Sporty editorials are everywhere. Regardless of the season or the magazine, athletic-themed fashion shoots are fun and easily orchestrated.

Whether it’s a polo-themed shoot or football equipment-inspired shoulder pads in a collection, art seems to imitate life in many cases. Terry Richardson experiments with fencing and Candice Swanepoel, while Erin Heatherton plays ball in Harper’s Bazaar Spain.

Athletic-themed fashion shoots can create a contrast between the latest mainstream styles and the sporting world. The recent Thom Browne Fall 2012 menswear line takes dramatic cues from football uniforms, previously touched upon by Alexander Wang’s Spring 2010 collection. Gymnastics-themed photo shoots are also frequently seen, especially when a sportswear line is involved.
