Giorgio Armani designs Italy’s 2012 Olympic athletes

It’s been unveiled that Giorgio Armani will design uniforms for Italy’s 2012 Olympic athletes, and we reckon he’ll be up against some pretty stiff competition from our very own Stella McCartney for team GB.

Apparently, earlier this week, the Italian Olympic Committee announced that Armani will design sportswear for its competitors at the 2012 games in London, making it a first for the fashion designer in tackling sportswear design – should be interesting, eh?

However, Giorgio does own a stake in the Olimpia Milano basketball team, so it would seem the man has a passion for sport, not just fashion.

More details of the project will be revealed in a conference next week, reports SkyShowbiz.

No doubt we’ll keep you posted
