HUMAN RACE JERSEY
What differentiates soccer from other major sports is that the formation of clubs occurred long before the establishment of professional leagues. That means even the most massive, superpowered clubs can trace their origins back to the groups of enthusiastic factory workers or students who had no greater ambitions than playing this new game as much as they could. It’s why even the biggest globala names inspire a deep devotion in their fans.
Pharrell’s latest project for adidas expresses this intensely personal sense of affinity, through the hands-on, individual creativity of the Human Race imprint. Team shirts made from modern, recycled materials are outfitted with iconic past designs, which have been reproduced with hand crafted graphics, highlighting the boundary erasing human touch at the core of the global game.
An original, Human Race club shirt features a vivid, hand crafted application one of the most memorable three stripes soccer designs. Officially known in the adidas catalog as 'Ipswich,' the three dimensional, geometric cube design made a huge stir at the 1988 European Championship, where it was worn by the tournament's winners, the Netherlands, and runners up, the USSR. The pattern was further immortalized at the World Cup two years later, as it was sported by West Germany during their dramatic, semi-final shootout victory over England.
Of course, even without the specific affiliations, the Ipswich pattern stands alone as a bold fashion statement, that stands the test of time.
