Each piece will feature a specially designed coat of arms by the College of Arms, which provides the basis for the iconography across the UK's entire Olympics and Paralympics range.
Here, Trott shows the front of the white tailored jacket, which is paired with a statement buckle For the female athletes, McCartney designed a sporty navy-blue dress made from a high-performance perforated fabric.
