Hot Models Playing Soccer? Yes Please.

Scenes from the annual Adidas Fanatic tournament in NYC

text and photos by Rebecca Smeyne



Adidas Fanatic is an annual tradition in which co-ed teams repping stylish indie entities such as Opening Ceremony, Kinfolk, The Last Magazine, and Acne Studios (PAPER even had a team, back in the day!) compete in a soccer tournament. It's as much a fashion event as it is a sports event, due to the absurdly cool crowd, which is heavy on models (Jacquelyn Jablonski and Binx Walton play on the Acne team), stylists, recently graduated art-school types and super hot cis athletic guys. All of this goes down against a backdrop of equally cool jams (thanks to DJs like Wrecked, Stretch Armstrong, and Mazurbate), and a world-class view of the NYC skyline and harbor, which obviously makes it great fodder for photo-taking.
