Notes from the press release announcing the appointment of Stéphane Ashpool as Artistic Director and Senior Designer for the Paris 2024 French Summer Olympic and Paralympic teams:

Stéphane looks to the future and draws inspiration from the multiculturalism of our athletes. To reflect this, he reinterprets the tricolor flag, using a mixture of hues and languages to reflect the country.

Committee will have Le Coq Sportif manufacture performance clothing for more than thirty Olympic
