Another example of John Devlin’s True Colours in-depth looks at particular kits is this Umbro Everton Away design from 1992.

Worn as the Toffees made their Premier League bow in the inaugural season - 1992-93 - and as club legend, the late Howard Kendall brought his second spell in charge to a close in the following campaign, this striking outfit was not accompanied by great success.

Djurgardens IF have launched their new 2020-2021 Home shirt by adidas.

The Swedish side have the recognisable sky blue and navy blue stripes in a slightly restyled affair for the coming campaign, with the lighter shade blending into the darker on the upper portion of the shirt, and the adidas stripes on the shoulders in sky to contrast. The adidas logo appears on a dark stripe in white, with the crest on the opposite side in full colour (trimmed in gold).

The early-to-mid-1990s was a time of huge transition in football kits, as demonstrated by these Bourne Sports catalogue pages from 1993.

Kappa had recently taken over from Meyba in supplying FC Barcelona, and whilst the Athletic Bilbao and Juventus shirts had an understated and relatively timeless quality, there was a lot more embellishment on the Catalan club’s designs.
