The Marley Legacy - Italian Vogue

CEDELLA MARLEY, the fashion designer daughter of music legend Bob Marley, is teaming up with 

Puma

 to create the 2012 Olympic costumes for the Jamaican track and field team. The designs will be worn by the entire team, including the Jamaican Olympic gold medallist, Usain 'Lightning' Bolt.

 
"It'll be Grace Jones meets my Dad - very music inspired and a bit retro," says Marley, who began designing clothes while she was on tour with Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, a band comprised of her brothers and sisters. "I'm trying to weave a red, gold and green tag on the inside but really it's about the athletes. There will be elements of Dad's look about it though, especially him in those tracksuits he used to wear - I'll be bringing that too. I'm sure he's smiling down right now."
