Hola! Diego!

Maradona is one of my all time heros, and not just in sports. I don’t particularly idolize many people, but he is an exception. Aside from being the greatest player of his time, he is a real human being, not the usual boring and predictable celebrity. Outspoken and funny, troubled and genius, a saint and a sinner.

Watching Maradona as the manager of a great Argentina team is almost as fun as watching him play.  I love the way he kisses and hugs each player when they come off the field. I love the way he paces like a little Napoleon on the sidelines. The Argentina players will play their hearts out for this guy and as the World Cup progresses, one can’t help but think that Maradona, could be the X factor in this World Cup.

When Some Product started, the very first collection of graphics ever designed and produced was entitled “BADASS”. They were dedicated to the real “badasses” in the world of sports. Without much hesitation Maradona was my very first choice for the upcoming line as he literally epitomizes the term.

The Maradona graphic was also featured on a cut and sew line of “BADASS” women’s dresses, that were available at select boutiques in North America and Japan that same season. Also visible on the dress are the Reggie Jackson and Dr. J designs. The dress was featured in a Flaunt magazine editorial that same season.

…..And from Germany, a different take on a Maradona t!!!! Amazing.
