Versace have jumped on the World Cup bandwagon and produced a shirt celebrating this summer's tournament in Brazil—and it can be yours for (just) $690, or £410.

Here's how the company explains the shirt on their official website (per Yahoo! Sport):

To celebrate the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, Donatella Versace has created a special t-shirt that combines the passions of football with the vivid iconography of the Versace DNA. A brand new Versace baroque print is created using the colors of a Brazilian carnival, decorated with repeated images footballs and flowers. Gold chains and leopard print add luxury, while silhouettes of football players connect the glamour of Versace with the sportsmanship of Brazil. At the heart of the t-shirt is the iconic Medusa head, with a special Versace rock twist.

It would be foolish to try to make any personal fashion judgement here, but it is worth pointing out that it has caused a bit of a reaction on social media (both good and bad):

It all comes down to taste. If Medusa heads, gold chains and leopard prints—all mixed in with a carnival and a load of footballs—are your thing, then this is the shirt for you.

If not...
