The rise of footballing product in fashion circles has been strong this season, and a World Cup will only up the pace of stylish lifestyle-focused replica featuring across multiple environments on popular figures, as the pride kicks in ahead of the summer.

The message around the France home shirt is very much one of embracing cultural duality in the country and focusing on the next-generation of players and fans. Born in France to Congolese parents, Niska is part of an array of talent representing the tricolor in his respective field.
