Nike’s Clean New France National Team Collection Unites Two Generations of World Champions

Les Bleus' drip hits different 💧

September 1st 2020

Two generations of world champions have been united for France’s 2020 national team collection, with Nike celebrating the best of contemporary French streetwear and art throughout the clean new range.

France will take to the field in 2020 donning a red band, which stretches proudly across the chest of its home kit to signify fraternity – just like Les Bleu’s iconic 1998 World Cup-winning.

France’s new home jersey also takes its lead from the iconic marinière design with blue stripes flowing horizontally over a darker blue base. The kit is then completed with the FFF crest and a Nike Swoosh, with a squad number sitting below. Dark blue shorts and red socks with dark blue trim complete the look.

Speaking about the new jersey, France’s Golden Boy Kylian Mbappé said: “I think two years ago we brought the country together, just like back in 1998. Now we will wear a red stripe on our shirt just like they did. That was a great team, which created a legacy. Now is the time for us to keep striving to be the best and create one of our own.”

“The influence of 1998 remains really strong in French football, so it was great to link that to the brilliance of the current team in an exciting home identity,” says Scott Munson, VP, Nike Football Apparel. “With the away, the ‘flight white’ look really resonated with the players, and while numerous countries share the red, white and blue palette, only France will don white on white in Nike’s 2020 federation kits.”

The France home and away kits are available now from the Nike website, while the full collection is available in all Nike and partner retail stores September 4. Check out the new range below.
