Jenny Rissveds to Miss World Champs
This situation is not that uncommon in sports sponsorship deals. Normally you would include a caveat in the athlete's sponsorship deal allowing the athlete to wear the national kit (even if it is provided by a different brand). Equally, the national team's sponsorship deal should include caveats to allow athletes to use their own kit where they are contractually bound. Alternatively, where you have a star athlete like Jenny, you often make sure the national sponsor is the same as the athlete's sponsor to avoid a conflict. I reckon this is a question of agents or lawyers getting the sponsorship deal wrong.
