Traditional 2015-16 Away Kit for Lille OSC Inspired by Local Heritage

Classic white 2015-16 away kit evokes local pride.

Lille OSC away kit

The new kit's body is white, Lille OSC’s traditional away color. It unites light grey shoulders and sleeves with black and yellow detailing on the sleeves and collar. A yellow stripe runs down the shirt’s flanks and continues down the sides of the otherwise white shorts. The new socks are white with a yellow band at top and a wide vertical stripe of tonal chevrons on the back of the calf. 

The new away kit is available starting July 23 at Nike.com and select retailers.

A proud symbol of the club, the new kit is also progressive. It offers the latest in Nike 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 lightweight solid fabric on the sleeves and front combined with a full mesh back panel to increase airflow and facilitate 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.
