Where the runway meets the street

Yesterday, Nike released the French Football Federation away kit. It’s the second official kit launch in the partnership (which began in January), and takes inspiration from the timeless “mariniere.” A French style icon, the shirt came to life as a 19th-century navy uniform and soon took hold as a symbol of French culture. Add a healthy does of “Considered Design” – the shirt is constructed of all most completely recycled material – and you’ve got a strong mix of icon and innovation.

The kit debuted in this striking photographs by legendary Karl Lagerfeld of Alou Diara.
