SPORTING TRADITION: Azerbaijan’s national team athletes will sport Ermanno Scervino at the Baku 2015 European Games this month.
The Italian fashion label and National Olympic Committee of Azerbaijan had announced the renewal of their partnership in May. Ermanno Scervino previously created the country’s team sports uniform for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Azerbaijan athletes’ formal uniform for Baku includes skirts and trousers in gray stretch satin, and white stretch poplin shirts and jackets in cornflower blue, made of Milano knit stretch jersey.
The women’s slim-fit blazer gives a nod to Azerbaijan’s rich carpet history with a printed patchwork motif, and it has on it the word “Baku.” The men’s jacket features gold-colored buttons with the country’s pomegranate symbol. Other elements of the formal uniforms — such as silk ties and scarves, pocket handkerchiefs, moccasins and loafers — also have the patchwork print.
The team athletic uniforms include white T-shirts in stretch jersey with a gold laminated effect, plus tracksuits in red and white or in red, orange and white.
Ermanno Scervino is no stranger to Baku, having opened its first boutique in the city’s Four Seasons Hotel in November 2013.
