at the opening ceremonies, asian inspiration


Best in show: The Swedes used their flag’s blue and yellow palette on a mandarin collar dress worn as a top over white pants. LOVE IT. Bonus points for the paper fan.

The men wore a similar color scheme under a blue jacket.

The French women failed at their attempt to fuse Asian and French fashion with their uniforms. (but they did so well with Vietnamese cuisine!). In this case the sashes and berets do not mix. Thankfully, the men tempered this with a classic blazer-and-skinny-pants outfit.

The Hudson Bay Company clothed the Canadian athletes in a Chinese-inspired red/white graphic polo with matching messenger bags.
