Fashion has often flirted with sports, and this season designers served up a stylish tennis vibe of the vintage variety. Think Patou, not performance. “It’s a timeless look,” says José Ramón Réyes, whose collection delivered beautifully on this Twenties motif. “It’s that ease in sportswear with a chic Parisian feeling.”
