“I hope everyone likes clothes,” said the president of the COE, Alejandro Blanco, at the presentation of the official kit of the Spanish delegation at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. And it is that the clothing of the Olympians always generates multitude of comments, not always good.
On this occasion, the clothes that Spanish athletes will wear in the opening and closing ceremonies, in the awards ceremonies and during their walks through the Olympic Village are made by the Joma brand.
The great novelty of this kit are the jackets that the athletes will wear at the opening ceremony. These garments that male and female athletes will use will be made with 100% recycled materials, the sports firm explained in a statement.
The costumes were presented at the beginning of June in a parade that took place at the headquarters of the Spanish Olympic Committee. “It is an honor that Joma visits the Spanish Olympic Committee,” said Blanco.
On the other hand, the general director of Joma, Alberto López acknowledged that “it is an exclusive collection of footwear, clothing and accessories that arrives after many months of waiting, sacrifice, work and uncertainty. We have achieved it and it will be a starting signal for some good games. ”
A suit between formal and sporty for flag bearers
The flag bearers of the Spanish Olympic delegation at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the paddler Saúl Craviotto and the swimmer Mireia Belmonte, will lead an inaugural parade in which the athletes will wear recycled material suits with a ‘look’ between formal and sporty.
The “jewel of the collection”, also from the Joma brand, are suits for the inaugural show whose design master line is the “combination of a formal style with a sporty touch”.
The male athletes, led by Saúl Craviotto, vStretch white jacket, with classic cut and mandarin collar, combined with polo shirt in cotton pique fabric, also with mandarin collar. The pants are designed in a slim-fit chino cut with classic pockets.
On the jacket is embroidered the logo of the Spanish Olympic Committee, in fabric application, and a discreet complement with the Joma logo.
As for the athletes, flagged and led by Mireia Belmonte, the bet is the combination of jacket and dress. The jacket is also made of recycled materials and follows a semi-fitted cut and long at the waist..
It has a round neck without lapels, French sleeves with side slits and a front lining. As in the men’s jacket, the logo of the Spanish Olympic Committee is embroidered in fabric application.
For the dress, the roma knit fabric has been used, which creates a very fluid and comfortable garment. The cut is semi-tailored and is adjusted to the waist with a belt in the same fabric and in a color tone. The ‘look’ is completed with a mobile phone bag in navy colored synthetic leather with the COE coat of arms.
