Mithio´s first project was to design and produce the official representative clothing set for the Latvian Olympic Team for the Vancouver Olympics in 2010. It was a big subscription of a 130-member Olympic team.
Latvian Olympic Committee as a client, was extremely conscious and demanding about the representative clothing, about the quality and as well as technical solutions – the basic vision, quality, materials and colors. The goal was to create a unique and original clothes for the Latvian Olympic team, and differentiate themselves from the mass production by emphasizing the Latvian national diversity, colors and national motifs.
Concept and strategy
As previously mentioned, the task was to create unique and original clothes for the Latvian Olympic team, emphasizing in particular the Latvian national diversity and national motifs. The entire set of clothing was designed and made under Mithio´s brand. During the work we combined various national elements, used several of them in a combination with geometric elements on the modern high-tech fabrics.
Olympic Collection consisted of nine garments: long coat with wadding, wadded ski jacket and trousers, casual trousers, knitted sweater and a long zip cardigan, knitted scarf, a hat and ski gloves. Coats, jacket and trousers are manufactured with seam-sealing technology. On the internal and external sides of the trousers, we have used the printed decorative elements.
