Nike and Martine Rose have teamed up to launch a special edition England jersey. The garment is inspired by the story of the Lost Lionesses, the unofficial England women’s team that played in the 1971 World Cup and received a hero’s welcome at the championship in Mexico.
The unisex jersey is reversible, with one side celebrating the Lost Lionesse through a badge and the number 71 standing out in the center. The other side of the shirt is more similar to the official England kit, although it features a subtle tribute to the “Lost Lionesses” and a message wishing “all the best”, a detail from Martine Rose.
Along with the jersey – which comes with an intentionally oversized cut – Nike and Martine Rose have also unveiled a special edition cap, featuring an all-white construction, frayed edges and a white badge.
The Martine Rose x Nike soccer jersey is available for pre-order until July 10 at the Martine Rose webstore.
