The Trickle-Down Effect: Catwalk meets Gym!

Sportswear, just like every other fashion category, is shaped by the big designers. It doesn't happen straight away, but trust me, there are Nike, adidas, lululemon and Running Bare designers scribbling "draping, greys, cobalt..." and studiously eyeing the runways. So here's what I'm hoping to see in the not-too-distant future!
Tom Ford's (Autumn/Winter 2013) Nicki Minaj meets Andy Warhol bright pops of neon on geometric prints. Swirling checkerboards and comic book starbursts.
Alexander Wang's clever use of mesh over neon-brights is a super-luxe way to do sporty without looking like an 80s aerobics instructor. The look is even more sleek in black and white.
That last photo is Alexis Mabille Haute Couture - I love the ombre-effect pants. This is sure to appear faster than you can google "ombre" - oop! It's already happening...
