The Slovak team will be dressed by 4F, the general partner of the Slovak Olympic and Sports Committee (SOŠV), which was inspired by Arctic conditions and Slovak folklore when creating the collection. The press release of SOŠV informs about it.
“We found the main inspiration for the clothes for the Beijing Winter Olympics in the Arctic expedition, which is characterized by glaciers, distant Himalayan tours and extreme weather conditions,” provided the 4F collection, which she also created for the Paralympic expedition of the Slovak Republic for its performance at the ZPH in Beijing in 2022.
Before the Olympians traveled to Mission Beijing in faraway Asia, they decided to test the collection in extreme Tatra conditions. The challenge of the Slovak Olympic and Sports Committee was accepted by skiers Adam and Andreas Žampovci, whose Tatra cable car took them on a sun-drenched but quite freezing Skalnaté pleso.
“We tested the clothes one hundred percent at the Rocky Ball, where the real Tatra wind was blowing. I’m ready for the Beijing Mission.” Adam Žampa stated at an altitude of 1,751 meters, for whom the Beijing Games will be the third in his career. Its performance peaks are so far fifth and sixth place from the supercombination, respectively. slalom from the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi.
Enthusiasm from the collection was not hidden by the younger brothers Andreas Žampa, for whom the Beijing Games are also the third, in which they participate: “The clothing collection is functional and has been tested in extreme conditions, which confirms that we do not have to worry about comfort even in Beijing, where we are facing great frosts. I believe that it will bring us happiness and that all Slovak athletes will achieve the best possible results.”
The clothing color palette for Beijing 2022 is based on natural shades of rocks and sand (beige), clear mountain lakes (dark blue) and fresh mountain air (blue). “Despite the clean forms that we underlined with the matte finish and the colorful textures on the fabrics, we focused on intelligent layering and modular pieces within the collection. Every athlete will be equipped with clothes that can wear layers according to their needs and current weather conditions.” “ complements 4F.
An integral part of the Olympic collection for the Slovak team in Beijing are ornaments with a Tchaikovsky pattern. The delicate floral pattern, the picturesque Slovak village of Čataj, adorns almost every piece of clothing, with the exception of accessories such as knitted mittens and lace.
“I am very glad that we managed to find all the attributes of quality and functional clothing in negative temperatures. I believe that our Olympians will have the same feeling and thanks to the details with the Slovak folk motif, they feel at home and far away in Beijing,” Kristína Czuczová, Marketing Director of SOŠV, commented.
