Wilfried Zaha has always been a football icon for his adoring fans. But he is also making waves in the world of fashion, with growing interest in his clothing collection Long Live, launched back in 2015.
The Palace star told Palace TV: “I’m proper passionate about fashion. I was shopping and I just couldn’t find specific things that I wanted. From there I thought – why not make my own thing? That’s where Long Live came from.”
His collaboration is with close friend Kenny AJ who has experience in the fashion industry, but Zaha is by no means a silent partner. “We come together twice a week. I like things to be specific, I put a lot into it. Football takes up loads of my time – so I don’t have time to get as hands on as I want to.”
The collection has been popular because of its simplicity and style, and use of fine fabrics to help create the perfect fit. Zaha explains: “For me, simple is more effective. I don’t like it when there’s too much going on.”
