When Ralph Lauren the Polo Designer Joined Team USA at the Olympics | Fashion Behind


Great designers like Armani, Ralph Lauren,
and Christian Louboutin have had the opportunity
to show their designs in the Parade of Nations
of the Olympic Games. Now, meet the rebel
behind the brand. On today’s Fashion Icon: Ralph Lauren. Since 2008, Ralph Lauren
has been named the official outfitter
of Team USA. And that’s something big,
even for him. From that moment, Ralph
has been dressing the national Olympic team
for the Olympic Games of Beijing, Vancouver, London,
Sochi and Rio. Ralph Lauren’s partnership
with Team USA marks an enormous shift
in the Olympic sportswear. Maybe one of the biggest years
for fashion and the Olympics was the 2012
London Olympic Games. At this time, Ralph made
a classic, elegant look. This was his third
collaboration with Team USA. Men in double-breasted blazers, and women with
fitted navy blazers, knee-length
and cream silk skirts. And he nailed it. Then came
the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. This time, the American outfit
consisted of a navy blazer with a striped T-shirt
and white jeans with the classic,
all-American palette of red, white and blue. Designing for the Olympics
is the biggest challenge a designer can face. They should be able to make
something memorable, but also that represents the
heart and soul of a country. And not any country.
