Football x Fashion crossovers are here to stay.
From Paris Saint Germain’s long-running collaboration with Jordan to the recently released Off White x AC Milan collection, the worlds of fashion and Footy are more intertwined than ever.
And now, French side AS Monaco have also joined in on the action.
In this instance, the looks aren’t being provided by some high-end label, and instead come from Drole De Monsieur, who usually provide designs rife with nostalgia.
Established in 2014, the brand is known for apparel that proudly flaunts its Non-Parisian roots, offering 80s and 90s-inspired basics which often serve as a time capsule.
The label also carries a certain affinity for sportswear, which aligns with the themes a Football club aims to provide.
Spectating the elements from a vantage point may give the view of a perfectly poised collaboration, but frankly, this one could’ve easily gone wrong.
Nevertheless, we’re happy to report that the looks served up by Monaco Sponsors Kappa in cahoots with Drole De Monsieur are dripping with finesse.
The all-encompassing collection covers both on and off-field gear, with all the looks inspired by the French Riviera’s picturesque sights.
Debuted during Monaco’s recent fixture against Lille, the home kit brings forth an elegant look.
Featuring a diamond-laden graphic, the upper base is doused in Beige, while the lower half splits into three sections of even larger diamond patterns, colored in blue, brown, and beige.
The logos come in a Maroon shade, with further accents in the form of light blue sleeve cuffs.
The chic design features throughout the collection, including tracksuit tops, bottoms, and caps.
For those craving varieties, a solely maroon colorway has been provided for the base T-shirt. And the dye doesn’t stop there, as the shirt also comes in a fresh yellow shade.
The looks ooze tranquility and class and serve as a quick trip to an era gone by.
In a period where sporting a Football kit as fashion utility is as common as those annoying Tiktok challenges, this is a collection that manages to stand out.
It gets an instant cop from us, Kappa and Drole De Monsieur have struck Gold.
