'Les Vêtements de Football' Anniversary Book Pictures a High-Fashion Pitch
The ‘NSS’ book explores football and fashion through a bootleg lens.
Football fan or not, ‘The Beautiful Game’ and the world of fashion have become inseparable over the past decade. While clubs and luxury labels race to drop a new capsule every month, bootleg shirts will always play an integral part of both the accessibility and culture around the sport.
Published by Italian magazine NSS, Les Vêtements de Football: Anniversary Edition presents an array of photos that chronicle the football-fashion dichotomy through the lens of bootleg culture. From international bangers to retro classics, there is a shirt for everyone across this book, along with a number of new editorial stories featuring legendary figures, such as former French forward Djibril Cissé.
Les Vêtements de Football: Anniversary Edition is available to order for €40 EUR / $42 USD. NSS is also selling a number of the bootleg kits featured in the book, such as a “PRADERBY” Galatasaray 14/15 kit and a longsleeve “VARSACE” Algeria shirt from the 2004 season.
