PARIS: A dozen French Olympic athletes took to the catwalk on day one of Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (Jan 16) to parade their Stephane Ashpool-designed kit for this year’s Olympics.
The kit, unveiled at the headquarters of the French Olympic Committee, included the athletes village uniform, featuring a 1990s vibe, as well as the training and competition outfits that will be provided by French brand Le Coq Sportif.
“It was a two-year project,” Ashpool said.
“The outfit is a blend between the blue, the white and the red. The athletes told me they wanted to be chic, elegant, bright. The result is these blended colours.”
The Paris Olympics will be held from Jul 26 to Aug 11.
