Football is the game that refuses to grow old. It is progress and perpetual motion personified. Certain players leave their distinct mark on the game. Certain products change how they play. Welcome to the icons of Total 90 Football, that Sartoria asked visual artists Delta, Futura, Mode2 and photographer Laurence Passera to interpret.
ICON # 1 > FUTURA MEETS FRANCESCO TOTTI
Some call him the King. Ingenious player Francesco Totti is a master. You don’t see him but he’s everywhere. Who better to interpret him and his Air Zoom Total 90 weapons than the style master Futura, who has led generations of artists from trains to canvas and graphic design?
ICON # 2 > DELTA MEETS RUUD VAN NISTELROOY
Power comes from the centre. Van Nistelrooy is a steam engine. It was only natural to match his hard-edged, logical game with Delta’s iconic 3-D graffiti style. Two powerhouses like these could create no less than the Total 90 Aerow Ball: faster than light, more accurate than an arrow.
ICON # 3 > MODE 2 MEETS THIERRY HENRY
Intuition is a gift. Match it with astonishing speed and you’ve got the player Henry. His Mercurial Vapor shoes add up for pure acceleration. Mode2 has one of the lightest touches in the art scene today. His instantaneous sketches of hip hop dancers, club scenes, and everyday people capture the essence movement.
