Bordeaux have a storied (kit) history, like many French sides, so it was bound to be fun. But this much fun?
Highlights included, but were certainly not limited to, CBDesign12 referencing the mid-nineties in style and colouring, but adding the iconic chevron, a Bordeaux (colour) and gold (metallic) masterpiece from NSGraphics, darkghoste bending our minds by creating both a chevron and pinstripes from negative space - much more from them, please! - and the genius idea from KitKong to turn a map of Bordeaux 90 degrees so the Garonne river becomes the chevron!
The voting numbered twenty-two entries and the vast majority - if not all - would have been worthy winners. As it was, a very stylish creation from cukun - then “Silky Smooth” - which, as was the case with others, featured adidas’s latest branding approach, was top dog. Deserved, and we were blessed with the glorious fantasy adventure in Conceptland that got us there.
