NEW YORK — Spring trends will cross many themes, from utility-inspired looks to cleaned up, feminine ensembles.
Angela Ahrendts, Liz Claiborne’s executive vice president, said sportswear is much more simplified and streamlined for spring. “It’s more classic, more refined, there’s a lot of men’s wear influences, kind of like boyfriend classics,” she said. “The whole bohemian thing is over and it’s about cleaned-up classics.”
Here’s what moderate and better sportswear makers said will be the hottest items next season:
Zippered pocket details.
Fashion denim with new embroidery treatments and washes.
Skirts, especially skirts with novelty hemlines.
Cotton jackets and jacket alternatives.
Twinsets and fine gauge, seasonless sweaters.
