Scottish Premiership Team Returns To White
Nike has been hard at work creating a new kit for Scottish football team Celtic.
The sports brand has produced the Premiership club’s third set of shirts, shorts and socks, to be worn when first-choice and away colours are not in use.
The design is one of only a handful of all-white looks used by the top-flight team since its debut in 1888.
The v-neck collar features a gold band on the inside of the neck, mirrored on the upper chest running through the Nike logo and club badge.
Meanwhile, the team’s famous green has been used on the shirt cuffs and chest band, as well as on trims of the shorts and socks.
Designers at the sports firm have incorporated several performance, technology and environmental innovations.
Dri-Fit fabric draws sweat away from the body, aided by laser-cut ventilation holes and mesh panels.
With an emphasis on sustainability, Nike has manufactured the kit from recycled polyester, produced using an average of 18 old plastic bottles per kit.
The cut and fit has been updated with the help of 3D body scans, which allows for a tailored approach and increased mobility.
Celtic’s new third kit for 2014/15 will be available to buy in stores and from Nike.com from 11th July, price points are currently unconfirmed.
