Kate and Laura Mulleavy,
the designing sisters behind the ethereal Rodarte line, usually get press for dressing trendsetters such as Keira Knightley, Kristen Dunst, Milla Jovovich, Emma Watson
and Natalie Portman
But the designers accepted a challenge from the New York Times Sunday magazine to design activewear for 13 Olympic athletes competing in Vancouver for an upcoming photo spread in the NYT’s Sunday magazine.
According to WWD, Johnny Weir
was shot mid-spin in a colorful crocheted jumpsuit (left).
We might consider taking up snowboarding or skiing if we could wear cool Rodarte duds.
]]>Other models include figure skater Evan Lysacek, Rachael Flatt, and pairs skaters Keauna McLaughlin and Rockne Brubaker; freestyle skiers Jeret “Speedy” Peterson, Hannah Kearney and Emily Cook; snowboarders Hannah Teter and Kelly Clark, and ski jumper Anders Johnson.
Think Rodarte Sport!
