Not content with their lumo-pink jerseys of yesteryear, gay Stade Francais President, Max Guazzini, has done it again!
Paris – High art, or high farce? You be the judge as the always colourful Stade Francais club in Paris launches its latest rugby jersey on the world.
The trendy Parisian club has come up with a garish new design, launched to coincide with the start of this year’s Heineken Cup competition, that is either brilliantly chic, or downright sick, depending on your point of view.
SF’s new jersey
This year’s design depicts the face of Parisienne 13th-century heroine Blanche de Castille, the wife of Louis VIII, in a multi-coloured design described by club publicists as “in the fashion of Andy Warhol”.
Well, they’re certainly getting their 15 minutes of fame, and then some.
The shirts made their debut in the weekend’s 34-16 victory over Montauban that took the Ewen McKenzie-coached Stade Francais eight points clear of Toulouse at the top of the French Top 14.
As usual, the latest designs under the always colourful ownership of the eccentric Max Guazzini have created plenty of chatter.
Some critics have described it as the worst rugby jersey in the game’s history? Others love it.
Well the first thing I did was go straight to Wikipedia to dig up some dirt on this chick featured on the jersey – Blanche de Castille. Turns out she’s pretty solid and definitely worthy of celebration.
So that’s all I can do with this. It’s a history lesson, basically.
I also give the jersey the thumbs up, by the way.
Honestly, I’m fine with it.
