Gold Medal Gear

You may be as adept on the sportsfield as Ryan Lochte is at sticking to the facts, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look the part of a champion. Whether gym bunny or armchair sports fan, we’ve got the activewear to keep you ahead of the pack till Tokyo, 2020.

Sport: Surfing
Kit: Surfboard by Philippe Barland for Chanel

Surfing is set to debut at the 2020 games, so whether you’re frolicking in the froth or hanging in the green room, there’s no more important accessory than a killer stick. For the win: only a carbon fibre, polyurethane and fibreglass Chanel surfboard, designed and produced in conjunction with renowned French shaper, Philippe Barland.

Sport: Track and Field
Kit: Run suit by Adidas by Stella McCartney

Arguably the queen of high-fash sportswear collabs – not to mention Team GB’s Creative Director – Stella McCartney is a default finalist when it comes to raising heart rates. For the win: her adidas by Stella high-vis, zip-down front run jacket with matching 2-in-1 shorts fashioned from Clima-lite tech fabric in metallic gold.

Sport: Basketball
Kit: Hermès basketball

Traditionally more a horsey type, purse purveyor Hermès may have begun life in the bridle, harness and saddle game, but today they’ve gone full baller. For the win: their petroleum blue, bull calfskin basketball replete with an iconic handstitched monogram, made-to-order from the Paris atelier. Swish!

Sport: Gymnastics
Kit: Custom leotard

Budding Biles or simply a spangly lycra lover? Either way, GK Elite has the haute all-in-one to get you on that podium. For the win: Swarovski-encrusted up custom leotard with up to 15,000 dazzling crystals. Stick it.
