Drenched in the purity of the Italian Alps and steeped in the alluring aesthetics of Monte Rosa, Juventus and adidas have weaved a scintillating tapestry of football and fashion for their 2023/24 away kit.
With a stark deviation from previous designs, this new kit embraces the breathtaking natural beauty of Turin and encapsulates it within an extraordinary sportswear innovation.
The bianconeri, as the Juventus football team is affectionately called, are no strangers to fashion. This time, however, they’ve shifted their sartorial sensibilities towards something quite out of the ordinary — the allure of nature and the majesty of the Alpine skyline. This transformation is as captivating as it is innovative, like a waltz between fashion and geography on a canvas of football.
This striking Juventus kit, predominantly white, is a tribute to the crystalline snowscapes of the Italian Alps. An awe-inspiring landscape where pristine snow blankets the craggy surfaces, much like how the bold grey hoops ascend the crisp white base of the jersey. Embedded within these loops is the iconic Juventus pink, its craggy texture mirrors the rocky face of Monte Rosa that proudly punctuates Turin’s skyline. The design narrative seamlessly evolves from the streets of Turin to its dominating alpine backdrop, presenting an aesthetic evolution that nods to the traditional while embracing the futuristic.
For the athletes on the field, comfort is paramount. With this in mind, adidas’ innovative HEAT.RDY technology has been incorporated into the on-field version of the shirt. It’s optimized to ensure players remain at ease while performing on the grandest stage of all. However, the tech innovation does not end there. The fan version employs AEROREADY technology that uses sweat-wicking or absorbent materials, keeping the wearer dry and comfortable.
Beyond aesthetics and performance, Juventus and adidas have taken a significant stride towards sustainability. The jersey is constructed from 100% recycled materials, a bold statement reflecting adidas’ unwavering commitment to help eradicate plastic waste. It’s a confluence of sports, fashion, technology, and sustainability – a quartet rarely seen harmonizing so eloquently.
Quote from the adidas team, “We wanted to capture the majestic Monte Rosa’s essence in our design, blending it with adidas’ commitment to end plastic waste. We believe we have created more than just a jersey; it’s a symbol of synergy between nature, technology, and the beautiful game.“
This exquisite kit will make its debut during Juventus’ upcoming pre-season friendly fixtures. Fans can purchase it from now via Juventus stores, selected adidas retail stores, and on adidas Juventus kits.
