Photos: Sanchez, Giroud model Arsenal’s new gold away kit
Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud model Arsenal's new away kit for the 2015-16 season after it was unveiled on Tuesday
Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud looked sharp as they modelled Arsenal’s new gold away kit for the 2015-16 season.
Puma unveiled the kit on Tuesday through a live event powered by fans against Singapore’s stunning night skyline.
The new strip is a combination of both Arsenal and Puma’s heritage, with a design that reinterprets a classic Puma football graphic combined with an Art Deco ‘A’ which is inspired by Arsenal’s past.
The main body is a deep rich gold, an evolution of Arsenal’s traditional away yellow tones and it features a diamond graphic that repeats across the front and back panels.
“I really like our new away kit,” said Giroud. “The gold colour is very striking and has been associated with some great Arsenal teams in the past.
“I’m looking forward to playing in it for the first time against the Singapore national team tomorrow night.”
The design of the shirt has similarities with this season’s home shirt, which include Puma’s classic Form Strip as a mesh panel on the shoulders and the dropped back panel.
The neck is crew shaped with a v shaped insert and inal design details include gold trimmed sleeves and underarm mesh inserts for breathability.
