THE ITALIAN JOB
Italian athletes are being clothed, naturally, by Giorgio Armani. Designed by his EA7 Emporio Armani sportswear label, the collection features 50 pieces of clothing and add- ons. The palette is white and midnight blue, the country’s competitive colours. To add a swatch of patriotic fervour, inside each garment are words from the Italian national anthem. Every Italian athlete will be issued a set of Armani luggage, with an asymmetrically- zipped tracksuit to wear on the podium, warm- up kit, shorts, trousers, shirts, shoes and tees.
