From the Runway to the Track: Top Designers Dress 2012 Olympic Athletes
Giorgio Armani for Team Italy: For a team that comes from a country known as world's fashion capital, who else but Giorgio Armani would be a perfect man to dress them. Armani presented his almost minimalist white and midnight-blue Olympic collection recently.
While he has avoided using the white, red and green of the Italian flag excessively, you can see a patriotic streak where he has embroidered the first sentence of Italy's national anthem on the inside lining of the uniform jackets and on the back of polo shirts collars, in gold. The athletes will wear the sports suits at the opening ceremony and in formal occasions, but not to compete.
