London Olympics 2012 Fashion (The Best & The Worst)

27 Jul

Fashion runs through many threads of our culture. Today the world’s greatest athletes graced the largest competitive stage at the 2012 London Olympics. Their talents and successes will be the main focus over the next two week. However we can’t forget about those snazzy uniforms. For years Fashion Designers have been tapped to design their perspective country’s uniforms. This 2012 Olympics run had some highs and very very lows in regards to Designer uniforms. Here are my picks for the worst and best uniforms for the London Olympic 2012. I’m still scratching my head at the uniforms for Spain. What in the mess?

The Best

U.S.A Ralph Lauren

U.S.A Nike

GREAT BRITAIN Stella McCartney for Adidas 

JAMAICA Cedella Marley for Puma

South Korea Fila

ITALY Giorgio Armani & Prada

The Worst

SPAIN Bosco

No this is not a joke! One does have to wonder if Russian Designer (Bosco) was trying to play a joke by designing these crazy uniforms. I had to double-check my sources, just to confirm that these are indeed the official uniforms for Spain. Why didn’t Spain utilize one of their own talented designers? Surely Balenciaga would have been a more appropriate choice. These poor athletes. They look like they’re rocking a McDonald’s uniform along with a Dora the Explorer backpack. Not cute!

RUSSIA Bosco Sport
