While the 2018 Japan Home shirt took the show when adidas unveiled the kits for the forthcoming World Cup in Russia, the brand went one step further where presentation is concerned.

The shirt embodies a strong Japanese culture and with rich design means running throughout, every angle is considered. Design inspiration comes from traditional Samurai Armour and the use of graphics to depict stitching make this shirt a stand out head turner. The presentation piece is washed in minimalism as an all white box houses a 2018 home shirt.

Providing the perfect companion to the shirt, SHUKYU magazine also produced imagery to help visually tell the design story. Recreating a Samurai outfit that was given a three striped makeover, this one goes further than simply a shirt. A personified state of mind that people all over the globe will want to carry as well as wear when the tournament edges closer, adidas and the Japanese football federation have produced something special with this kit.
