It’s time to dress like an NBA star


Score off the court in easy athletic styles with these eight MVP looks. Created from standout pieces from the spring collections, here are easy ways to add a bit of vibrancy to your everyday outfit.

Stick to neutral layers with a single pop of color, like Bottega Veneta’s citrine green trainers or Louis Vuitton’s pink and purple ombré version, or swap out that white shirt for a lemon yellow t-shirt from Loro Piana. This red zipped track jacket from Celine by Hedi Slimane instantly adds agility and ease to a refined look.

Ditching slim fits in favor of loose silhouettes like Balenciaga’s baggy tracksuit or JW Anderson’s wide-leg pants is synonymous with comfort and freshness. Take a break for the ultra-chic shorts from Louis Vuitton and Hermès that combine the shape of a basketball basic with the texture and finishes of a luxury garment.

Meanwhile, luxe half-zip sweaters and lightweight anoraks have the skills to take casual ensembles to the next level. —Jenny Hartmann
