How could you not buy this T-shirt? It’s got soccer balls, silhouettes of soccer players, exotic flowers, gold chains, Versace’s signature baroque print and a winged Medusa head in the middle … it’s literally perfect!
Forget that the super-high-end fashion label’s special World Cup tee runs $690, or between half and a third of the price of a plane ticket to Brazil. This cotton masterpiece is a must-have for anyone who calls themselves a true soccer fan. Or anyone that enjoys staring at Grateful Dead tapestries while partaking in extracurricular activities …
All jokes aside, you’d probably have to pay us $690 to wear this shirt in public, or, at the very least, have rapper Migos follow us around all day while blasting his signature single. Hit it!
Versace, Versace, Medusa head on me like I’m ‘Luminati!
If you need any more convincing to shell out seven Benjamins for one giant eye-sore of a shirt, check out its amazingly ostentatious description on Versace's website:
To celebrate the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, Donatella Versace has created a special t-shirt that combines the passions of football with the vivid iconography of the Versace DNA. A brand new Versace baroque print is created using the colors of a Brazilian carnival, decorated with repeated images footballs and flowers. Gold chains and leopard print add luxury, while silhouettes of football players connect the glamour of Versace with the sportsmanship of Brazil. At the heart of the t-shirt is the iconic Medusa head, with a special Versace rock twist.
Ah yes, we really needed to add the leopard print and gold chains “for luxury.” Otherwise it totally wouldn’t have been worth the price tag.
