After subsequently leaving fans in the dark for months, the trio finally unveiled their partnership — which spans across both apparel and accessories items — during Juventus’ recent fixture against Genoa. The special collaborative range is inspired by adidas’ kit template from the 2006 World Cup that took place in Germany.
Along with a range of training jerseys, tracksuits, pullovers and accessories, a special-edition kit is also included, which takes influence from classic Juventus releases. The team managed to keep this fourth kit under wraps until the very last minute before kick-off when the players took off their new all-white training jackets, which are also part of the collaboration. The new jersey features neon hits of green on the Juventus badge, mismatching sleeves, names, numbers, and the Palace x adidas crest on the right chest. Additionally, the team’s signature black and white stripes have been rendered in a transfixing gradient. This all then translates to matching shorts and socks.
The training top comes in both a black and white colorway, which also incorporates the neon green detail. On the back large Palace branding has been placed between adidas’ Three Stripes insignia and a Jeep logo, Juventus’ main kit sponsor. The tracksuit jackets feature the same aforementioned colorways and logo placements and come paired with matching pants. Additionally, a pullover is included in the collection, which is quite reminiscent of a goalkeeper’s top. Finally, a co-branded football, beanie, backpack, hats and goalkeeper gloves round out this special collection.
In the past, Palace has also created two shirts inspired by the jerseys worn by Inter and Juventus in the 1980s. Palace joining forces with Juventus marks another venture of football turning to streetwear as the Italian giants will look to follow in the footsteps of Ligue 1 powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain who have sported Jordan Branded kits on the pitch during their recent campaigns.
Another noteworthy streetwear collab comes by way of Japanese award-winning designer Yohji Yamamoto who designed Real Madrid’s 2014/15 third kit. The limited-edition jersey was worn by football royalty such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Luka Modrić, making it all the more coveted.
The Juventus x Palace x adidas Football Collection will release at Palace locations and via the Palace web store and adidas.com, as well as Juventus stores and juventus.com. The collection launches November 8 in Europe and the US, followed by a November 9 release in Japan and China.
