Messi to head his own Tommy Hilfiger range
Despite still dealing with the heartbreak that came along with surrendering a 3-0 advantage against Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final, Lionel Messi is turning his attention to off-pitch matters and will head his own range of Tommy Hilfiger clothing.
The La Masia graduate has delegated the process of designing the range to his sister, Maria Sol, and the collection of expensive clothes will be a range of high-quality garments.
Leo Messi Management has teamed up with Tommy Hilfiger and MGO in order to link the player's image with the world of fashion, something which his temporaries have already previously looked into.
Early indications are that the clothing range will be an upper tier collection with a wink at Messi's sporting background.
Whilst predominantly aimed at a male audience there will be several unisex and female options, and the premiere of the collection will take place in July.
Items will be sold globally via 'The Messi Store'.
