Ferdinand’s biggest fashion influence and inspiration is his father, Julian, who was a successful tailor. Today, the number that Ferdinand proudly wore during his 12 years with Manchester United has been turned into a fashion brand: FIVE Supply. The brand was founded in collaboration with fashion designer Ian O’Connor and focuses on headwear. FIVE Supply boxer shorts and t-shirts are also available. FIVE Supply has also popped up in the media… in the shape of a lifestyle magazine. Check it!
Mesut Özil – M10
Süper Lig soccer player Mesut Özil has succeeded on the pitch as an attacking midfielder for teams including Arsenal and Real Madrid. He played with Arsenal during their four English FA Cup wins, the most recent one in 2020, and their two English Super Cup victories. You might know the 33-year-old soccer star best for his Player of the Year award during the 2014 FIFA World Cup, where his team, Germany, took the trophy home. Just when you think he’s peaked, Özil continues to defy soccer odds and raise the bar with his athleticism.
Despite still being active on the field with Süper Lig team Fenerbahçe, Özil dedicates time to his clothing brand, M10, which launched in November 2020. The collection features casual and comfortable streetwear items you can wear every day. Think high-quality tracksuits, t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts and headwear with distinct colors and the signature M10 moniker. The line reflects the brand’s values of multiculturalism and inclusivity, which are a big part of Özil’s personal brand and life.
Megan Rapinoe – RE
You didn’t think we’d left out the women’s league, now, did you? Our last entry is American soccer champion and activist Megan Rapinoe. Rapinoe’s extensive achievements on the pitch include winning two World Cup titles and an Olympic gold medal. Back in 2019, she took the Golden Boot for scoring the most goals at the World Cup and topped it off with a Golden Ball award for being the tournament’s top player. In the same season, Rapinoe was named FIFA’s Women’s World Player of the Year. That’s some style on the pitch!
Off the pitch, meanwhile, Rapinoe stands out a mile with her signature pink or purple hair, as well as her unique personal style. Her success in the fashion industry has come as no surprise, not only through her collaboration with Nike for Nike x Megan, but in her own clothing brand, Re–Inc: The unisex clothing brand was created with fellow champions Tobin Heath, Meghan Klingenberg and Christen Press. Today, Re–Inc offers eco-conscious fashion and creative lifestyle goods. All of its products are proudly designed for every gender identity and body type, with a focus on reimagining modern fashion.
So that’s that. The tables have officially turned – it’s no longer pop stars and actors defining the next fashion trends; now it’s soccer stars! Are any of the prominent players in your soccer betting odds also emerging or established fashion icons?
