Look around for a second, think about recent conversations you've had with friends and colleagues... They all revolve around one thing and one thing only right now: there are players running after a ball some 5000 miles away. And we are SO INTO IT. I mean I am a football novice and I have surprised myself sitting in a pub cheering for my team (that would be France). So yeah, football chat is in the air. And you know what's even better? Here at MCM we like to stay current, so we asked our craftsmen to create a very special item to commemorate this very special football event. From elements of Cognac Visetos fabric, the MCM football was born. I would love a bag in that shape. Just imagine it with a cross-body strap! How fun!
But today isn't about my wildest dreams, it is about the journey of this MCM ball from Seoul to London, via Paris, Berlin and all the way to Brazil! I wish I was a fly, so I could live inside this ball and discover the world... all the while meeting very talented and amazing football players! So just for a minute let's pretend there is a Munchen Cute Monster living inside the MCM ball and that he is sending us postcards from his tour du monde de football.
Day 1 - Welcome to Berlin! I landed here this morning from Paris. Aaaah Paris! Today we are preparing a very special event celebrating me and my monster pals. We love football and so it seemed natural for us to fly around in a football shaped ship. Please don't kick it too hard or we may get motion sickness!
Day 2 - Along the way, we met some interesting people. This little puppy was truly desperate to play with us. We fastened our seat belts and got ready for a soccer coaster ride. It was so much fun!
Day 3 - Brazil!!! We are so excited to be here!! This is where everything happens right now. We tried to blend in by disguising our ship as a human. I think it looks pretty realistic, don't you?
Day 4 - How about a little soccer demonstration? Yeah? Aaaaaaaaah!!! We are flying!!! Oh I am so dizzy now! I think I need to sit down for a minute, my heart is playing samba!
Day 5 - Serious business today, we get to meet football superstars Dante and Neymar. We feel a bit starstruck but we aren't sure if it is the awesome backpack or the players.
Day 6 - In doubt, we asked Neymar to sign our spaceship. I also asked for his phone number so he can give me football lessons. And now it is back over to Mademoiselle Robot who will show you what else happened to our steed!
As you can see, our MCM ball really did get around. Have a look below at some instagram snaps I gathered for you...
