To accommodate the diverse body shapes of the athletes, Berluti has introduced an extensive range of sizes, from 3XS to 6XL for clothing and sizes 1 to 22 for shoes. This inclusive approach reflects the brand’s dedication to ensuring that every member of Team France feels confident and comfortable on the big day.

Under the creative direction of Fashion Consultant and Stylist Carine Roitfeld, Berluti has collaborated closely with athletes and committee members to create outfits that strike the perfect balance between style and functionality. The result is a collection that brims with elegance, flexibility, and comfort, allowing athletes to focus on their performance without any constraints.
