Football and fashion have gone hand in hand for decades. In recent years though we seem to have found that crossovers happen more and more. We have picked 10 that we think are worthy of any catwalk.
Napoli x Marcelo Burlon - During the 20-21 season Napoli teamed up with fashion designer Marcelo Burlon who created a limited edition kit which featured his famous bird design on the shirt. The kit was limited to 1000 pieces for the outfield shirts & only 200 for the GK version.
Ajax x Daily Paper - Ajax x Daily Paper - Linking up with hometown label ‘Daily Paper’, Ajax released this stunning third shirt for the 22/23 season. The shirt features images of nine different football pitches that are located throughout Amsterdam. The shirt also features a retro Daily Paper logo.
Copenhagen x Wood Wood - Another football club and hometime label link-up was that of FC Copenhagen and Wood Wood during 12/13. The brand's creative director Karl-Oskar Olsen merged the club’s aways clours & described the project as a ‘dream come true’.
Real Madrid x Y-3 - Real Madrid have linked up with fashion brand Y-3 not once, but twice. The first time was for the 2014/15 third shirt and then again during the 21/22 season for a special edition fourth kit. Both designs were created by Y-3 creative director Yohji Yanamoto.
Vicenza x Diesel - As both the owner of Vicenza and label Diesel it surely made sense that Renzo Rosso would create a kit combining the two. Unfortunately for Rosso, the bold design didn’t go down too well with the Vicenza supporters who confronted him in the stadium car park.
Juventus x Palace - After previously collaborating with Umbro on a vintage England shirt collection, London-based skateboarding label Palace took it to another level with this immensely popular Juventus fourth shirt from the 2019/20 season.
Bari x LC23 - The aesthetically pleasing collection released by Bari & designer Leo Colacicco is a favourite of ours here at Retro Football Kits. Referencing both the city and club nickname whilst also using the beautiful 90’s Kappa templates, they are stunning.
Monaco x Drole de Monsiuer - Managing to fully encapsulate the style that radiates from Monte Carlo, Drole de Monsiuer released not only a beautiful shirt but followed that with a breathtaking collection for the Ligue 1 side. The diamond motif and colour palette are a winner.
Pharrell Williams x Adidas - Being synonymous with style & culture, Pharrell Williams’ collaboration with Adidas and Human Race saw the reimagining of five classic football shirts worn by Adidas’ elite clubs with a beautiful handpainted aesthetic. All but two were worn in games.
PSG x Jordan - Since being launched in 2018, it’s fair to say that the PSG x Jordan partnership is the most popular crossover we have seen in football. It would be fair to say that the streetwear released has often matched the shirts the French giants have worn on the field.
