For the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Adidas by Stella McCartney stepped up to its much-lauded reputation, creating the kit for Team GB – a first for a fashion label. Since its creation in 2005, the British designer and sportswear super-brand have succeeded in designing what has now become one of the most highly anticipated collaborations each season. Believing that style doesn’t need to be compromised for sport, the label’s cooler-than-cool hooded cagoules and rain jackets are designed to void the elements, whether you’re on the beach, in the studio, or making the morning commute to your office in the city; these lightweight pieces dry quickly and can be easily stored in a handbag or backpack. Acute attention to detail, like small zipped pockets made for your locker keys or iPod, and drawstring hems that allow you to adjust your fit to every session, ensure you’re well-equipped whatever the weather.
