Ralph Lauren has unveiled its official Olympic ceremony uniforms – and, boy, are they preppy.

The Ralph Lauren-designed 2012 London Olympic Games uniforms are based around a strong navy and white colour palette with hints of red, and will be worn by the American team during the formal opening and closing ceremony parades.

As expected from a brand that took the US country club look and turned it into an eternally referenced All-American fashion trend, the Olympic uniforms feature preppy navy blazers worn with white trousers for the men and knee-length white skirts for the women, all accessorised with jaunty berets and patriotic ties or scarves.

As Stella McCartney’s Team GB kit was met with criticism from some members of the British public, we’ll be looking forward to hearing the reaction of American citizens to Ralph Lauren’s Olympic efforts.
