Dapper Demi-Gods: Dolce & Gabbana To Outfit Chelsea FC, Do Away with Frank’s Denim

As we mentioned on Twitter yesterday (seriously? you still haven’t hopped that bandwagon?) – Italian fashion design duo, Dolce & Gabbana announced details of their recently penned 3 year deal to outfit London-based Chelsea FC in a variety of fashionable Stamford Bridge-home and Movida/Chinawhite-away kits.
Designed by footballer-friendly Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana themselves, the same team that dresses David Beckham, AC Milan in addition to a star-studded Hollywood entourage of supporters, there’s two looks you should care about most:
B) A pair of five-pocket, blue denim jeans with a button-down blue poplin ‘Martini’ shirt, and black calfskin trainers (Ed Note: if there’s one thing this batch of historically bad behaving ‘ballers DON’T need, it’s clothes named after their cocktails).
As if the heavens opened up and beamed us with a ray of 24K Cartier gold light, is it too early to celebrate D&G’s successful campaign “Say No To Stains“? We’d argue yes, but must see it to believe it.
Yesterday, Henrique Hilario, Daniel Sturridge, Michael Essien, Michael Emenalo and John Obi Mikel attended a club presser in their official D&G suits to aid in the partnership announcement publicity. Previously, the club worked with another famed Italian – Giorgio Armani – to design certain rooms at Stamford Bridge as well as create clothing collections for the staff from 2007 – 2009 (Images: Swide.com).
Hugo Boss, your efforts as of late have been superbly valiant, but c’mon…this is D&G! Hearing news such as this is like seizing the last jelly from the pastry man: you can’t go wrong. And don’t challenge us to produce proof to the contrary; none exists.
