RIVERISLANDGB2012.jpgAs time draws closer to the London 2012 Games, the sporting event of the year looks set to be more fashionable than ever before! Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few months, you'll have already seen us banging on about Adidas revealing the British Team Kit designed by Stella McCartney, you might know that Prada are sponsoring the Italian national sailing team, and you'll definitely have seen Kate Moss on the cover of Vogue's sporting special issue, but did you hear that the a certain high street retailer is also getting involved in the celebrations?

Yes that's right, according to Vogue.com, River Island have collaborated with official sportswear partner of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games, Adidas! The high street favourite will be bringing you (and your boyfriend/brother/dad) a multitude of patriotic coloured sportswear, as well as more fashion orientated pieces like cropped vests featuring metallic detailing (starting at just £16) Union Jack printed hoodies, and body-con style dresses with lion motifs. The collection will arrive in stores and online on May 20th, but if you can't wait until then, they do have some team GB themed accessories, including this cute Links of London braided bracelet for £20.
