With the Tokyo Olympics on the horizon, get a head start by choosing luxe takes on athletic-inspired looks. Shot on basketball courts and tracks in Brooklyn, these energetic ensembles are sure to set style records. First up at the starting line are retro-style jackets from Celine by Hedi Slimane, Canali and Bode and boldly hued hooded pieces from Louis Vuitton and Lacoste, which can be thrown over classic Ralph Lauren polos or easy shirts from Hermès or Emporio Armani.

Lap the competition in brightly coloured outerwear offerings from Herno and Isabel Marant, which pair well with shorts from New England–based running brand Tracksmith. Yellow and green track-style pants from Moncler and Gucci are equally eye-catching, while matching sets from Miu Miu and Versace double up on impact. To make a strong play for style, go for striking sneakers from Loewe, Onitsuka Tiger, Rag & Bone and Prada—all of which will fit nicely in a foldable Paravel gym bag. —Kevin Huynh
