Few days ago we talked about the rise of vintage football kits and today we’re back with the official confirmation from London-based Arsenal FC. “Bruised banana” pattern is back and is gonna be one of this season’s killers.
Since being announced this summer, the frenzy to get the new version of the famous “bruised banana” kit has raised these days like crazy. The official released came with an eclectic video inspired by the 90s aesthetic, presenting, not only the shirt, but a full collection including tracksuits and crewnecks.
Already available at selected Arsenal stores and adidas locations, the visual campaign brought some of the most popular faces in the North London area like Hector Bellerín (@hectorbellerin) aka “best dressed footballer alive”, Alexandre Lacazette, David Luiz, Gunner legend Ian Wright or even James “The Beard” Harden. Female Gunner Leah Williamson (@leahwilliamson) or singer Bakar (@bakarrrr), responsible for the teaser’s song, also starred in the funny audiovisual piece.
The blurry zig-zag design is an obvious reminder of that bruised banana pattern from 91 to 93 that through the years has acquired the icon status in the vintage kits universe.
Will you be my yellow?
