Sportswear is back in a big way and the Marie Claire Italia April 2010 issue is taking it on with a masculine edge. Styled by Ivana Spernicelli, the dramatic fashion story shows model Leah de Wavrin exploring a bold new confidence in some seductive and vulnerable poses.

Shot by photographer Elina Kechicheva, the model seems to be revealing herself through loose silhouettes as well as structured strength. Showing off pieces from Dolce & Gabbana and Jill Sanders, this editorial is all about the season’s hottest female sportswear.
