For Fall 2011, The Nike Sportswear Brasil collection continues to celebrates the country’s passion for the beautiful game. A unique graphic language reworks the canary (or canarinho) of the Brasilian jersey into “a symbol of everything the opposition fear when they face the yellow shirt.” Furthermore, they’ve brought the city of São Paulo’s coat of arms into the formula for a visually striking look.

Garment-wise, the collection includes camouflage versions of the AW77 hoodie and N98 jacket, a series of Canarinho-inspired polos celebrating some of Europe’s legendary football institutions, shield-printed Windrunners, as well as various shirts printed with the Portuguese for “Born to Play.”
