World Cup fever is officially reaching its pinnacle all over the globe as the start of Fifa’s world-renowned tournament takes over on June 12th. Everywhere you look, bars, homes and store windows have flags hung up supporting their country, prepared to have each and every game announced over radios and displayed on every television possible. Even the fashion industry has taken note and jumped on the band-wagon of the most popular sport in the world (3.5 billion fans might we remind you). For example, have you seen the “dream teams” featured on VOGUE’s Brazil and Russia cover this month? If not, we suggest taking a peek.
Taking this once every four year phenomena one step further is Textile Elizabeth and James who recently launched a capsule collection of World Cup inspired tees and tanks – based off the brand’s popular “Bowery” style – to sell exclusively on Shopbop.com. Selling from $88 – $96 the collection includes t-shirts, cropped tees and tanks in 100% slub cotton all featuring select countries competing in the 2014 tournament as well as an “I <3 futbol” print for everyone to enjoy. So now if you don’t have a jersey there’s no need to fret because you can still represent your country proudly (and stylishly) throughout the tournament.
