Messi Lifestyle Apparel Brand Continues to Grow Under the Collaboration of Hilfiger
With their first birthday on the horizon, the brand has taken the lifestyle apparel industry by storm
The Messi Store has firmly established itself as a fresh and compelling brand within the lifestyle apparel industry. Led by Designer and Creative Director, Ginny Hilfiger, and the Brand Manager, Maria Sol Messi, the chief goal of the brand is to expand on Leo Messi’s already growing list of accomplishments.
Built from the same core values and vision that Messi holds personally, the brand explores the idea of bringing identical intensity from the pitch as they do their premium lifestyle apparel.

“Life is about choices, sacrifices, determination, and hard work,” said Leo Messi. “Who I am today is shaped by these factors coming together at different points throughout my career. I am excited to bring the same core values and ambition to my personal lifestyle brand.”
With over two decades of experience within the fashion industry, Ginny Hilfiger brings her expertise to the line in carefully chosen color palettes, signature details and modern designs. Beginning her career alongside her brother Tommy, Ginny is responsible for designing and launching Tommy Jeans, H by Hilfiger, and the TommyxGiGi collaboration. Ginny was also responsible for the beginning of the rebranding of Fila globally in 2013.
“When I decided to pursue this collaboration, my goal was to always stay true to Leo and to push the boundaries of what it means to be celebrated as a decorated soccer icon,” said Creative Director, Ginny Hilfiger. “Our designs are focused on being effortless and accessible to all, much like that of Leo’s personal style.”
However, the powerful team does not stop there. The brand also welcomes their Brand Manager, Maria Sol Messi, Leo’s younger sister who has found passion in fashion and trends her entire life.
“It is a casual, fresh and modern collection that can be worn by people of any age.” Said Brand Manager, Maria Sol Messi. “The life style brand reflects what my brother is like, a humble person, with very clear ideas of what he wants”.
The Messi Store offers a range of iconic menswear pieces from edgy graphic t-shirts and sweatshirts, to jackets and high-performance polos and pants, all of which reflect Leo’s sense of style. The collection is currently preparing for a busy summer as major events surrounding Messi and his career are set to take place.
