"I like nice clothes, whether they're dodgy or not." David Beckham Author Simon Doonan has two passions in life: Fashion and Soccer. At one time these two obsessions would have made very strange bedfellows. But times have changed: soccer and fashion have fallen in love. The unapologetic and unbridled style choices of today's soccer stars offer a fascinating window into the heart of the game. Looking at the beautiful game through the lens of style, Doonan entertainingly explores the magic and madness of this unique culture. Charting soccer style from its very beginnings, he pays homage to the great style icons of the game, from George Best to Lionel Messi, before turning his gaze to the hair, the tattoos, and the cars, not to mention those other style icons of the game: the fans, the managers, and, of course, the WAGs. Doonan's laser wit and hilarious observations are complemented by more than 230 photographs, making this a laugh-out-loud read for even the most fickle soccer fan or fashionista.
