Mondo Calcio is a fresh new football streetwear brand which celebrates football fandom and the culture behind it. We recently managed to get a quick interview with Liam, the owner of Mondo Calcio, which can be read below, but first I'd like to urge you to check out their website and discover a new way to express your passion for football - through streetwear.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am currently a student studying academics, this however isn't my passion. Football and the atmosphere surrounding it has been a major part of my life since birth.
Are you a big football fan? Who do you support?
Yes, I'm a massive football fan ever since I was very young. I was born into a family of football fans, mainly Chelsea fans so that's all I've known. But I enjoy watching all kinds of football! Especially Italian football, with all the passion of the players and the fans, hopefully the golden years of Italian football will be come back around very soon.
What made you want to start Mondo Cal?
Believe it or not, it was literally a typical shower thought! I looked into it and saw a massive gap in the market for a football streetwear brand. I would love the feeling of walking down the high street somewhere and seeing somebody wearing one of my designs. Plus, I love a good challenge.
What are your hopes for the future of Mondo Calcio?
The future with Mondo Calcio? I'm really optimistic about it. Obviously, we have long term targets and short term targets. Short term, I would like to get my brand out there and people knowing about us. And long term, we are looking to the top and being a mainstay in streetwear fashion and representing football in the streetwear industry. Looking to branch out into other cultures is definitely on the cards. Time will tell.
