Ralph Lauren tailors The USA Olympic team 4 Vancouver Games
Designer Ralph Lauren’s love of all things American is extending to Team USA once again.
When about 150 athletes walk in the opening ceremony of the 21st Winter Olympic Games Feb. 12 in Vancouver, they’ll wear navy puffer jackets, winter-white tapered pants and Fair Isle knit hats from the Polo Ralph Lauren Olympic collection, which is inspired by the 1932 Lake Placid Games.
“We always look back to study history as we create our designs and are always inspired by the classics,” says David Lauren, one of the designer’s sons and Polo’s senior vice president of advertising, marketing and corporate communications.
