Yesterday France secured their ticket to Brazil next year with a 3-0 victory against Ukraine. And now Nike present the brand new national team shirt, which France will wear for the World Cup next year. The shirt is simple, stylish and naturally all blue.
There is a World Cup party going on in France today as they have managed to qualify for the World Cup next year. Just 24 hours ago it did otherwise look very tough in terms of their dreams of Brazil. After a 2-0 loss in the first qualification match against Ukraine, yesterdays match was looking more then difficult. They needed a victory on Stade de France, and it had to be big.
The French managed to keep calm and delivered what was needed. The match ended 3-0 to France, and the World Cup party was on. Nike also decided to join the party, and now present a brand new and stylish national team shirt, which the blue army will wear when the battle is on in Brazil.
Simplicity and style have always been keywords when the French national shirt has been designed, and this time Nike have done their very best to add new dimensions to the dominant elegance. The shirt displays the classic blue France colour, and has been stripped of distracting elements.
Nike have found the inspiration for the shirt in the city of Nimes in southern France. A true fashionista will recognise the name as the city where the modern denim was born, and also the place where silk shawls originated, and where very much used in the 1800 hundreds. The contrast of the raw denim on the one side and the soft silk has inspired Nike as they designed this shirt.
Later today we will take a closer look at the new French shirt, including the details and the elegant result of Nike's work.
The new France shirt shall be exciting to follow, when the summer comes and it's time for the World Cup in Brazil. It is surely a piece of elegance that Nike have come up with for this one.
