Olympic Games 2016: Stella McCartney To Reprise Role As Designer Of Team GB Kits

The Olympic Games 2016 in Rio de Janeiro may still be over a year away, but we've just heard some very exciting news...

Stella McCartney will return once again as Team GB's new creative director and we can't wait to see the kit she designs.

Her debut collection for the team in 2012 caused a fashion frenzy, with replica kits completely selling out - making it the most successful Olympic range of all time.

In a press release McCartney said: "I am thrilled to be back with Adidas as creative director for Team GB for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. It is a great honour to work with our great athletes again to make them proud with the designs we are creating for them."

Gold medalist Jessica Ennis-Hill added: "It is fantastic that Stella is back working with Adidas. I am looking forward to seeing the new designs made up and hopefully I will get to wear them and be part of another incredible Olympics in 2016."

Go Team GB!
