The Erik Bjerkesjo Spring/Summer 2015 collection looked to Olympic styles for its inspiration. The runway presentation graced the stage during Fashion Week Stockholm and stunned its audience of onlookers with staples that fused together sleek suits with swimming cap and goggle accessories.

Erik Bjerkesjo's latest menswear collection was a fresh and contemporary update on fashion's current, sportswear obsession. Instead of opting for the common jersey look, the designer took his inspiration to the water and dressed models in swimmer-approved accessories.

Though his inspiration is very apparent, it still evokes subtlety and sophistication rather than a literal translation of underwater apparel. While scuba styles reigned the runways a few seasons ago, masculine triathlon and swimmer looks are emerging as fashion's next sportswear style to watch out for.
