It's one of the most distinctive designs in European football and it's unmistakable once again for the 2016/17 season. Monaco's red and white diagonal halves are refreshed for the upcoming Ligue 1 campaign.
The tonal gradient print connects the design to the principality's motor racing heritage. (Monaco has hosted one of the world’s most-famous Formula One Grand Prix races on its tight and narrow streets since 1929.) As an ode to club pride, the modern v-neck collar has a red band and "AS Monaco" knitted on the back. White shorts and red socks complete the look for one of football's most intriguing and unusually upper-class footballing environments.
The sides of the kit feature a red stripe that runs the length of the shirt that expands when the player is in motion. Season after season, the AS Monaco home strip matches the style savvy surroundings of the principality. Probably the only place in the world where someone can pick up a £90 matchfit replica shirt and think it's a bargain. It's a predictably tight design from Nike, but one with class.
