'From Sky to Sea We Prosper' is the mantra in which Vancouver Whitecaps have launched their 2016 home kit. A tidy shirt of multi-layered features, it's a right treat.
Bringing a lifestyle-meets-performance cut from adidas, the 2016 Vancouver Whitecaps home kit is the next to land on the MLS doorstep. Perhaps 'stoop' is a little more apt. Either way, this round necked and buttoned collar is one of retro class, but with its vibrant colour tones, it's a vocal performance on the eyes.
Inspired by the beautifully diverse landscape that surrounds Vancouver, the shirt is an apt tribute to the way the local land lies. Tasteful too, there's a number of lock-up motifs that bring this home for its owner. The colour gradient blending from 'sky to sea', through to the sharp '1974' works as a postage stamp of history. Right on point with a cut that'll go down well on both pitch and at the pub, the video up top goes behind the scenes of the official photoshoot.
A little footnote of thought too, the video signs off with a $39/per month for a membership message. A refreshing way to look at the way season tickets are sold. Nicely done Whitecaps.
