Our Road to Brazil continues: Starting June 5th, we introduced our latest sports-meets-style collaboration where football teams with fashion. This season. MCM united six of the world's most renowned and talented soccer players to celebrate this year's Road to Brazil, making them #TeamMCM.
You may have spotted Ronaldo sporting his bespoke rendition of MCM backpack-style and you may have also seen Xherdan Shaqiri and his one-of-a-kind MCM design. This week we're pleased to present one of Brazil's internationally-acclaimed footballers and of the best highlights of the opening game: Neymar!
This notorious forward is not just a winger, this champion is one of the world's most talented players at present. Neymar plays for Spanish club FC Barcelona in La Liga and the Brazilian national team
As you might know: Each player has designed their very own and unique MCM backpack, working closely with the MCM design team to bring their customised backpacks to life.
The result: Six unique backpacks, six bespoke styles. MCM's leading craftsmen from Germany worked night and day, handcrafting the one of-a-kind details into all six personalised designs. This week, we present Neymar da Silva, a true MCM lover who has been spotted wearing our iconic backpacks. So what did Neymar create in support of #TeamMCM?
Of course, as a true Brazilian aficionado he steeped our iconic Visetos Backpack into some national inspirations: bold green with some local design accoutrements to boot. The national flag is adorned on the facade, while his initials are embellished over the front pocket. As a bonus, you'll find silhouettes of Neymar and some of his team embossed on the back.
Bravo, Neymar - you should design more often! Are you impressed by this talented guy? We certainly are!
