Diadora x Roberto Baggio Collection – World Cup 94

Diadora x Roberto Baggio WC94 Collection

How incredible is this!

If you are a fan of football and grew up watching it in the early to mid 90’s you’ll know how good Italian football was, and all the legendary players they had. Serie A was the league to play in back then, and the Italian national team had some superstars including Roberto Baggio. Italia ’90 was a great World Cup which West Germany won, but four years later at USA 94 Italy got to the final where they were beaten by Brazil on penalties. One of the most memorable players of the tournament was Roberto Baggio, who sadly missed the crucial penalty kick for Italy.

Diadora has teamed up with Roberto Baggio and released this tiny capsule collection, the Diadora x Roberto Baggio collection which includes these three pieces, all of which I really like. There’s a blue T-shirt which is similar to that of what Italy were wearing during the World Cup as their home shirt. There’s a crew neck sweatshirt in navy blue with the Italia pattern on, but my favourite piece from the collection is the jacket.

Roberto Baggio x Diadora Jacket, T-Shirt and Sweatshirt

The track jacket is primarily white with navy blue detailing on the arms, and the front has the iconic 90’s style pattern with blue, green and red. These are the same design of jackets which Italy wore at the World Cup before the games, part of the presentation tracksuit. These are slightly modified, with a slightly different badge, and the Roberto Baggio signature printed on the back in gold.

This is a Made In Italy collection, is strictly limited and you’ll be lucky to find any right now. The collection went on sale on Saturday 15th July, only sold in selected shops and has sold out in most places. The T-shirt comes in at £59, sweatshirt £89 and infamous jacket £115.

As for as iconic clothing turned into street wear I think this has been very well done, and it’s just a shame that it’s in such limited quantities. What do you think of these pieces?
