Belgium athletes for the London 2012 Olympic Games will be dressed by the designer Stijn Helsen who has worked as a costume designer on movies like ‘Spiderman 2’ and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’.
He has worked in the past for Vivienne Westwood, Valentino and on some LA movie blockbusters. He is well known for his bespoke tailored suits worn by stars like Lenny Kravitz, Danny Huston and the Belgium Royals.
Stijn Helsen is from a three generation Belgium tailor family and is dressing the Belgium team with tailored fitted three piece suits for men and couture comfortable tailored jerseys for women.
The male waistcoats come with silkscreened lining with the Belgium official Olympic Games logo and the Ladies will wear couture jersey jackets and leggings with a bustier in the national ‘Belgium three color’.
With Ralph Lauren dressing Team America, Stella McCartney doing the same for Team GB, and Team France opting for Hermes, Stijn is in good company.
