With a grey tonality not uncommon in spring 2010  collections, and fitting cohesively with the sports fashion trend the coif (the soft, fitted head piece in the picture below) is again capturing the imagination of the fashion forwards.

Styled from pliable material, the return of the coif has largely come about as a result of the work of Russian fashion designer Vika Gazinkaya.

If you’re after something far less minimalist don’t overlook a similar piece from Alexander Wang’s Spring 2010 collection; made of leather, it takes its inspiration from a boxer’s headpiece and is equally as suited to the sports trend if a little harder to wear day to day.
