Fashion icon Ralph Lauren is bringing his signature touch to American competitors for yet another Olympic ceremony. When the Winter Olympics take place this February, get ready to be dazzled by designs that are both fashionable and practical.

The 2018 designs are made with special heating capabilities that will keep the athletes warm in the freezing Pyeongchang winter. But this isn't your run-of-the-mill heating blanket science. "It's the most technologically advanced jacket ever produced," according to Lauren, whose designs use an ink-laced fabric that heats up. The weightless aspect of the heating component will make it easier for the competitors.
