And here’s another…..Nike’s new France Home kit that will get an airing at Euro 2012.
A departure from traditional blue and white, the new attire for Les Bleus is inspired by military uniforms. The body of the shirt boasts a tonal print of the mariniere, an iconic French design consisting of thin stripes, alternatively in Meteor Blue, the colour of the traditional French shirt, and then lighter Pacific Blue. Or Bleu.
On the cuff of both sleeves is a hexagon to represent France which contains three tones of gold to echo the national flag the Tricolour. Inside the back of the neck runs a thin red tape with the message “Nos differences nous unissent”(Our differences unite us), proudly celebrating the diversity of the French nation, which went right out of the window on Raymond Domenech’s watch.
