David Lauren, executive VP of Ralph Lauren, revealed the U.S. Olympic uniforms for the London Games this morning on NBC’s Today Show.
“It’s a privilege to play a part in the London Games and to celebrate the achievements of these premier athletes as they represent our nation on the world’s biggest stage,” Lauren said.
The team unveiled buttoned-up, refined uniforms designed by Ralph Lauren for the opening ceremony at the London Olympics.
Men will wear navy blue blazers with the Olympic team patch, along with a red and navy tie, and cream-colored flat-front pants. Women will pair the blazers with scarves with red, white and blue stripes, and a knee-length cream-colored skirt.
All the team members will top off their uniforms with navy berets highlighted with red and white stripes.
Ralph Lauren also is dressing the Olympic and Paralympic teams for the closing ceremony and providing casual clothes to be worn around the Olympic Village. Nike has created many of the competition uniforms for the U.S. and outfits for the medal stand.
