With the approach of a new season, designers strive to produce collections that are inspiring and original. The big designers have already decided what we’ll be wearing next season and certain trends have emerged that will surely filter into your wardrobe.
For one, grey seems to be the number one color to be on the lookout for. Layering and supersized pockets are also a consensus among designers, as are athletic inspired collections.
Numerous brands have prepared bold 2015 Fall/Winter collections so we decided to take a look at five of the most inspiring brands that have presented athletic inspired collections.
The world-renowned Spanish clothing design and manufacturing company has recently unveiled its Fall 2015 men’s collection. Boasting both comfort and style, Mango’s latest collection features a multitude of breathable tops, windbreakers shirts and hoodies to satisfy the needs of any fashion-forward man. A selection of the sporty fashions was worn by Australian model Jerrod Scott.
This French menswear brand has already made a name for itself after showcasing high-quality materials (such as British twill, Italian merino, Japanese cotton or 100% Peruvian superfine alpaca wool). Its athletic inspired collection for the 2015 Fall/Winter season is based on the value of friendship, camaraderie and competition. Full sweaters and scarfs, knitted sweat pants and Long John Moleskines are the highlight of the collection.
Frank & Oak
If there’s a concept that Frank & Oak have mastered, it’s the focus on clean detail. Its 2015 athletic inspired Fall/Winter collection showcases streamlined fits and cleverly-chosen fabrics. The manufacturer decided to show off its most recent collection, called “State Concepts”, during a visit of the New York City Dogpound gym. State Concepts featres a multitude of premium utility gear that men can choose to wear for both city wanderings and strenuous workouts.
Since inspiration is found in the most unlikely places, Undefeated decided to find it around the world. After the streetwear brand’s summer collaboration with Beats By Dre, the fall/winter collection was bound to be awe-inspiring. Global sports served as Undefeated’s main inspiration. With a heavy emphasis on football, the items belonging to the Fall/Winter 2015 collection showcase unusual combinations and unique prints.

Fall fashion seems to be focused on sports since so many brands have found inspiration here. Ellesse has also released its Fall/Winter 2015 collection and it, too, comes with a bold approach and a keen
eye for athletics. Strong shapes seem to be the focus of the collection, with details showcasing ellesse’s roots in ski. Numerous items stand out, particularly quilted jackets or fitted turtle necks. The color schemes and patterns have also shifted towards more traditional shapes.
