Balenciaga‘s Fall/Winter 2020 runway show presented lots of sportswear inspiration, and now the Demna Gvasalia-helmed house has dropped its divisive football jersey.

In Balenciaga’s high-end, luxurious interpretation of the beautiful game and its kits, you’ll find all of the typical design elements of a soccer jersey — only elevated. It’s made from mid-weight premium cotton that’s cut wide and boxy, featuring drop shoulders and a stand collar to help it further blur the line between sportswear and streetwear-indebted luxury.

Three different styles of branding appear on the front in place of would-be sponsors and team crests, while on the rear the brand has added its moniker alongside the player number, “10.” A Balenciaga-branded patch featuring a rainbow grid and a football appears on the left arm, while white panels cut through the top’s black base to give it even more sporting prowess.

Balenciaga’s football-influenced T-shirt retails for $780 USD and can be bought from stockists such as MatchesFashion.com now. Take a closer look at the piece above.

For something a bit more authentic, here are Nike’s 2020 home and away jerseys for England and France.
