Ahead of the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, the Italian fashion house Versace has created a special soccer-inspired T-shirt, reflecting the vivid iconography of the Brazilian carnival.

“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.”
