It was entrusted to Giorgio Armani the task of dressing the athletes of the Tokyo Olympics 2021. In this case, the Azzurri paraded today 23 July during the opening ceremony at the National Olympic Stadium in Tokyo. The suit – in recycled shiny tricot polyester, composed of Track Top with open bottom closed on the front, raglan sleeves, raised collar with crater shape with hidden side zip – was made in white, a sign of the purity of sport. In addition, the intro of the national anthem was reported inside the jacket.
A special outfit, therefore, that though seems not to have met the favor of the social public. “They look like the Teletubbies suits,” someone wrote. And again: “They are practically a house painter overalls with a babybel in front hot stamping “. Or: “But it’s an optical white onesie with a tricolor traffic light in the center”. And if the taste is subjective, one thing is certain: the controversy over the uniforms of the Italian national team for European football had brought luck. Will it go like this this time too?
