Ralph Lauren Releases Team USA's Olympic Uniform
The Olympics are nearly upon us, and it just got a whole lot more fashionable! Ralph Lauren has revealed a new uniform for Team USA’s flag bearer, who’ll walk among the American athletes during the Olympic Games’ opening ceremony in Brazil on August 5. Cool, hey?
The preppy American designer has created a fresh and sporty look for the event, with classic elements and a colour palette of red, white, and blue, created to complement the American spirit. As for the athletes, they’ll be wearing deep navy blazers with gold buttons and a signature embroidered polo pony logo for the parade, with a classic striped T-shirt and white denim jeans. The classic boat shoes, the striped cotton bracelets and the navy grosgrain belts gives a stylish touch to the outfit.
Ralph Lauren has designed more iconic parade uniforms in the past 10 years, as well as an authentic sportswear collection of commemorative pieces for men, women and children.
To further support the American team, the Polo Ralph Lauren Foundation launched the “Like to Light” campaign on social media. For every post shared or liked before 6 Aug, the foundation will donate Dhs3 (it can go up to Dhs300,000) to the United States Olympic Committee’s Team for the Tomorrow programme – a community outreach scheme dedicated to spread values of excellence, friendship and respect.
