Four-time English Premier League / First Division and and seven-time FA Cup and reigning UEFA Champions League champions Chelsea FC have unveiled their adidas 2012/13 away kit. It is now available at World Soccer Shop, Onionbag and Subside Sports.
According to press release from adidas: Chelsea Football Club and adidas today unveiled the new away shirt for the 2012/13 football season. The strip combines classic and modern, with an exclusive fading three-stripe design on the arm and a light aqua design element on the front of the shirt, which harks back to traditional football shirt design.
The new kit features the first ever fading three stripe design on any adidas designed kit. This exclusive design featuring traditional light aqua contrasts stylishly against the white detail of the shirt creating a jersey that successfully marries the modern and the classic.
These light and dark blue shades complement the classic Chelsea Reflex Blue colourway to include many of the colours associated with the club’s recent successes’.
The theme is reflected in the collegiate navy coloured Chelsea FC badge, applied with a white satin stitch on both the jersey and shorts. The stylish design is finished off by a collegiate navy rib on the ends of the sleeves and a light aqua piping around the v-neck collar.
