Fashion fit for Olympians
Wow, we’re impressed by just how fash-ON the Olympics are becoming. No sooner have we recovered from the amazing news that Stella McCartney is leading the design team for the British athletes’ outfits, we’re hit by the even more dazzling news that the Italian team will be dressed by none other than Emporio Armani’s sportswear line EA7!
According to The Telegraph, Armani will reveal more at an official press conference next week. Meanwhile Stella McCartney said about her role: ‘As a British fashion designer it is an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be creative director of Team GB as the hosting nation of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The Telegraph wonders which other countries might call on the services of their biggest fashion names. Gaultier for France? Alaia for Tunisia? Personally we are planning to start officially lobbying the German government to appoint our favourite TV fashion personality Harald Glööckler as official designer for the German team. Please Germany, don’t let us down.
If only our PE kit had been so high fashion, we might have made more of an effort during rounders matches.
