Kind of freaking out about this post today, guys. Sochi 2014 is just around the corner and as you may have seen on The Today Show this morning, Ralph Lauren unveiled the official Team USA Opening Ceremony Parade uniforms.
For the first time 100 percent of the purchase price of the Limited Edition Team USA Opening Ceremony Cardigan will be donated to the U.S. Olympic Committee, an organization supporting our nation’s best and brightest.
The uniform features a meticulously knit patchwork cardigan highlighted with artisan details and emblazoned with stars and spirited graphics. The variety of special touches mirror the many hands across the country from more than 40 vendors that helped Ralph Lauren produce its entire Team USA wardrobe to be produced in the United States. The sweater is a “patchwork” in the true sense of the word to make a collage that represents the American athletes who each have their own unique story to tell.
The Opening Ceremony Cardigan will be paired with a cream-colored cotton turtleneck sweater, slim-fitting white fleece athletic pants, sporty black leather boots with red laces and a cotton belt accented with jacquard tape featuring patriotic graphics.
I just about died when the team at RL sent me this absolutely fabulous all-American cardigan. I’ve always been a sucker for anything to show off my USA pride and this sweater fits the bill perfectly. It’s unbelievably warm and truly is a work of art… It’s one of those pieces I know I’ll have forever!
