Rodarte designs ethereal activewear for Olympic athletes

rodarte-olympics.jpg Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the designing sisters behind the ethereal Rodarte line, usually get press for dressing trendsetters such as  Keira Knightley, Kristen Dunst, Milla Jovovich, Emma Watson and Natalie Portman.

But the designers accepted a challenge from the New York Times Sunday magazine to design activewear for 13 Olympic athletes competing in Vancouver for an upcoming photo spread in the NYT's Sunday magazine.

According to WWD, Johnny Weir was shot mid-spin in a colorful crocheted jumpsuit (left).

We might consider taking up snowboarding or skiing if we could wear cool Rodarte duds.
