Brand: Versace

Season: SS18

Key Features: The Italian fashion house’s design is uncharacteristically minimalist, featuring a white base with black stripes on the torso and sleeves, as well as black detailing on the back half of the oversized collar. Red trim on the sleeves adds a pop of color, while the two gold and red graphics on either side of the chest mimic the crest and sponsorship logos seen on real football jerseys.

Editor’s Notes: Versace is jumping on the FIFA World Cup bandwagon in a big way with its luxury $700 football jersey. Because it won’t actually hit the pitch at this summer’s World Cup in Russia, we’re left dreaming of an alternate universe where teams really do run out wearing luxury jerseys like the one above.

Fashion has tried to adopt the football jersey and turn it into a statement piece for a minute now. Brands like Les Vêtements de Football, Fly Nowhere, KITH, and more, have tried their hand at designing jerseys — some more successful than others.

This Versace jersey is quite clearly one of the better attempts because it doesn’t try to do too much. The only nod to the label’s penchant for ostentatious designs are the two crests, which serve to give the jersey a bit more of a high-fashion feel. Replace the crests with a sportswear logo and real club badge, and we could easily see this design worn at the World Cup.

If you’re looking to set yourself apart from the rest of your friends at the next weekend kick around, head to SSENSE via the link below to cop this beauty for $695.

What do you think of the Versace jersey? Would you rock it on and off the pitch? Let us know in the comments.
