Three designers that really stood out to me, in order of favorites were John Elliott, Alexander McQueen, and Michael Bastian.
I want to focus particularly on John Elliott's designs as I was very impressed by his every piece. Not only his style reflects the super hot athletic trend, it also demonstrates finesse on his design techniques. Vogue mentions that John traveled to different parts of the world and really did his homework on how to create each individual look to achieve both uniqueness and functionality. Now that is #respect right there. Not only this designer is creative but he is also inspiring by bringing together what he learned across the globe.
"Hoodies, thermals, and raglan pullovers were richly fabricated in gauzy French terry, flannel, or leather patchwork. All the fabrics were complex and textured—one in particular, a wool-bonded aluminum made into flight jackets and shorts, enabled the wearer to bend and sculpt them if he so chooses. Only exhaustive research could result in something like that. Same with Elliott’s use of a stitching technique known as sashiko, originally developed to repair and reinforce kimonos, which he discovered on a trip to Japan. Completing the fully realized look was the designer’s first foray into footwear, nubuck high-tops with a small strip of leather resembling laces tied at the back of the ankle." - Vogue
John Elliott and his military squad (can anyone do #squadgoals better??):

I was taken over immediately by the very first all-white ensemble:
