If Stella McCartney designed the uniforms for the Summer 2012 Olympic team (the UK team, that is), Miuccia Prada is lending a style hand to the Italian Olympic sailing team. Prada is sponsoring the boat eventâ€™s wardrobe and Prada logos will be visible on the competitionâ€™s ships.
This is not Miucciaâ€™s first foray into the world of sports as Prada is known for its association with Americaâ€™s sailing Cup. It may have something to do with Patrizio Bertelliâ€™s passion for sailing? (Patrizio is Miucciaâ€™s husband and Prada CEO).
Now for a personal curiosity moment: when it comes to putting together your fit – wardrobe, do you favor designer sportswear or traditional, professional sports attire labels? Iâ€™ve always been in a serious dilemma when it comes to sport shoes & clothing; although Iâ€™d love me some fashionable, designer sneakers (just an example), I tend to choose more traditional sport attire labels (say.. New Balance? Just a random example, again) because Iâ€™m afraid designer products only offer the looks and not the science.
