The notorious eco designer was recently named creative director for the British Olympic Team. What exactly does that mean? Basically, Stella will be arranging all the gear for the athletes and also designing the fan wear.
Maybe we’re not making a big enough deal about this, because this is huge stuff! McCartney is the very first designer (EVER!) to be responsible for the athletic attire of an entire team — a feat Stella calls “an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
No word yet on her plans, however The Guardian recently made some predictions:
“Clues, however, might lurk in the previous creations of McCartney, who is known for her mannish tailoring, jumpsuits and light-as-air blouses – and her staunch refusal as a vegetarian to use animal products in her designs. If her Olympic designs are consistent, then Team GB should expect pared back minimal designs with simple discreet detailing.”
Here at the Razz, we’re all super excited by this news and can’t wait to see what she creates. Go, go, Stella!
