While designers left and right have designed uniforms for their respective countries’ Olympic delegates, one Italian label embraced the public’s frenzied Olympic fixation to churn out a special collection indirectly paying homage to the world’s most prestigious sporting competition. Although Miu Miu didn’t directly reference the Olympic Games, they actually didn’t need to tell the eager fashion public for the new collection eerily—albeit discreetly—drew inspiration from the upcoming Summer Olympic Games.
Dubbed as the London Special Edition, the new collection offers Bauletto bags, sandals, heels and other accessories dressed in shades of gold, silver and bronze. Clearly a celebration of the precious Olympic medals athletes are eager to nab, these pieces will sadly only be available in select Miu Miu stores in London. As if the color palette wasn’t too much of a giveaway, the collection will be made available starting July 27, the same day as the London Olympics’ opening ceremony.
