Moschino dresses Italian rugby team

Moschino has designed the Aironi rugby team’s new official suits. This is a pioneering partnership because it is the first time that an international fashion brand has dressed a rugby team. Aironi Rugby is one of two Italian teams that have started playing in the Magners League championship this season against teams from Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. It is also vying for the Heineken Cup, the most important continental competition that gathers top rugby teams competing for the European title. Many Aironi athletes also play on Italy’s national team, and some are considered the stars of tomorrow in Italian rugby. The Moschino suits were designed taking into account the physicality of the players focusing on designing a sartorial suit made from traditional British fabrics. Embroidered inside the jacket is a heart and the official suit is completed by a white shirt that again has a red heart embroidered on the pocket. A regimental tie with the Aironi emblem on the stripes, classic Oxford shoes, and a black belt with the Moschino logo complete the look.
