OLYMPIC SPORT: Have Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy set their eyes on activewear? Not quite, but The New York Times Magazine recently turned to the ethereal sisters to wardrobe several U.S. athletes participating in the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, which begin Feb. 12. The Ryan McGinley portfolio, due out in the magazine this Sunday, features 13 Olympians training in custom-made Rodarte knit garments, including figure skater Johnny Weir in mid-axel sporting a full crochet knit jumpsuit. Other Olympians in the story, which McGinley shot on location during training sessions across the U.S., 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.

“It was quite different for each athlete and each sport,” the designers said through their spokesman, Brian Phillips, via e-mail. “We built the looks knowing that the athletes needed to be able to keep the same range of motion in our clothing as they have in their normal uniform.” — Marc Karimzadeh
