If you call football “soccer,” it’s you probably won’t care much for this post.
However, if you’re a die-hard fan with a soft spot for fashion, you may want to read on.
Today, we learned that Dolce & Gabbana has signed on with Chelsea Football Club to provide formal club suits for the team in the coming three years.
In addition, the iconic fashion house will create the “Dolce & Gabbana Lounge” in the West Stand at Stamford Bridge and redesign the club’s main office reception.
Why you ask? According to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the choice was pretty simple.
“Football players are style icons both on and off the pitch and, on top of this, there is our love of England and of London, which have always been a source of inspiration for our work,” they said.
