We might have Stella McCartney dressing team GB for the 2012 Olympics, but we're not the only nation to bag a big name designer. Prada has confirmed that it is designing the Olympics and Paralympics kit for the Italian sailing team.

Speaking about the collaboration, the president of the Italian sailing federation said, "We are extremely proud to have Prada as a sponsor. The Prada brand is not just a flagship of Italy
worldwide, but it has always been very closely connected to our sport and has nearly
become synonymous with major sailing challenges".

So will the blue-heavy outfits make them the most stylish sailors on the water? Probably, and the rest of Italy's competitors won't exactly be missing out on the style front either -
