Our Olympic Inspired Fashion Board on Pinterest
So, at Keep Fronting it seems after an eternal build up, we are finally running out of Olympic steam. Good thing the Paralympics are just around the corner! But before we get back to the important matter of the fashion that you and we both love, we would like to share with you a collection of images and fashion pieces that we were collecting over on Pinterest.
It is probably one of our least structured boards to date but that is entirely intentional as it is supposed to be our Olympic mood board with overall feeling of the connection between the Olympics and fashion. Below we highlight some of the most popular pins from that board.
Note: the image below may take a moment to load depending on your connection as it is 1.2mb approximately.
Details Magazine Review from Man Of The Hour
Man Of The Hour website write a review of the August 2012 issue of Details Magazine but dislike the cover used. We can understand that it might not be to everyone’s liking but it did contain the most decorated Olympian at all time so for that alone, we feel like it was a good choice!
Limited Edition Australian Olympic Team Volley Trainers as seen on Sneaker Freaker
These canvas trainers were exactly the sort of item we had in mind when we started this board. It’s a well-designed product anyway with enough Olympic detail to get into the spirit of the games but not too much to make it unfashionable when the games are over. Good work finding these, Sneaker Freaker!
80’s Olympic sweater as seen on 80’s Touch Tumblr
It’s the most obvious thing to say that since this image was found on a blog about the 80’s is that it sums up the era very well. But our second observation would be to ask if this sweater was more in honour of the Winter Olympics than the Summer Olympic Games?
Master-Piece sail back pack as seen on Freshness
There were many Team USA items on our Olympic inspired board, which is completely understandable due to our growing fan base in the States. Including this backpack on our Olympic Inspired Fashion board was more of a nod to the Team USA and to a lesser degree, the Team GB colours used rather than any official Olympic tie-in.
Adidas Originals Team GB 398 T-Shirt from Size.co.uk
If we have earlier had an example of Eighties Olympic fashion, here is probably an example from the Seventies. It is probably not actually an example of the fashion either; it’s more an example of the track attire. The retro nature of the t-shirt and the authentic athlete numbering style is a great touch.
Our overriding feeling one-week on from the Olympic closing ceremony is we thank you for allowing us to share our Olympic memories with you and we are missing it already! Hopefully you have enjoyed it as much as we have and if there are any Olympic inspired products or imagery that you would like to share us, we would like to hear from you.
