This is the 2021/22 team jacket for the Norwegian Alpine Ski Team. The jacket takes its design cues from our official Olympic sweater for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. The star pattern originates from the classic Norwegian eight-petal rose. The form is sharpened and crystallized, inspired by Chinese paper folding (called zhezhi) and Asian cartoons.
The OL Spirit jacket is made of 100% skin soft merino wool, in a durable double-knit construction – ideal for an active lifestyle. The jacket features a two-way zipper in front, padded flag colored stripes on the shoulders and elbow padding – hints to alpine sweaters from the 70s. Padded letters spelling “Norway” are knitted discretely into the back, only revealed when the light casts shadows.
This jacket is part of our extensive OL Spirit collection, which consists of basic, mid- and outer-layer garments, as well as accessories. (OL stands for Olympic Games in Norwegian: “Olympiske Leker”).
This is the 2021/22 team jacket for the Norwegian Alpine Ski Team. The jacket takes its design cues from our official Olympic sweater for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. With a two-way zipper in front, the star pattern is moved over to the sleeves. The pattern originates from the classic Norwegian eight-petal rose. Here, the form is sharpened and crystallized, inspired by Chinese paper folding (called zhezhi) and Asian cartoons.
From this pattern padded flag colored stripes rises to meet the neck. Those fondly remembering the 70s will recognize the padded elements known from the alpine sweaters worn in competitions. The padding provides a 3D effect being both futuristic and retro at the same time.
An extra detail is the horizontal elbow padding, it doesn’t get any more 70s than this.
We love to play with hidden details. Discretely knitted into the back, in the same color as the rest of the back, you’ll find padded letters spelling “Norway”. Being without contrasting colors, the three-dimensional text only reveals itself in the play of lights and shadows.
The OL Spirit jacket is made of 100% skin soft merino wool. It features a durable double-knit construction which makes it ideal for an active lifestyle.
In addition, we have designed a unique OL Spirit collection, all designed to match the official Olympic sweater. The collection consists of basic sweaters, leggings, pants, mid layer jackets, outer jackets and- vests, socks, hats, headbands and a buff. OL Spirit from top to toe, from innermost to outermost, if you like.
(And for the record: In Norwegian “OL” is short for “Olympiske Leker”, known as the Olympic Games in English).
