Nike Sportswear Arsenal 125 ‘Forever Forward’ Destroyer Jacket

In celebrating the 125th anniversary of London’s Arsenal FC, Nike Sportswear has created the Arsenal 125 Collection. The collection also includes a special edition NSW Destroyer Jacket.

The front of the jacket sees a bold felt and leather ‘A’ appliqué taken from the lettering in the club crest that featured from 1949 to 2002. The club’s Latin motto that also debuted that year is present as tonal embroidery on the right sleeve. It proudly proclaims Victoria Concordia Crescit that translates as ‘Victory comes from harmony.’ The bottom of the same sleeve also sees a direct embroidered ‘AFC’ graphic inspired by their late 70s cannon iconography

The left sleeve continues the appreciation of the club’s heritage as it features abstract references to crests of the past. Satin-stitched leather appliqués pay homage to the notable moments in the club’s history, including the 1930 FA Cup Final ‘Monogram’ badge and the 1952 FA Cup Final ‘Art Deco’ badge. The interior of the right lapel carries a striking homage to the 125th anniversary in the form of Roman numerals aligned in leather and satin to make up a ‘CXXV’ graphic, divided by gold embroidered accents.

The Arsenal 125 NSW Destroyer Jacket will be available (in an edition of 125) from 1948, FOOTPATROL and NikeTown London on Friday 29th July 2011.
