Ever wondered what a penalty shootout between Alexander McQueen and Jil Sander would look like? Us too, and London-based designer and illustrator Angelo Trofa has confirmed it’s every bit as stylish as in our heads.
In celebration of the start of Euro 2016, Trofa has imagined what eight international kits would look like if they were each designed by a homegrown fashion house. The result sees Gosha Rubchinskiy turn the Russian kit into alt-streetwear, while Sweden’s all-black-errthing Acne Studios kit is typically minimalist.
The England strip – which would be worn by Messers Sturridge, Vardy and even Rooney – has been taken care of by McQueen. The look uses the swallow print from the fashion house’s iconic 1995 ‘The Birds’ collection, capped off with matching socks.
Sadly, the fash-pack kits aren’t likely to be called off the bench anytime soon. However, fashion shopping site Lyst is offering one amateur football team the chance to work with Trofa on their own set of custom shirts.
Throughout the duration of the Euro 2016 Tournament, teams can tweet or Instagram a picture @lyst with the hashtag #LystFantasyFootball to enter. The winning team will be announced on July 10.
Now could be Dave-from-down-the-pub’s time to show his design flair.
