Stella McCartney has been appointed creative director of Adidas's 2012 Olympic Team GB ranges. The A-list designer of choice will create the label's athlete kit for both the national Olympic and Paralympic teams.
‘As a British fashion designer it is an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be creative director of Team GB as the hosting nation of the London 2012 Olympic Games,’ Stella said.
Having designed a sports-inspired performance collection for the brand Adidas by Stella McCartney since 2005, Stella will also create a fan wear range that will be available this autumn.
‘Adidas is bringing together the best British athletes performing at the Olympic and Paralympic Games with the best British designer and we are thrilled to have someone of Stella's stature working with us in the run up to London 2012,’ said Adidas marketing director Nick Craggs.
How could we not win with Stella on our side?
