Victor Cruz For Mr Porter's 'The Journal'

Professional football player Victor Cruz of the New York Giants fronts the new launch and latest issue of Mr Porter‘s ‘The Journal‘.

On the field, Cruz is a great wide receiver and off the field, he’s a stylish man. Cruz was spotted at the Men’s Collection: in June, he was seated front row at the Calvin Klein Collection show in Milan followed by Lanvin and Givenchy in Paris.

In the cover story, Cruz talks about how he got interested in fashion, his dream collaboration and wanting to work with Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy, other stylish athletes and much more. Below are some highlights:

On how he got interested in fashion:

“Three or four years ago, I realized I wanted to expand my mind and hang out in places besides sports bars,” he says, explaining how he got interested in the fashion scene. “I wanted to meet different designers, not just for free clothes, but to be friends and learn from them.”

On his dream collaboration and wanting to work with Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy:

 “My dream would be to collaborate with Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy, and make leather hat cases for travel,” he says. Mr Cruz likes to travel with as many as a half dozen hats and never knows if they’ll emerge from an aeroplane intact. “I have a wide Calvin Klein duffle carry-on, and I just kind of tuck them in gently and hope for the best.”

On other stylish athletes:

“Aaron Rodgers has a good style, very clean and sophisticated,” he says of the Green Bay Packers quarterback. “I like Larry Fitzgerald’s [of the Arizona Cardinals] three-piece suits. It looks good on a guy who’s tall and has an athletic build like him.” He gently chides the Giants’ Southern-beau quarterback, Mr Eli Manning, for not taking enough sartorial risks: “I’m trying to get him to bring it a bit more. He has a Zegna contract of some sort. He always looks good, but he’s not having as much fun as he could.”
