Stella McCartney To Design For 2016 Olympics. The designer partners with Team Great Britain again, following her successful 2012 debut.
Following her successful debut at the 2012 London Olympics, Stella McCartney will once again be designing the Team GB kits for the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro. The British designer has good form in the sporting arena: she’s also previously designed several ensembles for female competitors at Wimbledon.
The kits will once again be part of McCartney’s ongoing collaboration with adidas. For the London Olympics, McCartney designed 590 different items for the 900 athletes competing in 46 sports, incorporating the colours of the Union Jack – but with an emphasis on blue and white. The project took two years to complete and gaining widespread praise for its sleek and functional design. We can’t wait to see what she comes up with for her encore.
