The new England home kit will be used for the first time against Bulgaria at Wembley on Friday, September 3rd in Fabio Capello’s side first Euro 2012 qualification match.

According to kit manufacturer Umbro:

Giving the team a fresh new look, the new home shirt builds on the tailored principles behind the previous shirt and the current away kit, using the latest in design technology whilst adding a new, colourful graphic design to the template.

So what’s the thinking behind this design? The idea, another innovative approach to football kit design from Umbro, is inspired by the involvement of a true cultural icon in this particular project. Peter Saville — iconic graphic designer and all-round cultural connoisseur — has designed a special fabric print for the new kit, which features on the shoulder panels of the shirt.

Saville — who initially made his name through his work with Factory Records, and is now recognised as one of Britain’s leading creative minds — has crafted this design through a consideration of England’s cultural makeup. Inspired by the increasingly diverse fabric of England, the design takes the traditional St. George’s cross and reinterprets it as a reoccurring motif in four different colours — the traditional red, blue and green which feature in England’s three lions crest, plus a blend of all three which comes out as a striking purple.

Draped across the shoulders of the new shirt, the fabric print sees players and fans carrying the hopes of the nation with them wherever they go. Players names will appear within the fabric, to underline how they’re a part of the fabric of modern England. The shirt itself is inspired by the formal designs in England’s past, combined with the latest in design innovation.
