STELLA’S OLYMPIC TEAM: Stella McCartney is collaborating with Adidas again, this time for the 2012 Summer Olympics. Adidas, the official sportswear partner of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, has selected McCartney as creative director for the uniforms that British athletes will wear. An announcement from Adidas is expected today. McCartney designs the Adidas by Stella McCartney line of women’s athletic clothing, and most recently dressed tennis star Caroline Wozniacki for Wimbledon. An Adidas spokeswoman said the new partnership between McCartney and the brand would run from now until the 2012 Olympics, and would feature four separate collections. The first will bow in September, will be a men’s and women’s lifestyle collection “inspired by Team GB” and will be aimed at nonathletes and fans. It will be sold at Adidas stores in the U.K. The final collection will comprise the uniforms for the British team. “As a British fashion designer, it is an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be creative director of Team GB as the hosting nation of the London 2012 Olympic Games,” said McCartney.
