New Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio (FIGC) technical sponsor adidas Football today revealed the Italy 2023 home and away kits. The new Azzurri and Azzurre match range will make its on the field debut during tomorrow’s men’s Under-18 fixture against Spain.
According to adidas:
Much of the collection’s design is inspired by marble, a natural, geographical and cultural element that represents the whole of Italy and has been present in many monuments and places throughout the Italian Peninsula over the centuries.
The Italy 2023 adidas home kit, which boasts a blue color base as per tradition, sees marble, an element that is replicated on the fabric through manual work that combines traditional craftsmanship of raw materials and highly innovative techniques, as a focal inspiration on both jersey and shorts for a cohesive and beautifully integrated design.
In addition to the exclusive pattern, there are other references to Italian culture on the home jersey, such as the Tricolour details delicately inserted on the shoulders: an elegant borderline has been added to each of the three adidas stripes to recreate the colors of the Italian flag. The Tricolour is also present on the jersey sides and edging. Finally, the back of the collar bears the word ‘Italia’, completely customized with a clear reference to Roman engravings, the same approach used in the lettering of the players’ names and in the numbering of the jerseys.
The sleeves and collar are decorated with delicate but striking gold details, which embellish the kit as a reminder of the Federation’s successes.
The adidas logo and the new FIGC crest logo, released in recent days, are heat-applied and positioned on the front center at chest height.
The Italy 2023 away jersey is also strongly inspired by marble, that makes a bold return thanks to the light shade of the base: the predominant color is ‘off-white’, with a clear reference to the raw material that distinguishes the whole kit, embellished by the graphic design with navy blue and gold veining.
The away kit features the same Italy-related details, such as the Tricolour on the three adidas stripes and the ‘Italia’ lettering.
Both kits are created using the best adidas innovations, in particular materials that allow athletes to feel comfortable thanks to HEAT.DRY technology, optimized to provide players with maximum comfort and breathability during sports performance. The jerseys are made from 100% recycled materials.
The wider range complements the ‘Home’ and ‘Away’ with pieces including an anthem jacket, created in a unique double-sided design, and the warm-up products that share the marble aesthetic in a color palette that connects to the Italian Tricolour. Completing the collection is a range of training products, again in bold blue and white with accents from the Tricolour, that allow for one look and feel for the player across every part of representing the national team.
