Looking good, Romolo!
About a month ago, renowned football club AS Roma announced that they would be collaborating with Japanese-inspired Italian fashion brand tokidoki to produce a clothing lineup that would include jerseys, t-shirts, hoodies, and more.
All of the products are now on sale and can be purchased on the official AS Roma store website. Of course, the main attractions are the home and away jerseys which cost €91 (~US$100 or ~RM420) each. Check them out:
Tokidoki’s Italian founder Simone Legno has always been a big fan of AS Roma, which is technically his home team since he himself was born and raised in the Nuovo Salario area of Rome. In designing the jersey and integrating the team’s mascot Romolo into his work, Legno says it’s been a great experience for him.
“I’ve worked with Hello Kitty, Marvel and SpongeBob for years – I’ve put my hand to lots of different characters. The club liked the restyling idea that I had in mind, so we met right away. Because I’m a Roma fan, I put even more effort in than in other projects in my career.”
– Simone Legno in an interview with AS Roma.
Thank god I’m not a football fan because dang, those are some great looking jerseys!
