At Inter Miami, Lionel Messi keeps making an incredible impression both on and off the pitch. His No. 10 jersey was chosen as the best fashion item of 2023.Consequently, what happened?The top 15 fashion items that shaped the past 12 months have been compiled by lifestyle magazine Vogue. The jersey that eight-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi is currently wearing for his Major League Soccer team, whom he joined over the summer and led to a historic League Cup victory, is displayed on that chart.
VOGUE’S COMMENTS ON MESSI
Regarding a famous pink uniform being worn by a man who is regarded by many as the greatest of all time, Vogue wrote: “The generic Inter Miami jersey, in an unexpected shade of un-Barbie pink, sold out immediately following the Messi announcement, giving rise to a rich bootleg industry.” Almost five months later, the official Messi jersey with his number 10 is still on the adidas website’s waitlist for the majority of sizes.
THE LARGER IMAGE
Underwear that doubles as outerwear, Nike Shox and cat-eye sunglasses are seated next to Messi’s Inter Miami shirt. Although the Argentine icon has always set trends in his field, his widespread appeal and influence now go well beyond the boundaries of a football field.
FUTURE PLANS FOR MESSI?
In addition to his record-breaking shirt sales in Florida, Messi has continued to draw A-list attendees to Inter Miami games, including Selena Gomez and LeBron James. Inter Miami is also raising ticket prices for 2024 in an effort to maximise profits from games that sell out quickly.
