This cutting-edge book takes a fresh look at the fascinating relationship between the global industries of fashion and sport and accompanies an exhibition at the V&A. Stunning images from sport, advertising, street fashion and the catwalk illustrate the take of prominent sportsmen and women, designers, creative directors, anthropologists and journalist on this popular subject. The book explores how the influence of fashion and sport extends from high performance textiles developed for competition, to high-end fashion and finally, through the filter of adapted advertising and magazine imagery, to the consumer, who adopts and adapts the styles to make their own unique fashion statements.
