ARSENAL have launched a new retro clothing range under the direction of former star Ray Parlour.
The Gunners often bring out unique clothing items for fans to buy, such as their London Underground inspired Adidas range that was put on sale in January.
Arsenal’s iconic 2001-02 home shirt has been reimagined
A pop-up store was opened to help launch the retro collection
Oleksandr Zinchenko models a windbreaker
Ray Parlour was the creative director for the new range
The team has now added retro styles to their online store, all of which feature Arsenal’s recognizable former badge, which was retired in 2002.
Every article of clothing, including the renowned gold away kit from the 2001–02 campaign, is vintage.
The home jersey from that season has been replicated, which may not come as a surprise considering that Parlour scored in the FA Cup final that year to help Arsenal win the double.
‘Ray’s Fashion Parlour’s’ opening in Soho was recently celebrated by Parlour, the creative director of the launch.
Everything from tracksuit bottoms to varsity jackets, t-shirts, hoodies, and sweatshirts were available at the pop-up store.
Parlour said he was thrilled to honor a heyday in Arsenal’s history and that the new goods are also available on the interactive web store run by Arsenal Direct.
He said: “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!”
Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard modelled the new collection alongside defenders William Saliba and Oleksandr Zinchenko.
Eddie Nketiah also posed in the new gear, while Parlous channelled his inner Steve Jobs in a black turtle neck.
