The American uniforms for the Tokyo Olympics closing ceremonies have been unveiled.
American designer Ralph Lauren created the line for Team USA, featuring white jackets with blue collars and hoods. The jackets have an American flag patch on the arm, the United States Olympic logo on the right breast and Ralph Lauren‘s logo on the left breast. Ralph Lauren has been responsible for outfitting Team USA’s opening and closing ceremony looks since the 2008 Beijing Olympics over a decade ago.
“As we come together to celebrate and compete, we must also embrace our responsibility to protect the planet we all call home,” said David Lauren, Chief Innovation and Branding Officer and Vice Chairman of the Board at the brand.
“As part of this, we are proud to continue to invest in and scale sustainability innovations — dressing our nation’s best and brightest athletes in timeless clothing that has been consciously created.”
