The classiest Olympics ever are coming. High end chic marketing dream.

I like the medallion designs. They remind of Japanese metal art. The Japonisme of French and Philippe Burty will always remain in vogue.

some critics ... argue that the modern Olympics have become tainted by corporate money.

It's ALL about the money - just ask Tokyo, and numerous other cities awarded the games.

That's only you, dear. Japonisme? The French are capable enough to design chic things without any Japonisme influence.

But personally I don't like these at all: they tried so much to highlight that hexagonal piece of Eiffel tower that the entire thing ended up looking like a communist military medal, with those rays coming out underneath it..
