The London 2012 Olympics started a week ago and looks from the looks of things it is the most stylish sporting event in history - with designers from all over the world showing their support for their respective countries.
Fashion designer Stella McCartney was the first internationally-renowned name to get into the Olympic spirit, announcing that she was designing the Team GB kit in July 2010 and unveiling the collection in full in March this year.
Other labels to back their countries by creating their sports kits include Prada, who has designed kits for the Italian national sailing team; Ralph Lauren who has created the kits for the US, Giorgio Armani who has designed kits for the Italian National Olympic Team and Hermès who has created kits for the French Olympic equestrian team.
Well, back home in Nigeria, our representatives at the Olympics did not get a sporting kit makeover by any of our designers, however the rest of us fashion lovers don’t have to be at the Olympics to get our game on!!It’s time we all shine in bright sporty colours!
Electric Blue- Instead of going for a sports wrist-watch you can channel your sporty vibe into a blue dress with the grace of a royal.
Bright Yellow- Pop it like it’s hot in Olympics yellow when you sport either a bright yellow dress, a chic beret or a tote handbag by Nichole by Haguaana and stay loyal to the Olympics spirit.
Faithful Black Sandals- To celebrate your favourite team or athletes, plant your feet in a nice and comfortable pair of heels for a night out.
Bold Green- This intricately hand beaded dark green necklace says it without you saying it – Go team Naija!
Red Lips- Screaming ‘Go for the gold!’ while blowing kisses to our Olympic hopefuls will definitely sound better coming from luscious red lips. *Mwah*
