France New 2014 Home Kit
Price : BND109.00, Sizes Available : S, M, L & XL
After the final whistle at an ecstatic Stade de France, members of the French National Team – Franck Ribery, Blaise Matuidi, Yohan Cabaye and Raphael Varane – unveiled the new French National Team home kit to be worn in Brasil this year. Combining the best in performance innovation with insightful design details, the new French kit captures the innate style and national pride of France with a sophisticated look.
The fabric detail of the French National Jersey is inspired by the story of Nîmes, a town in the south of France. Nîmes was the birthplace of modern denim, and the fabric takes its name from the town (literally ‘de Nîmes’). Nîmes is historically known for its textiles and patterns and the landscape of Nîmes is said to have inspired today’s rugged denim as well as the silk shawls worn throughout Europe in the 18th century. This paradox between raw denim and elegant silk mirrored Nike designers’ desire to create a beautiful design aesthetic for the French home shirt.
