After all the fun with the Bra Series last week... I caught a cold. Wretched little virus. So while I'm battling it, I'm also enjoying the Olympics. Since I have trouble being witty with a runny nose, I thought I'd at least highlight some of the Olympic fashion we've been seeing. I couldn't find a good shot of the Japanese speed skating uniforms. They are very cool! Make me think of the Body Worlds exhibit.
Did you know it was actually 72 degrees in the arena? I think the Bermudan's were the only ones who got that memo. You may have noticed lots of shed coats once the athletes were seated.
Azerbaijan had some great pants. I love anything remotely paisley.
Czech Republic also had fun pants. Very 80's influenced. I had a painters cap with a similar print. Remember those?
This is what Ralph Lauren designed for the USA Snowboarding team. The "jeans" are actually Gore Tex. How cool is that? Plaid is very popular right now and I love the combo. Snowboarding is at its roots a casual sport with a rebel edge and I think the jeans reflect that perfectly.
And then there are the Norwegian Curlers and their argyle pants. Apparently the standard uniform for curling is black pants and solid shirts. That the Norwegian's just turned that tradition on its ear is the understatement of the year. Let's face it, curling isn't exactly the hippest sport at the Olympics. But it just got a whole lot more fun to watch! I'm going to definitely have to check out these pants furiously sweeping their way down the ice.
