“Well, I like navy/light blue, so I guess I am rooting for the Broncos/Panthers.”
For fashion lovers who aren’t also fans of football, jersey color may be the only determining factor when choosing between rooting for the Denver Broncos or the Carolina Panthers during Super Bowl 50 Sunday, Feb. 7.
So while the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and the NFL may seem an unlikely pair, the result of their collaboration is truly dazzling. The two have teamed up to design custom bespoke footballs to be auctioned off with proceeds going to the NFL Foundation. Fifty CFDA members, including well-known names like Kenneth Cole, Prabal Gurung, Vince Camuto and more, were tasked with putting a personal and fashionable spin on Super Bowl 50 footballs.
With many of the designers taking golden inspiration for the championship game’s 50th anniversary, their creations put the fantasy in football. From tassels to bedazzled bling to flowers, and everything in between, these game day accessories are sure to catch even the most not-sporty fashion lover’s eye.
