For the fans of calcio (Italian for soccer) out there, Dolce & Gabbana is gearing up for the upcoming FIFA World Cup with a collection of underwear and sportwear that will be supporting the Italian team. The designers decided to feature five players from the Italian national squad in the ad, which was shot by Mariano Vivanco. From left to right they are: Antonio Di Natale, Vincenzo Iaquinta, Federico Marchetti, Claudio Marchisio, and Domenico Criscito. The collection will feature underwear with the words CALCIO and ITALIA, and the sportswear is in the blue and white colors of the Italian squad. This collection will be available mid-May at all Dolce & Gabbana boutiques. Now the $64 million dollar question: can Italy win the cup again like it did four years ago, or will Brazil come out triumphant?
