PROJECT: Latvian Olympic Team Collection for RIO 2016
The Rio 2016 collection strikes a balance between national colours and symbols, and their modern interpretation that is both simple and trendy. Designing started by reviewing archive imagery showing Latvian athletes from past Olympic Games, dating as far as 1936. This was the foundation for a collection that proudly bears the traditional Latvian braid, symbolising Olympic strength and unity, presented against national colours, with a strong presence of carmine red, whites and dark grey.
The Rio 2016 Olympic Collection includes 150 sets for athletes, coaches and the Olympic team, with each set containing 30 items of clothing, 5 pairs of shoes and 18 items of accessories.
