The future of French football recently unveiled the new national team away kit for 2014. France will compete in Brazil this year in an away kit that combines their style and flair for fashion with the best in performance innovations to produce an elegant new look. The "Marinière," a classic French design motif, makes a subtle return to the away jersey in the form of a tonal grey mariner stripe. The jersey also features a new crest, inspired by the classic cockerel worn by the French team in 1958. The away jersey has a stand collar, and inside the back of the neck is a small pennant featuring the red, white and blue colors of France’s tricolor flag.
The shorts are midnight navy blue and feature the same stylish and unique denim effect found in the home jersey. Along each side of the shorts is selvedge-style taping, inspired by the premium denim edge-finishing technique. "I love the new kit, simple and elegant. And not only does it look great on the pitch it also helps to keep us comfortable and focused on our game," said French player Raphaël Varane. The French national team away kit is now available at Nike to pre-order.
