Golden Details for 2015-16 AS Monaco Home Kit by Nike

Famed red and white shirt receives subtle design updates.

The new AS Monaco home kit for 2015-16 celebrates the prestige, glamour and elegance that are synonymous with both the club and the principality. 

Monaco’s traditional red and white diagonal halves design has been subtly updated with gold details. The new shirt boasts a gold stripe running along each flank, a gold Nike swoosh on the chest and a gold border around the club crest.

The shoulders and sleeves are incorporated into a single white panel, which matches the shirt’s clean, elegant and red & white back 

A two-tone aesthetic runs throughout the entire kit including the modern and lightweight v-neck collar with a red trim at the back of the neck. 

The home shorts are white, with gold stripes on each side that connect with the stripes on the shirt’s flanks.

White socks with a wide stripe of tonal chevrons running down the back of the calf complete the new home kit.

The new AS Monaco home kit will be on sale in stores and at nike.com starting June 25. 

While this new kit represents a proud symbol of the club, it offers players the very latest in performance innovation, fabric technology, moisture management and environmental sustainability. 

NIKE DRI-FIT TECHNOLOGY
 
Nike Dri-FIT technology draws sweat away from the body to the exterior of the shirts and shorts where it quickly evaporates. This allows players to perform at their best by remaining cooler, drier and more comfortable.
 
The laser-cut ventilation holes and mesh panels in key areas of the kit are designed to improve performance by increasing air circulation to the players’ bodies and helping regulate their temperatures.
 
The jersey is crafted using a full mesh fabric – this makes up the full front and back panel of the shirt, increasing airflow and facilitating enhanced movement.
 
SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION
 
Nike places sustainable innovation at the heart of its kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivalled performance and lower environmental impact.
 
Each piece of the kit – the shirt, shorts and socks – is constructed with recycled polyester, which is made from recycled plastic bottles that are melted down to produce fine yarn used to create the fabric. Each kit is made using an average of 18 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than 2 billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester – enough to cover about 3,500 football pitches.
 
By using recycled polyester, Nike is also reducing the energy consumed in the manufacturing process by up to 30 percent compared to virgin polyester. For more information, visit nikebetterworld.com.
