Kerry GAA have just revealed a new kit designed by four-time All-Ireland winner and fashion mogul Paul Galvin.
The video was recently published on Kerry GAA’s Facebook page along with a statement from Galvin which can be read in full below;
“At the invitation of the Kerry County Board Chairman Tim Murphy, I have been working over the past few months on the new Kerry kit design for 2018/19.
Following Tim’s brief and working alongside O’Neill’s’ design and production teams while implementing my own vision for the jersey, it has been a great collaborative experience.
The new design is inclusive, rich in storytelling and strong in identity.
Inspired by the iconic 1985 Kerry jersey, the deep green and gold base with white trims was essential to re-connecting with Kerry’s identity while also helping to implement part of the County Board’s vision for the future in addressing the issue of number visibility for supporters. The rich color base and re-positioning of the number upwards provides greater definition and visibility of the numbers on the back. The slightly longer sleeves offer points of difference and style.
We hope that past players will recognise the new jersey as a symbol of respect, that current players will wear it as a symbol of pride and identity and that future players will want to wear it.
It was an honour to work on it”
