So I didn’t end up making a big deal about it, because I wasn’t happy with the way on looked on camera, but back in September, I was interviewed on Mike Rizzo’s talk show. If you haven’t already, you should really check out Mike’s site, Rizzo Sports. It was such a fun experience and I’m still so grateful Mike invited me on his show!
While Mike and I were chatting he informed me that Dolce & Gabbana provide the official uniforms of the soccer team A.C. Milan. I’ve never claimed to know a lot about soccer, but! why did no one tell me this?? I have to admit I was super jealous that none of our American teams received sponsorships like this. I mean of course I am excited Ralph Lauren outfits our Olympic teams, but that’s only once every few years…I wanted to see this more!
Well, my wish has been granted! While catching up on my issues of WWD ( I admit, I’m always a month behind) I discovered two very exciting fashion/sport sponsorships that were recently announced.
DKNY has announced a multifaceted long-term sponsorship with the New York Yankees. Although no official plans have been announced for an exclusive clothing line, I can’t help but think it has to be in the works!
Of course the other sponsorship is also with an NY team, but honestly I can’t say I’m surprised, of course the fashion capital of America would start this trend with American teams.
Joesph Abboud also recently announced that they will be the official designer apparel partner for the NY Giants! Now we’re really on the right track with this one!!!
I don’t know about you, but I’m so excited to see what happens next, with both of these collaborations!! And who knows…maybe the Steelers will be next! ( A girl can dream…….)
