EA7 Emporio Armani will be the official outfitter of the 2018 Italian Olympic and Paralympic teams for the Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. This is the third time the brand has been the official outfitter of the Italian team including in London in 2012, Sochi in 2015, and Rio in 2016.
The athletes will wear EA7 sportswear that will be delivered to them in a modular wardrobe kit, which will include a technical-fabric ski tracksuit and mantle, a long down coat, a polo fleece shirt, a blue and white t-shirt with tricolor pattern, a sweater, cotton trousers, and a cotton layering set. The look will be accessorized with gloves, a hat, a scarf, waterproof shoes with anti-slip grip, a luggage trolley, a gym bag, a boot backpack and a messenger bag.
The outfits come in signature midnight blue with color accents mimicking the colors of the Italian flag as well as the EA7 logo. Inside the jackets, the first verse of the Italian national anthem is printed in gold script. Polo shirts got the same treatment in script just beneath the collar printed on blue webbing.
Ralph Lauren will once again be the official outfitter for the American team.
