the rest of the world catches on to what we have known for a long time
There’s an interesting article in The New York Times about how fashion designers are keeping their eyes on footballers in the World Cup to be the “new batch of potential underwear models and fragrance pitchmen.”
According to the article, menswear designer Simon Spurr’s money is on Fernando Torres. This is how Fernando is described: “the sometimes-blond striker for Spain with boy-band looks who already has his own watch collection and an autobiography.”
Meanwhile, Iker is described as “a goalie who looks like a Spanish Josh Hartnett and was dubbed by People (of all people) as “the next big thing.”” Mexican designer Christian Cota says, “Iker definitely has the potential to be turned into a ‘brand,’ much like Ronaldo or Beckham.”
No, Iker is much better looking than Josh Harnett. And sorry People magazine, but Iker reached the status of “big thing” back in 2002, if not earlier. But please, someone sign Iker up for an underwear campaign?
Anyway, way to jump on the bandwagon, designers. I bet once the World Cup is over and the excitement dies down, they’ll quickly forget about these boys. And I could have saved you a lot of time and effort by just handing you a list. After all, the Spanish national team is basically only made up of hot guys.
