Roberto Cavalli just launched 11 customized soccer balls as part of the multimedia exhibition, “Fanatic Feelings- Fashion Plays Football,” at the Pitti Uomo 94 menswear event which took place in Florence between June 12-15. Designed by Cavalli’s creative director, Paul Surridge, the collection will be sold for charity, celebrating the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia (June 14 to July 15).
All handmade in Italy from genuine leather, the English designer has created 11 soccer balls with bold and recognizable motifs, notably using the Italian label’s animal and camouflage prints.
The soccer balls will go on sale — with some heading to Roberto Cavalli flagship stores in Milan, Rome, Berlin, London and Paris — and revenue will be donated to the Together to Go Onlus foundation, supporting children with complex neurological diseases.
The collection has been created as part of the “Fanatic Feelings- Fashion Plays Football” multimedia exhibition, curated by Marcus Ebner and Francesco Bonami at Pitti Uomo 94, exploring soccer’s influence on men’s fashion.
