Sportswear isn’t just for sport. It’s always been this casual iteration of luxury, away from the strictness and rigidity of tailoring and haute couture. Oftentimes, it’s also the go-to style for travel, as proposed and proven by Zoe Jordan’s Fall 2019 Collection. Inspired by the Masai people in Kenya—which the designer recently visited with her family—she reimagined their garments and exotic lifestyle into luxury sportswear. Fabulously cozy knits bore the Masai’s iconic checks, while gray zebra print evoked the wildlife they’re often surrounded in. Silhouette-wise, Jordan stay within sleek and form-fitting shapes, giving the wearer all the agency to go about her adventures. The way these clothes were constructed, it was as if they were draped on the body, similarly to how the Masai people are clothed by their own unique garments. This, however, was pure luxury, and looks like Zoe Jordan is prepared to take on this new market!
