The essence of sporty-chic

Australia has the sports-luxe aesthetic nailed. Which makes sense, if you consider the sunburnt country’s love of outdoor activities, and it’s penchant for turning effortless style statements into something more sophisticated.

Photographer Kelly Defina captures these styles in a simple and pure manner – representing the sports fashion exactly as it should be seen.

Featuring gorgeous model Alexandra Storm (@ Pricilla’s Model Management), Defina’s shoot uses clean lighting and plain backdrops to keep the spotlight on the ultra-chic pieces. From the creations of Kahlo (by design duo Rachelle Sinclair and Fay Ogunbadejo) and The Upside (designed by Jodi Meares) to the inspirations for online boutique Style Runner, there is one prevailing notion throughout: that aesthetically sporty clothing can be both luxe and minimalistic, practical and chic.
