Christmas came early for students at Boylan Catholic High School when former student and current Louis Vuitton menswear artistic director Virgil Abloh kitted out the senior soccer squad with gifts from a Nike x OFF-WHITE collaboration set to arrive later this summer.

Abloh graduated from Boylan in 1998 before going on to complete an undergraduate degree in civil engineering at the University of Wisconsin. Usually, Boylan’s team plays in green and white, but next season it looks like it’ll be sporting the black, white, and orange pictured above.

If one were to speculate, you could say Abloh’s designs are inspired by soccer jerseys from years passed. The black and white checks resemble the bombastic red/white check of the Croatian national side, while the OFF-WHITE branding bears hallmarks of the s.Oliver sponsor that appeared on German outfit Borussia Dortmund’s shirts back in the late ’90s. The crest, meanwhile, appears to be inspired by the Dutch Republic Lion, which features on the Netherlands shirt. Check out the below gallery for comparisons.

It seems new OFF-WHITE gear is set to drop ahead of the World Cup, which kicks off on June 14. The jerseys could be part of the mooted “soccer pack,” which is also said to include everything from cleats to goalkeeper gloves (as seen here).

Will you be copping a top when they drop? And who do you think will win the World Cup? Let us know in the comments below.

Staying with football, here’s why Zlatan Ibrahimovic is perfect for the MLS.
