Spending many evenings playing under the East London skies in Hackney Downs Park, we pay homage to a place that’s close to our hearts. A fresh take on classic geometric abstractions, soft ombré with the sharpness of interlocking teeth; this jersey is for those with lots to say and games to play. Captured lovingly by SSS.
Since the very beginning of Romance FC’s journey, founder Trisha Lewis has envisioned producing a bespoke kit for the team. Now in collaboration with Nike Football, we've created a bold, visual kit – lead by designer/defender, Aimee Capstick.
The pattern used for the new kit, took inspiration from classic football shirts of the 80s and 90s. By alluding to designs of these eras, the angular jagged shapes and smooth colour gradients add a dynamic texture to the shirts.
The kit has been designed with a custom font for the numbers. As the largest typographic element, we wanted to mix the sharp interconnecting shapes of the pattern with something bold and modernist. Using a circle as the basis for most of the numbers, we were able to create a sense of movement and interconnection, plus a visual style we think represents our personality as a team.
