Who’s that charming bunch I hear you ask? Looking impeccably dressed for their team photo are Team Italia no less, and don’t they look good? How do they do it, Italian good looks? The golden rays of sun shining down on them? No, Dolce and Gabbana. Yes that’s right, the Italian football team get suited and booted in classic Italian super-brand Dolce and Gabbana, and the England boys get Marks and Spencer. Says it all really doesn’t it.
Not that we don’t love M&S, but if we were to choose between tailoring from British high street retailer and luxury Italian designer brand, we think we know which one we’d go for.
As well as the ‘Martini’ suit (it even has a stylish name…) in classic Azzuro blue, the Italian squad will be also be kitted out with a quilted blue trench coat, black calfskin lace-ups and a pair of aviator sunglasses complete with Italian flag at the hinge. Oo-er.
So we’re sorry to say it, but the Italian squad have stormed ahead in the World Cup style stakes so far, but who knows, maybe the England boys can win back some points with their off-duty attire – tracksuits accessorised with an obligatory WAG anyone?
If you are tempted to masquerade as an Italian supporter, or just rather fancy donning some stylish Dolce and Gabbana then you can get your hands on the aviators that make up part of the official strip. Retailing at $260 the sunglasses are available at Dolce and Gabbana boutiques worldwide now.
