“We were inspired by the link between the sport of football and the world of art – both places where passion leads to great acts of creativity. Motivated by our 2014 global football campaign, the Pepsi ‘Live for Now’ Capsule Collection brings the best of art and football to life,” said Kristin Patrick, Pepsi Global Chief Marketing Officer, PepsiCo Global Beverages Group. “Our first-of-its-kind art collection, ‘The Art of Football,’ was unveiled in a gallery, then spread across the streets of the world with our out-of-home campaign and now as a collection that a young, style-savvy generation will covet. Pepsi has been a cultural icon for many years and today we celebrate the ability of our brand to find a new place in consumers’ hearts and minds.
