Most women athletes today use outfits made from 4-dimensional stretch fabric and have good elasticity. Also very breathable sweat and durable.

The elasticity of the fabric has played a very important role in bringing the comfort of female athletes in recent decades. Not only does the fabric have good elasticity, but it is also beautiful and has a high gloss that helps female athletes as if the artists perform on the catwalk in front of the audience.

Aesthetically, the rise of the shiny fabric helps to strengthen the muscles – the result of the wearer’s workout.

The athletic outfits of gymnastics athletes is increasingly sexy (Part 1)

Let’s look back at the dramatic change in the athletic outfits of female athletes from the 70s of the last century to the present.

We are all too familiar with the image of female gymnastics women wearing short jumpsuits made from stretchy fabric like a one-piece swimsuit. The same is the leotard jumpsuit, but in the past, it was a simple design, but now many of the female athlete’s leotards are not only colorful but can also be attached to 3500 – 4000 sophisticated, sparkling crystals.

The sparkling beaded leotards of the female athletes who have attended the Olympics in recent seasons

The first decades of the last century

The competition outfit of previous female gymnastics was very simple and was like a bathing suit of mothers. The most common style is the low hip, which looks quite obtuse and monotonous. The back of the pants is all butt hug.

As gymnastics was developed, inspired by the dance, the costumes of this discipline were designed so that the wearer can freely move and operate. Apparel fabric is always multi-dimensional stretch fabric, hugging the muscular body of athletes.

About a few decades later, the costumes of female gymnastics have changed more clearly. The hips are raised higher, helping the girls to show off their beauty more clearly.

At the 1976 Olympics, female athlete Nadia Comaneci competed with a leotard set decorated with red, yellow, and blue stripes representing the flag of Romania. This is a familiar decoration on the costumes of female athletes during this period. Nadia’s clothes were not too tight on the body.

Nadia’s outfit is even more sophisticated than her main rival from the Soviet Union, 17-year-old female athlete Nellie Kim. The talented girl wore a purple-colored single-neck leotard and white trim. Nellie Kim often plays with jumpsuits that only have one color.

Over time, the most obvious difference in gymnastics clothes is that the hips are increasingly deep and higher. This change creates a visual effect, helping female athletes with longer and more beautiful legs on the floor.

What surprises to expect about sports fashion in the 2020s? (Part 2)

2. NEW TRENDS

One of the first signs that can be seen is the silent disappearance of the controversial brand Vetements. To keep streetwear life long, pure streetwear brands like Stussy or Supreme will no longer stand alone as they did, instead evolving with collaborations with luxury brands.

For the next 10 years, we look for solutions to tackle fashion waste as well as unsold inventory, continue to create new materials by recycling waste and researching new production technologies. consume less resources.

On a 10-year cycle, during the first years of the decade, the economic crisis took place. That is also the reason for the minimalism to the throne. If about the first half of the previous decade, Chinese people bought brand name in a frantic way, making the maximum style occupy a large market share, maybe the situation will turn around.

The past decade of fashion

Looking back over the past decade of fashion, one of the hallmarks is undoubtedly mutually beneficial collaborative missions. The most common are the handshakes between popular brands or sports brands with a designer or more famous brand.

The type of collaboration in fashion reaches a high level, breaking all prejudices when Louis Vuitton joins Supreme. The author of the project – Kim Jones continued to produce a collection of collaborations between Dior Men and Stussy.

Besides the collaborative project between contemporary artists, we will witness the “non-fashionable” handshake in fashion. Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière is known to love eSports games.

Not only stopped with an advertising campaign using a model in a video game, Louis Vuitton recently launched a project in conjunction with the famous online game League of Legends to design not only the page. for the characters but also for the real people.

This is one of the very successful projects of Louis Vuitton in the past year, promising to create a new trend of collaboration in fashion beyond all limits.

Conclusions

The evolution of 21st-century fashion has not only stopped at the evolution of style or style, but is now a fierce battle over strategy, sales and ideas. Obviously the 10-year period is long enough for a new event to change everything, but there will still be continuity and a new level of what has happened before. Are you ready for the upcoming changes and surprises in fashion this decade?

What surprises to expect about sports fashion in the 2020s? (Part 1)

New year, new decade, the fashion world promises to receive many unexpected changes. What is likely to happen in 2020?

In fashion, 10 years is an important time to mark a period of history. We have just passed the first decade of the 21st century. It is the decade of sports fashion, street fashion, social networks, influencers and Millennials. In the next 10 years, we will also witness the rapid change of the fashion world with unexpected elements.

1. NEW FACTORS AND THE RETURN DAY OF BACKGROUNDS

Fashion is a contradictory field when we are always hungry for new things but we only believe in the hands of successful names. Perhaps the coming decade will meet this dual standard.

In the past 10 years, the fashion industry has set a record for the speed of “changing blood”. 5-year or 10-year contracts are only 3 years old and even many fashion designers can only survive a season.

The idea of ​​replacement will be the famous names before, but the brands have surprised by promoting new talent. The typical phenomenon are Alessandro Michele of Gucci and Daniel Lee of Bottega Veneta, both successful in the brand’s blood transfusion.

Also to mention the long-running “war horses” are Jona Than Anderson of Loewe and Olivier Rousteing of Balmain. In the context of the generation of star designers not making achievements as expected as Raf Simons, Marc Jacobs, it is more and more reason to expect young designers to bring a new wind.

Looking forward to the new, but also from the nostalgia of the golden age. During the Spring – Summer Fashion Week 2020, the talented couturier Christian Lacroix surprised by accepting a collaboration with Dries Van Noten for the collection to revive the fashion-loving hearts that are dying.

Or recently, designer Bouchra Jarrar announced that he would return to Couture Fashion Week after his absence. Although not creating great buzz, the recent return of fashion prince Olivier Theyskens has also been noticed and supported by many people in sports fashion.
