Vin + Omi Work With Team GB Athletes on Recycled Sports Clothing

GOOD SPORTS: The British label Vin + Omi has another eco-minded collection in the pipeline. For fall 2020 the designers have allied themselves with Team GB Olympians and are whipping the athletes’ unused clothing and equipment from sponsors into runway-ready punk pieces.
Omi described the fall 2020 show, which takes place at The Savoy hotel on Feb. 14, as its “largest, most recycled” yet. Team GB sailor Hannah Mills and fencer James Honeybone, who walked in Vin + Omi’s spring/summer 2020 show, contributed their unused pieces.
“We utilized every single bit of a fencing kit — from the blades, to the sabre, to the masks. Everything was chucked into” an entire look, said Omi.
Other highlights include a coat that was made by hand from a sail, as well as a jacket sporting all the Team GB sponsors’ logos jumbled together.
“The pieces are designed to be slightly unwearable to show the awkwardness of the sport being bastardized by advertising,” Omi added. “It’s amazing to see how much branding one sport has at one event.”
For 16 years, the London-based designers have been attempting to push the limit of sustainable clothing production and have dressed celebrities including Beyoncé and Michelle Obama. They also work with private

Olympic, Paralympic Italian Athletes Close Emporio Armani Show

“It was incredible to see obviously the pride of the Italian nation and of Mr. Armani, who is the real image of Italy, coming out with the athletes. It was incredibly powerful – I got goosebumps,” admitted Tom Bateman after the Emporio Armani show.
The actor was referring to the finale of the show, which was closed by 20 Olympic athletes and nine Paralympians of the Italian team wearing the new EA7 Emporio Armani uniforms for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, with graphics paying homage to Japan. Previously, Giorgio Armani has dressed the Italian athletes at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, and the Sochi 2014 and Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics. The athletes walked to the tune of “Love is in the Air,” around a stage lit up to reproduce the colors of the Italian flag.

Pro Athletes Are the New Models: How Sports Stars Are Taking Over

Ana Ivanovic

There has never been a chicer time to be a sports fan. Athletes sit front row during Fashion Week, appear on the covers of the most influential magazines, express their personal style like never before on red carpets and street style blogs—and the rise of the fashion-plate athlete has provided the modeling industry with a unique opportunity. With their sculpted physiques and built-in fan bases, athletes offer a cachet that few models outside of industry superstars with occasional reality TV–enhanced audiences like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner can match. While fitness-focused brands have always looked to athletes as representatives—Michael Jordan’s mutually beneficial relationship with Nike has now exceeded three decades—increased demand has led to sports stars collaborating with a wider range of brands. From Russell Westbrook’s capsule collections for Barneys New York to Rafael Nadal posing for Emporio Armani, the fashion potential of sports stars is seemingly infinite.

One man looking to bridge the gap between fashion and sports is Angus Munro. As the longtime casting director for shows like Rick Owens and Ann Demeulemeester, Munro helped to usher in an edgy aesthetic on the runways, and with his latest venture, P1 Management, he aims to revamp the entire modeling industry. Dedicated to harnessing the fashion power of sports figures, P1’s photogenic roster includes tennis ace Ana Ivanovic, Olympic gold medalist Anna Fenninger, and Real Madrid’s James Rodríguez. Though weeks away from launching P1, Munro has big plans for the company’s future. Find out how he translated his sports-nerd past into a full-fledged agency, and why he feels that athletes can bring something fresh to the industry.

What can an athlete bring to the table that a traditional model cannot?
With my other company, AM Casting, I believe we have been at the forefront of street and real-people casting in our work with, say, Uniqlo, Diesel, i-D, and Rick Owens. This is a trend that shows no sign of abating. I think consumers respond to aspirational characters who are not just aspirational because of their looks. I just always think to myself, “What is more inspiring and aspirational than someone who has dedicated their life to becoming one of the best in the world . . . Oh, and who is also really good-looking!” Therefore, one of my athletes in a campaign can bring a whole new dimension to that ad, and perhaps a whole new audience to the brand.

Why do you think so many athletes are interested in fashion right now?
I think athletes, just like other non-fashion people, have been becoming more and more dialed into what is happening in the fashion business. . . .  This is largely due to social media and the Internet as a whole. And as a result of this, the aspirational industries of music, sports, and fashion are cross-pollinating more and more—look at A$ AP [Rocky], Kanye, et cetera. Bearing this in mind, it is a surprise to me that we are really the first dedicated “model” agency for sports stars.

How did the idea for P1 become a reality?
I’m a sports nerd—really, I am! I spend the majority of my free time playing or watching sports, but the fashion industry is my life and has been incredibly good to me. And I had been trying since the mid-nineties to find a way to interface sports and fashion. The problem was that the world of fashion saw sports stars as a little “cheesy” (for want of a better word), and sport, in general, was not considered cool. But I really couldn’t shake the feeling that this was a matter of perception and that such perception would change . . . and change it duly did. I also needed to do this with partners who not only could bring different skills and backgrounds to the table, but who also really got my vision for this project.

Who are some of the athletes you will be launching with?
P1 Management has some incredible talent already who are as excited about this unique agency as we are. To name but a few, we are launching with Ana Ivanovic (world tennis no. seven), James Rodríguez (Real Madrid and Colombia, World Cup 2014 Golden Boot), Anna Fenninger (Olympic gold in skiing), Alexander Rossi (currently second in GP2 Series, the feeder championship to Formula 1), Alizé Lim (world tennis no. 182). We also have Dan Biggar, Leigh Halfpenny, George North, and Owen Farrell, who will all be competing in the Rugby World Cup in September. Danny Amendola, the New England Patriots’s wide receiver, leads our line in American sports at the moment. But we will be announcing some more exciting names very soon—watch this space.

What are the types of campaigns or brand partnerships you see these athletes getting?
We are getting an overwhelming reaction already, and we are still two weeks away from our official launch! Thus far, it is pretty much exactly as we had envisaged: Interest is coming from all areas of the business, from high fashion to mainstream beauty and lifestyle brands. Personally, I would love to do something like an Abercrombie or Gap campaign with all my athletes together.

Who would be your dream athlete to work with?
Any player (handsome or not) from my football team, Queens Park Rangers!

Ahem. Sorry. Seriously now, there are a few, actually, but I can’t mention names, as we are in discussions with them already! Probably the best way to answer this would be to name a retired athlete, so I suppose someone like David Beckham. He is a style icon, a nice bloke, and actually helped pave the way to P1 Management becoming a reality.

Adidas Targets Teen Girl Athletes With Adigirl

Adidas is making the female athlete its priority and it’s hoping to start her young. Wednesday evening, the brand hosted a fashion show in New York City to launch Adigirl, its first technical collection targeted specifically to high school aged female athletes. Just in time for back-to school, the collection is already available on adidas.com and at Dick’s Sporting Goods, its primary retail partner for Adigirl, now for sale in over 200 Dick’s stores as well as dicksportinggoods.com.
“Our focus is how to be the best sports brand in the world,” said Kate Ridley, vice president of Adidas Training, at the opening of the presentation. “We can ‘t do that without having a meaningful connection with female athletes.”
Adigirl targets five classic American high school sports: basketball, volleyball, track, softball and soccer with performance apparel — no footwear for now — that is technical in design with attention to age-appropriate style, and an approachable price point. The collection prices range from $ 25 for a sports bra to $ 90 for a fleece jacket.
“We obsessed,” said Katie Becker, senior design director for Adidas training and sportswear, noting that focus groups conducted at high schools, hanging out before and after practice were part of the field work yielding key insights. “She’s

14 Badass Girl Athletes Show Off Their Game Faces

The 2015 Women’s World Cup begins on June 6, and to commemorate the occasion, the clothing brand Wildfang is showcasing some badass young female soccer players.

The company’s CEO Emma McIlroy teamed up with photographer Andrea Corradini to create “#GameFace,” a series of fierce photos of 14 athletes ages 5 to 14. “We are beyond excited about the Women’s World Cup. It’s one of the most amazing moments in sports and women get to take center stage,” McIlroy told The Huffington Post, adding, “We wanted to look forward to the next generation of female footballers and, as you can see, the future of the sport is in good hands.”

The creators reached out to local soccer coaches in Portland, Oregon and invited their young female players to show off their “game faces,” which they define on the Wildfang website as “their most authentic moment, right before they stepped out onto the pitch.”

gameface
Tess, 11: “Cheetahs are my favorite animal — they’re almost as fast as I am.”

Unsure if anyone would show up to the photo shoot, McIlroy and Corradini were pleasantly surprised when over a dozen bold, young athletes stopped by — most coming right before or immediately after practice. With “zero styling,” each girl proudly displayed her purest game face.

“They showed up with such innocent and fierce pride,” Corradini told The Huffington Post. “They were confident, yet giggly. Independent, yet bonded with their teammates. They had no reservations about just being themselves and letting me photograph them in their most natural and authentic way.”

“We wanted to show young females as they truly are — raw, powerful, beautiful,” McIlroy added, noting that she hoped the photo series would provide a refreshing alternative to the images of “young women in pink and wearing princess dresses” that seem so pervasive in today’s society.

The Wildfang CEO also said she hopes other women can “see a little of themselves” in the hardworking female athletes depicted in #GameFace. “We hope they remind them to be a little bolder and tougher and ultimately be really proud of being who they are,” she continued. “Our hope is these images leave you feeling inspired to go kick ass in your day.”

Keep scrolling to see the badass young women of #GameFace and visit the Wildfang blog to learn more about the series.
