denmark’s Gymnastic Rhythm.
It’s a pictorial that, save for the setting, never quite strays into the realm of sports fashion. Not in the most obvious of ways, anyway. Sure, there’s the odd minimalist crop top, but they are both their own trend and a part of the sports trend. And you can say the same for the hot pants before the photo shoot blurs out into other styles altogether. But those styles all keep the minimalism and simplicity intact. The photo shoot, like modern fashion, not playing to a sole motif but instead a sole feeling. And style is always about feeling.
