Del Piero in fashion
Alessandro Del Piero, who was part of Italy’s World Cup-winning squad last year, is about to take his first steps in the world of fashion as the 33-year-old Juventus striker will be designing a range of clothing for youngsters on behalf of Batrax Distribution in Turin. “Fashion has always fascinated me, “ said Del Piero, batrax is owned by Fabrizio Danna, a businessman who counts Del Piero among his circle of friends. The striker’s wife, Sonia, also owns a famous boutique in the centre of Turin. The attire of Brazil coach Carlos Dunga also caught the eye in recent matches, but his shirts were not part of the Del Piero range – they were designed by Dunga’s daughter, a fashion student.
