London 2012 Fashion Olympics?
London 2012 is shaping up to be the most fashionable Olympic Games ever! Stella McCartney for adidas set the tone, designing the kit for host nation Team GB, and there are some other fashion heavyweights stepping into the arena.
Italian luxury house Salvatore Ferragamo will be outfitting the Republic of San Marino (a tiny independent Italian state) in a kit that includes a chic trench coat, while Prada will be designing for the Italian Olympic sailing team. But our eyes will be on the French equestrian team, who will be dressed by the storied French luxury brand, Hermès. With its 200-year history specialising in everything equestrian, this has to be the perfect collaboration of style and substance.
Also getting a piece of Olympic action is Ralph Lauren for Team USA, and Emporio Armani EA7, which has designed the official kit for Team Italy. Be chic or go home!
May the most stylish team win!
