Aston Villa Football Club have released their Macron home kit for their 2014/15 English Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup campaigns. It will be available at World Soccer Shop, Subside Sports, UK Soccer Shop and Kitbag along with the rest of the Villans’ match and training ranges for next season.
According to the AVFC website: Villa worked closely with Macron, who are also partners with Napoli, Lazio and Monaco, to design a new home kit that complemented the longstanding traditions of the club while, at the same time, remaining in the forefront of sports technical fashion.
The new home kit will maintain the classic, yet custom, claret in the body of the shirt, which will be divided by subtle vertically sublimated pinstripe in sky – the same that will also be present in the sleeves of the top.
The shirt is a slim-fit design to silhouette the athletic physique of the players, along with axilla micromesh inserts to maximize breathability of the top to enhance performance.
The shirt, naturally, features the iconic Villa lion crest alongside the logo of Macron.
The collar is a modern adaptation on the classic polo neck, with detailed embroidery down the neckline and button-hole design.
The sleeves are in contrast – sky/claret – with a cuff insert for maximum comfort.
To celebrate the club’s beginnings, an emboss of when the club was established “EST 1874” has been included.
Finally, to identify this as an authentic Villa/Macron product, there is the custom Villa “official team equipment” hologram on the front, at the base.
