Humanrace x adidas Football Jersey 'Arsenal'



Humanrace x adidas Football Jersey 'Arsenal' (GJ9082)

Working closely with each of the five teams, Humanrace FC brings together the clubs for the first time in a shared celebration of the human spirit. Pharrell and the adidas design team’s joint ambition was for this to demonstrate football is for everyone and the human race at its best – uniting together while celebrating our differences.

With a repurposed Arsenal shirt, Pharrell explored the adidas archives to select one of the most recognized kits from the London club’s history, the ‘bruised banana’ jersey from the 1991-3 seasons, giving it a hand painted, paint-bleed effect update. The distinct zigzag graphic features on a treasured jersey for the club’s fans not just for its forward thinking and distinctive style, but also worn during a season where the club won the coveted domestic cup double.
