Pole vaults. Jump shots. Spins. Spikes. Dives. Flips. And fashion. The Summer Olympics have been billed as the most fashionable ever. Giorgio Armani, Prada, Stella McCartney, Hermes, and Ralph Lauren all have looks debuting in London during the games. And not to be undone, Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld has a line of t-shirts (“Team Karl”) being sold in London’s Selfridges’ department store. Opening Ceremony has a pop-up store in Covent Garden.
And as if all this wasn’t enough, we can look forward to a Spice Girls reunion at the closing ceremonies on August 12 — with Victoria Beckham herself. Sporty style indeed.
About Cindy Wall
Cindy’s a communications and marketing pro, a writer, a grammar snob, and a rapacious reader. In her own words, she knows “a little about a lot”—i.e., 19th century literature, Karl Lagerfeld’s latest adventures, professional bike racing, and when to use the Oxford comma. She’s a fan of indie film and music, and bullish on local eating and shopping. And she’s recently re-reved her blog, Paris State of Mind, where she writes about all things French.
