It’s official. Tennis is a mini-trend this season in New York, making distinct appearances in no less than four collections, including that of Louise Goldin, who offered a sharp, minimalistic take on lawn-sport style. Her spin on it was crisp and spare, with the classic tennis dress — fitted top, short flared skirt — providing the dominant silhouette.

Versions came in white tipped in black and vice versa. Some had curved cutout techniques or were layered with white shirts with extra-long sleeves. Another strong pairing was cropped shirts shown with skirts done in what looked like lasered lace.

Goldin managed to render the sport theme with a cool, sexy hand without ever yielding to its preppy or literal side. She upped the sophistication level through her prowess in technical knits, ranging from a soft waffled sweater to densely woven yet lightweight gauges that gave the clothes great shape.
