Forget the Lincoln Center — Sochi is where you want to glue your eyes to witness some truly outré fashion. We’ve already passed judgment on Team America’s uniforms designed by Ralph Lauren, who we’re pretty sure is just trolling us at this point, and proved that more is not always more — unless you’re talking about Tonga’s fabulous hyperreal paradise jackets. See below for more weird, wonderful and very patriotic Sochi Winter Olypmics team uniforms.
Germany’s uniforms drew speculation for borrowing from the color palette of the international gay rights symbol. The German Olympic Sports Confederation quickly insisted that the uniforms were “not a protest,” but as fashion people, we love to speculate. Particularly when the alternative is that the jackets are just ugly for no beneficial reason.
Forget the Smurf suits and look at Greece’s gloves — they’re rainbow too! And actual rainbow, not just vomit rainbow. Coincidence or a cry for LGBTQ rights?
