Inspired by a classic tailored aesthetic but filtered through a modern street lens and colour palette, Nike unveil the Chelsea 20/21 away shirt, which is set to debut in tonight’s game against Crystal Palace.

Following on from the release of the Chelsea 20/21 home shirt recently, Nike unveil the Blues’ away shirt, building on the theme of the home look, which celebrates the capital’s love affair with the craftsmanship of master tailors. The away shirt effortlessly blends an aura of traditional London tailoring with the energy and colours of today’s SW6, but with an injection of millennial swagger.

Arctic blue provides a tasteful base colour for the jersey, with darker shades making up a disrupted herringbone knit which covers the front and back of the shirt to create a compelling aesthetic. A monochromatic club crest filled with a micro-herringbone pattern sits on the chest, alongside a dark blue Nike Swoosh. A dark blue V-neck collar and trim on the sleeves frame the design, while dark blue tape featuring the phrase, ‘The Pride of London’, runs down the sides of the torso. Arctic blue shorts and dark blue socks complete the head-to-toe look, with a Swoosh and a Chelsea lion placed midway up the shin.

Chelsea’s away is inspired by a classic tailored aesthetic but filtered through a modern, street lens and colour palette,” says Nike’s Scott Munson, VP, Nike Football Apparel. “This kit celebrates the style and creativity of the switched-on younger generation of SW6.
