Unisex Active & Sportswear

Key Trends from ISPO Fall/Winter 2016-17

This week, the experts at Trendstop bring you a special feature dedicated to the latest developments emerging in the sportswear sector, as we reveal three directional new trends that combine athletic, performance-led design with fashion-led trends. Members of our international team of trend-spotters were recently stationed at ISPO Fall 2016 in Munich, analysing each and every collection presented on the trade show floor. ISPO is a global platform for sports business professionals, showcasing over 2,600 international brands across sectors like Outdoor & Ski and Action & Performance Sports; drawing over 80,000 visitors from around the world this year, it proved an essential destination to discover what’s new in sporting goods, fashion and athletic footwear.

Utility-inspired styles are stripped back with a minimal aesthetic, creating clean, functional styles for winter. Clean-lined shapes update outdoor jackets and parkas, on show with earthy green colourways and mattified canvas textures. Utility detailing takes the form of multi-pockets, zips and small-scale novelty fastenings.


Undercover Denim Blue

Denim blue evolves with a dark grey cast for fall, producing a versatile shade with urban stealth undertones. The colour introduces depth to winter outerwear pieces, working well across fur-trimmed parkas and padded outdoor jackets. Accessories are also updated with a fashion-forward feel, as seen with durable denim-effect watches.


Marled Active Textures

Marled textures are introduced to the active wardrobe this season, creating a key materials story for winter. Different strands of yarn are twisted together in tonal neutral hues, with thick fibres adding warmth to cosy zip-ups or functional bags. Some brands incorporate contrast textures like colour pop rubber or embossed wovens for added interest.
