I am not a sports fan per se, but I have to say that I do really like the World Cup. I love seeing everyone root for their country . I love the idea of people coming together across the world, for a month full of highs, lows, and shared experiences.
Thank you to Brazil's Marie Claire June 2014 issue, which I am sure was inspired by many of the same ideas around the World Cup, the celebration of all the teams, countries and passionate people. Thank you as well to Vanity Fair's Italia April 2014 issue for the gorgeous images and inspiration through color and prints.
Cultures coming together, whether through 'football' or fashion is always a good thing.
