In the next few weeks we'll be seeing a lot of Stella McCartney's Olympic and Paralympic Team GB "kit," as the Brit's call it. Writing for Selvedge, Kate Cavendish takes an in-depth look at the design in the magazine's new mid-summer issue. I'm taking a second to mention it because the whole issue is well-worth a read.

From English saddles and sails to riding habits and American swimsuits, the editors explore textiles and craft behind the Games.
