It looks like Kate Middleton and Victoria Beckham won’t be the only fashion icons to watch during the games this summer. The London Olympics are going to be more like an international fashion show than they are a sporting event. In fact, they might be more like Project Runway than anything else, with different countries facing off against each other for the best look. We can’t get over how many big-name designers have agreed to design uniforms for the athletes, giving us all the more reason to tune in when the torch makes its way to London this Friday. Here are the top 4 designers to watch at the Olymppics
Country: Great Britain
Designer: Stella McCartney
Who better than Stella McCartney to design the host country’s uniforms? McCartney teamed with Adidas to make Union Jack-inspired outfits for the British team.
Designer: Ralph Lauren
Ralph Lauren designed the closing ceremony and Olympic Village outfits for team USA. The white uniforms with navy and red accents and Ralph’s signature pony logo look just as suited to a New England summer garden party as they do the Olympics.
Designer: Giorgio Armani
Giorgio Armani designed around 50 pieces of white and navy attire for each member of the Italian Olympic team under his EA7 label. Although the athletes won’t actually compete in Armani, they’ll wear his designs to the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as around the village, and they’ll all be using Armani luggage to get from place to place.
Country: San Marino
Designer: Salvatore Ferragamo
Salvatore Ferragamo is making white cotton trousers and trnch coats for the San Marino team.
