Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony Is 9 Days Away — Here’s What Team USA Will Be Wearing

Ralph Lauren created functional and fresh outfits for Team USA athletes at the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics closing ceremonies, and they’ve done the same for both opening ceremony parades happening in a little over a week’s time and a month’s time respectively (can you believe it?!). The coolest (no pun intended) part about these uniforms is the battery-powered device with RL Cooling technology in the back of the flag bearer’s white denim jacket — and athletes will be receiving identical cooling devices after the opening ceremony parades to attach to their navy blazers. This technology is not to be confused with the heated jacket from 2018 Winter Games.

The cooling technology “fuses fashion and function,” David Lauren, Ralph Lauren’s chief branding and innovation officer and vice chairman of the board, stated in a press release. “When you’re at the opening ceremonies, you’re there for 4, 5, 6 hours, and in Japan, that’s going to be very hot and humid,” said BMX racer and Olympic gold medalist Connor Fields on the Today Show on July 14, calling the device a “little air-conditioner.”

Aside from the aforementioned blazers, the “classic all-American” Team USA opening ceremony outfits include a striped T-shirt; a flag-inspired printed scarf; a striped Repreve recycled polyester belt; denim pants with a patch made from an innovative leather alternative called Mirum; a cotton mask, and a pair of red, white, and blue shoes. Like the closing ceremony fits, these clothes incorporate sustainable materials. Get a first look at the uniforms on Olympic and Paralympic contenders ahead as we ramp up for the highly-anticipated Tokyo Games.
