Paul Smith releases a limited-edition leather football to celebrate the Brazil World Cup

With just some days until the 2014 FIFA World Cup kickoff in Brazil, Paul Smith celebrates a summer of sport and excitement with a leather football that features the brand’s iconic stripped pattern. The launch is accompanied by a video, directed by Oliver Hadlee Pearch, in which Guinness world record holder and former football freestyle world champion John Farnworth pirouettes through Paul Smith’s Westbourne House store in London’s Notting Hill. Farnworth, whose incredible talent has earned him numerous fans all around the world, elegantly juggles the limited-edition ball, wearing a Paul Smith suit that doesn’t crease and a pair of grand brogues shoes. Limited to only 250 pieces, the balls are available from June 4, 2014, in the Paul Smith store at Heathrow Airport, as well as online, and are priced at £199. Five of them have been signed by Mr. Smith himself, so if you are interested you should really hurry up!
