Stella McCartney is designing the Rio 2016 kit

Adidas + Stella +Team GB = major Olympic excitement


The 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio are now just one year away, which means we can fully embrace our Team GB obsession once again. And we now know that the athletes we support will not only be supremely talented but also nattily dressed.


Adidas has announced this morning that, following on from her success at London 2012, Stella McCartney will once again be Creative Director, designing the kits for every single British sportsman and woman taking part. She's already done most of the hard work - she was comissioned back in April 2014 - and her new high-tech, cutting-edge pieces will be unveiled in April 2016.


Not only is McCartney herself thrilled to get the gig again, the athletes in question are already excited and Tweeting their support.

#TBT to 2012, excited that in a year’s time Team GB will be in @stellamccartney @adidasuk kit! #Rio2016
