I am Olympics junkie. Hands down. I stay up way too late watching trials, qualifying heats, medal ceremonies and back stories on athletes.

I love the anticipation of the Opening Ceremonies and wondering who will be holding the American flag? how will the torch be lit? and most importantly...what will Team USA be wearing?!?!

Not being good at surprises, I had to at least do a little sneak peek and see who is designing for the athletes...and a few are my all-times faves!

 

Team USA {Ralph Lauren}

Ralph Lauren London 2012 Announcement highresbrnd.

Mr. Lauren exudes Americana and is undoubtedly a perfect choice - classic, a bit preppy with a bit of a sporty edge. L.O.V.E.

 

Team Great Britain {Stella McCartney + Adidas}

I love the contemporary and modern feel to the Union Jack flag. Sporty Spice would thinks this represents. Brill!

 

Team Italy {Giorgio Armani}

Armani is hoping to have won gold with his designs as he included the words to the national anthem of Italy on the inside of the opening ceremony jacket. Figgata! 

 

Team Jamaica {Cedalla Marley + Puma}

Not only may Team Jamaica have the world's fastest man in Usain Bolt, the designs of Cedalla Marely, daughter of Bob Marley, may prove the most interesting. The meshing of the Jamaican flag and likeness of the jungle canopy found on their island proves fashion forward and sporty.

 

 Team Canada {The Hudson Bay Company}

With a team of designers at The Hudson Bay Company including Chantel Burton, the Canadian uniforms are quietly confident and represent the great outdoors and summer north of the border.

 

Team Australia {Sportscraft + Volley}

Australian athletes actually collaborated with the designers at Sportscraft and Volley on the classic yet modern uniforms in the retro green and gold. The shoes by Volley are all the rage and getting a major thumbs up from the Aussies.

 

The influence of fashion on the 2012 London Olympics is amazing. Opening Ceremonies uniforms were even unveiled this year at some of the  Mercede Benz Fashion Weeks all around the world?!!?

With this many people center stage from all over the world, you can't find a better place for inspiration on many levels - hard work, patriotism, dreams, drama, entertainment, flags and personality. Set your DVRs if you have to because you really won't want to miss this!

Cheers!
