Allez Balenciaga FC! The new Soccer Series is out

Too impatient to wait for the next World Cup? Yeah, us too, but Balenciaga have come through with its new Soccer Series, giving the blokecore trend a Demna-ified and oversized makeover. 

The Spanish House serves us with a collection that offers all your football classics, such as the wool scarf, short and long-sleeved jerseys, tracksuits, sweatpants, and socks, all marked with piping details or marked with logos reminiscent of your favourite football club. 

In fact, in the spirit of local support, Balenciaga is making a selection of its new collection products ready to rep your city, more specifically Aoyama, Barcelona, Beverly Hills, Dubai, Ipanema, Mayfair, Miami, Milan, Paris, Seoul, Shanghai, Soho, and Tokyo. Tops also include the number 10 on its back, representing Balenciaga’s iconic Paris address, 10 avenue George V.

Ready for on and off-the-pitch duties, the new collection bridges the ever-so-little gap between sports and fashion, by adding brimmed caps and hoodies to the mix. Available in black, red, pink, and fluorescent yellow, the capsule collection embodies the spirit of (at times) supportive chants, whistle blowing, beer spillage, and the overall culture of football, while adding its classic Balenciaga twist.

We tested out Balenciaga’s Soccer Series by sending out Aura Arif and Luca Buddenhagen on a keepy uppie and elastico mission which involved more modelling than actual football playing – and yes you can do keepy uppies decked out in the new collection and while wearing the Balenciaga 3XL sneakers. Impressive, we know. Future Balenciaga FC recruits? We think so. Check out the result below.
