NEW YORK…Active has been a clear influence on the runway for a few seasons, with sportier labels like Y-3 bringing highly innovative twists to the market. For S/S 09 the label will debut another boutique in Soho, carrying these creatively layered silhouettes in a limited color palette. Mesh and graphic stripes figured heavily with standouts like a red monochrome ensemble and cuffed sweat shorts catching the eye. Consider incorporating an element of active for juniors during upcoming seasons.
