After releasing their new home kit last month, Olympique Lyon and adidas have launched the seven-time Ligue 1 champions new away and third kits for the 2014-15 season. These two new kits complete a modern, elegant and innovative collection for the popular French side.
Olympique Lyonnais is clearly expressing its intentions with its new away kit for the 2014-15 season. Featuring a new design, the away kit lives up to the expectations of the club’s supporters which OL says is to give their opponents the “blues”. The shades of blue on the shirt are modern, in keeping with the image of the club and in accordance with current fashion color trends.
adidas has paid tribute to the supporters who will follow the team to away matches with a special message: “Nous sommes l’Olympique Lyonnais” (“We are Olympique Lyonnais”) printed inside the collar. The new away shirt was worn for the first time during Sunday’s 4-2 loss to Marseille.
The Olympique Lyon 2014-15 third kit features a special ribbed effect meant to give the look of modern armor. The button up collar of the shirt reinforces the avant-garde look of the jersey. OL says that thanks to this third kit, its squad can play the role of modern day heroes, looking to conquer the obstacles in the biggest competitions.
The inside of the collar also features the “We are Olympique Lyonnais” print and symbolizes the union between the Lyon players and supporters in important matches.
The Olympique Lyon 14-15 away and third kits both use adidas’ ClimaCool Technology that ensures ‘breathability’ and quick drying during match action.
