Lets face it. I am an airhead. Watching the olympics last night, all i could think about who designed what.
so lets start with a brief of who wore what:
- The United Kingdom team, aka TEAM GB (Great Britin) was wearing Stella Mc Cartney .. note that this design picture above has recieved a lot of criticism within the UK because Stella made the red in the union flag on the uniforms blue. Personally i find it daring and amazing ( read more about that here http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2118709/London-2012-Team-GB-models-Olympics-kit-designed-Stella-McCartney-Adidas.html )
The USA, was wearing naturally Ralph Lauren
European republic of San Marino, was wearing Salvatore Ferragamo
Italians kit is designed by Giorgio Armani,but its not enough to have only one HOT designer.. no they have waterproof blue designs for their sailing team by Prada.
Paris-based Hermes, meanwhile, is outfitting the French equestrian team.
“Fashion designer Cedella Marley, daughter of reggae legend Bob Marley, took the opportunity to push the limits of traditional opening ceremony uniforms for Jamaica.”
side note “Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld has created a line of Olympic-themed T-shirts — dubbed Team Karl — that went on sale at the British department store Selfridges on Tuesday. ”
