The inspiration behind Arsenal‘s latest kits has been revealed.
The club has released a video showing the thought process that went into the designs for their new away and third kits for the 2016/17 season.
Puma kit designer Carl Tuffley talks fans through the design and colour schemes of the new strips and explains where the sports brand giants drew their ideas from.
At a first glance, the new yellow and grey away kit looks strikingly similar to previous ones released by the Gunners.
But Tuffley explains that while keeping with yellow away kit tradition at the club, the grey symbolises the concrete from their industrial roots in Woolwich.
Steering away from the idea of the past and club heritage, Tuffley also reveals that the alternate kit is completely inspired by a vision for the future and aimed at young Gunners fans.
