Dolce & Gabbana Teams Up With Soccer Star Lionel Messi

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana love them some soccer football players. First they launched a World Cup underwear campaign, then they joined forces with the Chelsea Football Club and now they’ve tapped FC Barcelona‘s Lionel Messi to wear D&G exclusively to all official events. Says the dynamic duo:

We are very happy to link our name to that of a great champion such as Leo Messi. Talent is innate, but it’s the passion and the sheer will we see while he plays that have elevated him to the highest level of worldwide football.

Soccer players sure do make good fashion plates (don’t even get us started on their hair), and Messi is no stranger to the industry — he’s modeled underwear for Argentinian company Lody. Let’s get ourselves acquainted with the man who many consider one of this generation’s best players.
