Preppy goes the Olympics

A handful of attractive members of the U.S. Olympic team modeled the new Ralph Lauren designed clothing line for the upcoming Olympics on Tuesday. The photo session in New York provided the first public public peek at the new threads.

In a word: preppy.

In early April, Ralph Lauren Polo announced an agreement to outfit the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams and hinted that they were taking things in a decidedly Polo way. On Tuesday, they offered boxer Deontay Wilder, rower Giuseppe Lanzone (photo above) and Brianna Glenn, a track and field athlete, in the new clothes.

The looks included village wear and an outfit for the closing ceremonies. What the athletes will wear for the opening ceremonies isn’t expected to be unveiled until the day of the event.
