Just in time for Christmas, Arsenal have continued a tradition from the last couple of years by unveiling their latest retro collection, which this time features lifestyle apparel inspired by the noughties.

A regular on the Gunners’ calendar is a dip into the archives for a retro collection, which normally arrives in partnership with adidas Originals. But this year the club have decided to go it alone… well, not entirely alone; they’ve enlisted the help of former player and club legend Ray Parlour… Sort of anyway. The Romford Pele has been brought on board as creative director for a cheeky video that introduces the collection, and it also features the likes of current players Eddie Nketiah, Willian Saliba, Martin Odegaard and Oleksandr Zinchenko.

The new collection delves back to the noughties – a time of great success for the club – and it features 11 items, ranging from varsity jackets to windbreakers, hoodies, tees and trackpants, in both adult and kid’s sizes, for men and women. 

For those looking to meet the man behind the collection, Ray will be at ‘Ray’s Fashion Parlour’ pop-up store on Soho’s Air Street in the heart of London, where the retro range will also be available to buy. The store will be open from Friday, 2 December to Sunday, 4 December. For those who can’t make it to London, there will be a virtual version of the shop that supporters can visit on Arsenal Direct. 

Speaking about the collection, Ray Parlour commented: “The noughties were a fantastic decade for Arsenal, so it’s great to be part of the collection that pays homage to one of our golden periods. I’m buzzing to open the doors of Ray’s Fashion Parlour to our supporters and give them a chance to get their hands on our new collection!"
