World News – United States – Man United, Arsenal, Juventus, Real and Bayern get a makeover with Adidas kit via Pharrell


FC guys don’t hold back when they weigh on Manchester United’s new Zebra-esque third kit (1:04)

Adidas has produced a special line of custom hand painted jerseys for a selection of the best football clubs in the world

In collaboration with singer, songwriter, record producer, fashion designer and entrepreneur Pharrell Williams and his creative label Humanrace, each shirt is inspired by the club in question and significant moments from their respective histories

The Adidas x Pharrell Williams ‘Humanrace’ line of outfits has been designed for Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Manchester United and Real Madrid, as well as London base club Romance FC

The aforementioned moments and memories have been retro-designed and reworked in a raw and expressive way to reflect contemporary football culture, as interpreted by Pharrell and the Humanrace design team

« History is what shapes the future, and sometimes in order to look forward we have to look back first, » Pharrell said of the collection

« The most important part of the process with this collection was to discover the heritage of each club and how every defining moment in their history was captured and preserved from a design perspective

« Each of the new shirts is a symbol of the heritage of the five clubs and a true celebration of the universality of sport »

It all started with Pharrell tracing the Adidas archives and picking the cult classic Arsenal « bruised banana » jersey from the early 1990s as a starting point

The iconic zigzag pattern was then reworked with a ‘bleed’ effect (with spray paint and stencils) to give the jersey a washed out and watery look, along with the club badges and crest hand engraved on the chest

Another classic Premier League away kit was picked up for United’s offer, with Pharrell selecting the popular 1990-1992 white and blue ‘snowflake’ jersey to remix it

Still a favorite among United fans to this day, the design was originally born out of the « Madchester » house music scene that swept the city in the late 1980s and has now been brought to life. day with a marbled tie-dye effect

Bayern saw their 1991-1993 home jersey selected from their back catalog to undergo the Humanrace treatment, with a bold, blocky design reimagined using dabs of thick acrylic paint

Rather than their famous black and white stripes, Juventus saw their vibrant pink 2015-16 jersey undergo a spotty artistic overhaul – most likely as it marks a treble season and also the first year of the Italian club’s kit partnering with Adidas

To complete the main collection, Pharrell decided to use a Madrid shirt which was itself originally created by his friend and former collaborator, Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto

An instant hit at the time, Los Blancos’ 2014-15 Away Kit featured a mystical graphic drawn by Yamamoto, with two dragons entwined around each other on a black field – a symbol of glory, of honor and power

Pharrell and Humanrace adapted the illustration using a water technique to smear the intricate design to the point of being almost unrecognizable

London base team Romance FC have also had a bespoke jersey created to play this season, which will make almost any opponent massively jealous as they are in such illustrious company.

Indeed, the Adidas x Pharrell Williams « Humanrace » jerseys will serve as exclusive clothing for Arsenal and Manchester United ahead of their Premier League matches in October 24

Real Madrid and Juventus will wear their creations in matches in October 25, and Bayern Munich will play theirs in their next domestic cup match
