Sport luxe is a look that many designers are embracing, the latest involving the Jonathan Simkhai Resort 2015 collection. Instead of being inspired by sports on the whole, it channels the spirit of basketball for designs that could easily grace a court--a royal court, that is. Feminine, futuristic and glamorous, the designs meld comfort and style perfectly.

The influence behind the Jonathan Simkhai Resort 2015 collection is "best represented in a pair of dressed-up basketball shorts done in shimmery pink leather, which could easily be worn for evening in place of a skirt," Style.com points out. Yet the netting details and ribbed knits are also high points for the collection. The palette is also fairly neutral. Overall, casual chic is given a streamlined makeover that athletes and non-athletes will both enjoy.
