Famed football club AS Roma resides in one of the world’s great cities. Its new away kit for the 2015-16 season takes inspiration not just from the club’s history, but also from its status as the “true club of the people” and from that great city itself.
The away kit’s white shirt boasts an elegant henley stand collar with hidden placket, affording the design a sleek, fashion-forward style, fitting with Rome’s famed sartorial sensibilities. Yellow and red cuffs finish the sleeves, tying in with the team’s traditional home colors, and a yellow stripe runs down each flank.
But the jersey’s real distinguishing feature is the actual sea of white fabric. Crisp and colorless, the material is tonally printed with a mural that honors Rome’s renowned architecture, millennia-old streets and lively neighborhoods. Never has imagery been simultaneously so ornate and so subtle.
