Not only did Ralph Lauren create the opening and closing ceremony outfits as well as village wear pieces for the US team, but it has now been revealed the Olympic collection will also be available to buy in the US in limited and numbered editions.

The outfits for the opening ceremony draw on the Twenties and Thirties while those for the closing ceremony have a sportier feel.

"Polo Ralph Lauren is a quintessential American brand that represents a timeless and classic look which we believe our athletes will be excited to wear," says Norman Bellingham, US Olympic committee chief operating officer.
