Fashion, like architecture, reflects a moment in time. It is obvious that the current culture impacts fashion, but the production techniques of the time play an important role, as well. Fashion is a powerful force, and the influence of sport combined with fashion takes this influence to another level. What one wears is a reflection of the unseen, and unseen interests are the building blocks for connections. On a global level, there may be no more powerful article of clothing than the soccer jersey. Though it is only one item worn on part of the body, it has the power of uniting and inspiring people of all different walks of life.
We will explore the most iconic kits in the history of the sport, and this will help us understand where the sport that we love is headed in the future.
