He’s a Grand Prix motorcycle road racer, a three-time MotoGP world champion, and a 23-year-old Spanish lad with a talent that wows the world and a face that swoons the crowd. He’s name is Marc Marquez.
Born in the Catalan town of Cervera, Marquez rode a motorcycle for the first time when he was four years old. At 15, he made his championship debut at the 125cc World Championship in 2008. Aside from his title in MotoGP class (2013, 2014 and 2016), he also currently holds two world championship titles, making him the youngest rider to get five World Championship titles.
Marquez also owns other long list of records—most of which for being the youngest to achieve something: “Youngest rider to win five successive Grand Prix,” “Youngest ride to win at least one race in three classes of GP Racing,” and “Youngest rider in the history of world motorcycling to get 50 wins,” among many others.
Blame it on his talent and multiple recognitions, but we can also argue that it’s because of his face that youth fashion label Pull&Bear teams up with Marquez to launch a collection that brings together the latest trends and the main identifying characteristics of a Spanish rider.
The young athlete will design his first collection in collaboration with Pull&Bear’s creative teams. The collection, composed of urban inspired garments, will feature some of the symbols that best represent Marquez: the number 93, the year of his birth; and the ant, the mascot that’s been with him since his first days in the racing world.
Non-motorcycle road racing fans will get to see more of this Spanish cutie as he will be the fashion label’s image in 2017 and 2018.
