Adidas Football has unveiled a new partnership with Pharrell Williams, who has designed jerseys for some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
For each of the teams — Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Manchester United and Real Madrid — Pharrell and Humanrace looked to the club’s history, reworking iconic shirts in a hand-painted aesthetic.
For Arsenal, the “Bruised Banana” away shirt of the early 1990s has been redesigned with a paint-bleed effect, while Bayern Munich’s 1991-93 home shirt was the basis for one kit.
The new Juventus kit is an update to 2015/16’s pink away shirt, Manchester United’s is based on the blue and white snowflake pattern work from 1990 until 1992 and Real Madrid’s is a homage to the Yohji Yamamoto-designed kit worn by the club in the 2014/15 season.
As well as designing kits for five European giants, Pharrell and Humanrace also partnered with Adidas for two jerseys to be worn by London-based community team Romance FC. The two kits feature different interpretations of a zig-zag pattern, with the hand-painted effect bringing in Romance FC’s usual rainbow colours.
Arsenal, Manchester United and Real Madrid will wear the designs as pre-match jerseys beginning on October 24, while Juventus will sport its kit in-match on October 25 and the Bayern Munich design will make its debut during the club’s next knock out game in the domestic cub.
