On Our Radar: Designers Tackle the Olympics

Just because fashion designers don't play competitive sports doesn't mean they can't take part in the 2008 Olympics. Au contraire, mon frère. Hong Kong-based retailer Lane Crawford has enlisted the help of 12 of the world's most famous names — Ricardo Tisci, Burberry (left), Phillip Lim, and Stella McCartney, to name a few — for "The Collective: Synergy in Fashion." The looks will be showcased at several events throughout the Olympic season in Beijing this Summer. After August, all of the one-of-a-kind garments will be auctioned, with 100 percent of proceeds benefiting UNICEF's Driving Dreams project. I've never been the athletic type, but this is dope.

Well, they're interesting, anyway. Hardly functional, though. I guess that isn't the point. It would be so awesome if athletics and fashion could actually merge into something that was usable and fabulous.
