Chelsea launch new retro third kit

In a new clean design, the black kit that features bright orange trimmings represents the away shirt that was worn back in 1994 and 1996. An aesthetically pleasing design that the club notes will create nostalgia for the era when Netherlands legend Ruud Gullit lit up Stamford Bridge. 

The unique collar style has drawn mixed reviews from fans on social media, but one of the club’s rising stars believes it will appeal to all fans this season. “You can see the ’90s influence in fashion at the moment and I think the kit will appeal to pretty much everyone,” Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount told the club’s website. 

“Younger fans will like that it has a streetwear vibe and older fans will appreciate the sentimentality, remembering club legends who donned the famous shirt and their memories of going to games.” It also sports an ‘old school’ collar and a retro ‘Nike Futura’ logo along with a CFC pattern embossed across the stunning kit which is now available within their official online store. Chelsea FC is also printed across the neckline with the Nike logo imprinted above the crest of the Premier League giants. 

The kit is finished off with black shorts and bright orange socks – which also displays a Nike logo across the shin area.
