Just in time for the 30th America's Cup this month, the newest high-tech fashions take their cues from sailing gear.

Prada's support of the Luna Rossa sailing team (which required a look as distinctive as its yacht's design) and Louis Vuitton's sponsorship of the Challenger Series (a succession of qualifying races leading up to the Cup) are making waves in the fashion world. Here, great gear that stands up to tough competition--and also to tough travel. Outfit yourself and catch a breeze.
