Salvatore Ferragamo is the next big name to get into the Olympic fashion scene! The Italian fashion house will be designing uniforms for the athletes of the Republic of San Marino, Italy’s independent microstate.
Like Ralph Lauren, who dressed the U.S. Olympic team, Ferragamo's collection will include everything from leisure time clothing, to black tie gala events, and is said to mix sporty functionality with the brand’s signature sartorial allure.
For official ceremonies, Ferragamo creative director Massimiliano Giornetti paired a blue linen blazer, worn over a crepe de chine shirt, with white cotton pants for women, while for men, the designer created a faintly pin-striped suit.
A trench, lightweight down jacket, cashmere sweater, cotton beige pants and poplin button-down shirt, along with a white silk crepe dress with a draped neckline, complete the women’s wardrobe.
Giornetti’s Olympic Men’s wear is equally sophisticated, including a knitted bomber with a detachable nylon vest, a trench matched with a cashmere turtleneck and blue chinos, and a blue blazer paired with beige cotton pants.
You can take a look at the first official sketches from the Salvatore Ferragamo collection for the San Marino Olympic athletes in the gallery. Be sure to look out for when the official pictures from the collection are released, right here on GlobalGrind.
