Roma unveil superbly simple white away kit



What you are feasting your eye’s on above is the brand spanking new AS Roma away kit for the 2016/17 campaign. And it’s made quite the impression on us.

Whilst many will be unenthused with the lack of ‘busyness’ aesthetically speaking, we think it’s simple but elegant marvel.

And Nike a commented in their effort thusly:


The new away kit is designed in a distinctive, warmer shade of white, one inspired by the colour of Rome’s cityscape and its ancient and iconic architecture.
The kit reflects both the beautiful mosaic of colours seen from the rooftops in Rome, and the marble, sand and stone used to build the ancient structures in the Roman Forum and all across the city.

The new away shirt is entirely in this new shade of marble white and boasts a modern crew-neck collar with a red band at the back, with ‘AS Roma’ etched on the shirt collar.

The sleeves and shoulders are also marble white, but in a separate panel that helps emphasise the power of the shoulders.

That up there is Roma’s new away kit for the 2016/17 campaign. Ain’t it purdy?

Being it the clubs 90th anniversary this season (for which Francesco Totti has been playing for 75 of those years), Nike have gone and left the balls out of the bath by paying homage to the city’s historic architecture – hence the marble-coloured strip.
