Producing some of the waviest shirts of the season? It’s a Chelsea thing.
Chelsea FC has released their highly anticipated third kit for the 2021/22 season with a design that looks to the outdoors and Nike’s iconic ACG line for inspiration.
The kit is reflective of the club’s modern era, an era epitomised by their youthful energy and determination to add more silverware to their already growing collection.
Nike worked with Chelsea fans in the fashion industry to inform the design, putting their fans at the heart of this kit. Injecting London streetwear sensibilities into the design with the inclusion of bold prints and colours that speak to the diverse cultural fabric of the Chelsea community, this shirt is wearable heritage.
Despite looking more turquoise in colour, “Green” and black are colours that have long been associated with staple Nike outerwear pieces. The crimson on the kit adds vibrancy and really makes the shirt pop, another indication of the club’s youthful and playful energy.
‘The Pride of London’ logo is visible on the inside of the shirt, serving as a reminder to the club’s values and status in the Capital.
Both authentic player and replica shirts are constructed with 100% recycled polyester fabric, made from recycled bottles. Recycled polyester reduces carbon emissions by up to 30%, a material Nike has been using since 2010.
Nike’s no compromise approach to performance and sustainability has been a beacon of light in the football fashion industry this season. The brand’s ‘Move to Zero’ initiative – a journey towards zero carbon and zero waste – is ‘Play New’ exemplified.
The 2021/22 Chelsea FC third kit will be available to Nike Members from today at nike.com and on full retail from September 2nd. Get a closer look at the kit below.
