France debuts new 2014 home jersey

Les Bleus are going to Brazil in this elegant home jersey from Nike.

After the final whistle at Stade de France, once France had secured it’s ticket to the 2014 FIFA World Cup™, members of the French National team – Franck Ribery, Blaise Matuidi, Yohan Cabaye and Raphael Varane – unveiled the new French National Team home kit.

This is a soulful, sophisticated home jersey was designed with the French National Team’s players in mind.


Martin Lottie, Creative Director for Nike Football, said when the Nike team was designing the home kit, they looked and what French players were wearing off the field, and saw that they favored a “classic, hand-crafted kind of style”. France’s national jersey reflects the country’s affinity for luxury, tailored fit and attention to detail.

The fabric detail of France’s new home shirt is inspired by the town of Nimes, a town in the south of France. Nimes is the birthplace of modern denim, (literally, “de Nimes) and is famous for it’s patterns and fabrics.

577924_410_BNike’s designers used 3D body scans of elite players to determine the best fit for modern athletes, which yielded an updated fit, more comfortable fit.

This new jersey features a redesigned national team crest. The revitalized team crest is inspired by the 1958 one, with a larger cockerel-design without the encircling badge. The flag is inside of the neck, to keep it close to fans and players, and reflect national pride.
