Yes, futbol is a sweating sports which some ladies might associate that with shampoo on water-dripping hairs, body foam on sweat-filled chest and filthy wet towels. No, not anymore for the new generation. Take a look at the photo above, in replacing the sweat on the healthy clean-looking skins is the make-up brush!
Futbol in this new era is associating itself with famous brands like Giorgio Armani, Dolge & Gabbana, Calvin Klein and a lot more which could cause ladies, to certain extend, guys too, to scream!
Futbol has been linked with fashion. One of the earliest fubol stars to ever hit the news headline for his unique fashion sense will have to be David Beckham. His traffic-stopping Armani garment ad was iconic till these days. There is no doubt that he is the earliest and most successful futbol player to launch this futbol fashion trend. If this short write-up about Beckham did refresh that memory of yours which pictured Beckham in a “sarong”, its really an outstanding attire in that part of the world. It’s encouraging as far as fashion is concern - fashion is more like do you dare to wear, isn’t it!
More established brands went searching for their ideal futbol stars for endorsement. Cristiano Ronaldo was signed up by Armani to model in their ad campaigns for Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans. Previously, other than David Beckham, they have also endorsed Kaka, Thierry Henry, Fabio Cannavaro and Luis Figo. Calvin Klein went knocking on the doors of Freddie Ljungberg’s and also Asian-famous Hidetoshi Nakata’s. And for the french luxury label, Louis Vuitton, they signed on famous photographer, Annie Leibovitz to snap photos of Diego Maradona, Pele and Zinedine Zidane for an ad campaign.
In May 2011, Dolge & Gabbana (D&G) launched a coffee table booklet, Milan Fashion Soccer Players Portraits, for AC Milan where the players put on D&G tops for an unique black and white shot by young photographer, Marco Falcetta. For fashion conscious and the adorers, these are a set of intimate shots which is obviously new to the players and us. Among the models-players featured, some of the most outstandings were Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, Robinho and Pato.
D&G is known for his love for Italian futbol players. After successfully transformed Milan’s players’ hard-tackling side to the slight softened using fashion, it prompted me to do more research on the net. One of another fashion + futbol combined work was Leslie Osborne, a women’s professional futbol player for Boston Breakers being endorsed by a Andrea Kim, a South-Korean designer. There you go again, fashion does not applied to ladies exclusively but mens’ too. In terms of sports fashion, its a highly sought after trend development. To all ladies who are reading this, futbol is never the same sweating sports anymore! Embrace the new fashion style!
