Fashion and Football continue to grow together as each year passes. From special edition kits to pre-match slick designs, this article will look at the 10 best fashion and football collaborations.

NR x Patta


Dutch manufacturers Patta collaborated with NR to recreate Diego Maradona’s iconic Napoli jersey. This shirt is from the 1988/89 season, which finished with Maradona helping Gli Azzurri win the UEFA Cup.

This piece is sought after by many due to the fact NR remade the jersey as accurately as possible, leaving the shirt itself with a unique find.

Patta x Umbro


Patta are on the list once again, this time due to their iconic collaboration with Umbro. The two brands pay homage to Eredivisie clubs, showing off some of the best kit designs from the 90’s.

Unique patterns, cool designs and a slick look, this collaboration was simply brilliant.

Bape x PSG


In recent years, PSG have had many impressive collaborations. In 2018 the club linked up with Japanese clothing brand A Bathing Ape.

This collaboration created major hype in the football fashion scene. The released collection included a hoodie, multiple t-shirts, blue camo shorts, a draw-string bag and a long down jacket.  

Dsquared2 x Manchester City

Italian company Dsquared2 and Manchester City have been in a partnership since 2016. The Premier League champions get all of their pre-match travel clothes provided to them by Dsquared2.

Their latest collection includes a variety of jackets, coats, jeans and other apparel. The mixture of subtle and not so subtle branding gives this collection a great variety.  

Yohji Yamamoto x Adidas Real Madrid 2014

Renowned Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto linked up with Adidas and Real Madrid to create their beautiful third kit for the 2014/15 season.

As football kits and fashion began to grow closer, Adidas made sure to remain on top by releasing this outstanding jersey. The black jersey has immense design and stands-out from the crowd with ease. A graphic of a dragon king and a dragon bird are included on the front of the shirt, these were included to represent Real Madrid’s greatness, glory and power.

Inter x Moncler

Inter Milan’s collaboration with Italian fashion-house Moncler shows how football and fashion can go hand in hand with each other. Moncler and Inter released a Fall/Winter line together which went down a treat with fans.

The line ranges from winter jackets, hats, scarves and knitted jumpers that include the Inter and Moncler logos. A lot of these pieces were worn last season by players on their pre-match travels.

Palace x Umbro


Skateboarding company Palace have really delved into football in the past decade, collaborating with multiple clubs and sports companies. In 2012, Palace linked up with Umbro to pay homage to the England side from Italia ‘90. 

The shirts were inspired by England’s third strip from the time. Not many fans will forget the iconic blue gradient shirt with a slick navy collar. With how football and fashion has grown since this release, this collaboration was ahead of its time.

Nike x Off-White


World famous designer and Off-White founder Virgil Abloh collaborated with Nike to create a football-themed collection ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Titled “Football, Mon Amour,” this collection had everything from jerseys, goalkeeper gloves, footballs, hoodies, track pants and boots. PSG and France forward Kylian Mbappe was the face of the release.

The standout items from the collection were a black and white checkered jersey and two colorways of the Nike Zoom Fly Mercurial Flyknit and a pair of Mercurial Vapor 360 football boots. The boots included Virgil’s unique quotation mark design as well as white circles that outlined the best parts of the foot to strike the ball.

Palace x Juventus


Palace continued to make their mark on football with their 2019 collaboration with Italian giants Juventus. With stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Matthijs de Ligt all included in the promotion, this collaboration went viral.

The line included jerseys, jackets, goalkeeper gloves, pants and hats. The stand-out piece of the collaboration was the Juventus fourth kit which paid homage to the black and white stripes of the club with outlines of neon green to finish off the unique look.

The jersey debuted in a 2-1 victory against Genoa on 30 October 2019.

Jordan x PSG

The PSG x Jordan partnership has been simply era-defining. Ever since the two began collaborating in 2018, things have only continued to grow.

Jordan created PSG two kits per season, with the Ligue 1 club wearing them during their UEFA Champions League campaigns. In addition to this, Jordan and PSG have released an array of lifestyle leisure wear, ranging from tracksuits to hats and t-shirts.

This collaboration has been a continuous success which doesn’t look like it’s slowing down anytime soon. As football and fashion continue to grow closer together, the PSG x Jordan collaboration is an inspiration to many brands looking to break into the sport.
