Football fever is in full swing ahead of the FIFA World Cup which kicks off this month, and now fashion designer PAUL SMITH has gotten in on the action, creating a limited edition leather football.

Featuring the British designer’s signature multicolored printed stripe motif, the ball comprises different chevron contrasting panels displaying zigzag patterns and graphic lines.

With only 250 manufactured, the piece — which is not designed for recreational use — is set to become a collector’s item for design fans.

The brand has also released a short film by young British director Oliver Hadlee Pearch, set in the designer’s Notting Hill boutique in London.

The film features a stylized session of keepy-uppy from the suited and booted football freestyler John Farnworth.

The Paul Smith Signature Stripe Football is available for £199 or €273.
