You may already have guessed by now, that these aren’t the kind of spots accessories that can be used on the field, but they do promise to perfectly complement your Cavalli SS19 wardrobe. These prints call all be found in the brand’s SS19 men’s collection.
An undisclosed number of footballs from the set of 11 will be showcased and retailed Roberto Cavalli flagship stores such as Milan, Rome, Paris, London and Berlin to celebrate the Soccer World Cup- 2018.
