The Olympics will start in a month but the British flag is already the most requested accessory

The Olympics will only start in a month, but fashion fans already have some trendy accessories to play with, as there is a riot of Union Jack themed products in stores and on the web. The English flag looks like the only patriotic symbol currently in fashion. And as a result it has conquered British designers such as Alice Temperley, Alexander McQueen and Markus Lupfer. two bright wings decorated with the Union Jack sold at the Parisian store Montaigne Market. Garrard has been the Crown's official London jewelery since 1721 and has a long history of serving the British monarchy.

There are not only the Olympics: 2012 is also the year of the jubilee of Queen Elizabeth, which took place a couple of weeks ago. Our motto therefore can only be wear British this summer, let's dress English and let's go as far as our rain boots (strictly Hunter) with printed flag will take us. For a lighter and more versatile white, red and blue look, the patriotic choice must be a bag. The options are plentiful. Lulu Guiness flies the British flag with her oversized lip-shaped clutch; Charlotte Olympia slipped the flag into her famous Plexiglas Pandora, and Jimmy Choo followed the punk-chic route with her Candy Union Jack.

By Alexander McQueen the classic minaudiere has been reissued in a limited edition with a silver-colored skull clasp - available exclusively from Montaigne Market and in only 25 pieces, so don't waste your time if you want it!

And for those wishing to wear the three-color flag, Alice Temperley thought of a jumpsuit dress and Markus Lupfer designed a bag with Union Jack on a pullover, alluring but not cloying. For a more subtle nod to this year's celebrations, there are Paul Smith's Mini Union Jack cufflinks or a shoe bag in the colors of the flag, perfect gifts, to be delivered with a Jubilee-themed birthday card 2012; all available from Liberty London.

The Union Jack is a great expression of unity in diversity. Considering the tools we have at hand or just a click away, this summer the winning choice is to support London, the Olympics, the Queen and fashion.
