Rumours suggest that while the 2020-21 Internazionale Home shirt from Nike will carry a serpent-esque zigzag pattern, there will be a less subtle “Il Biscione” flavour to much of the training and leisurewear ranges. Graphic designer and sportswear designer Emre Gultekin certainly didn’t hold back in that regard with these designs from way back in 2013.
Designed with the 2015-16 season in mind, the motif - the specific snake symbol of the city of Milan and Inter in particular - features heavily in this incredibly comprehensive proposal, not least via the texturing on the Home shirt.
Expanding upon the side panels of the 2001-02 version, the snakeskin detailing is uniform and restrained, but is still a starker nod to the club’s symbol than the 2010-11 first choice shirt - itself appearing to be influenced by an Umbro England goalkeeper shirt from the late 1980s. Indeed, Emre’s version would have been a better fit with the Biscione-centric Away shirt of the Milan side’s world-conquering year.
Emre’s own hooped Away suggests the equivalent Celtic change shirt of 2011-12, with obligatory snakeskin, as carries the quartered Third, and elsewhere we find gorgeous sashed and banded anthem jackets, along with tastefully retro stylings - of various moments in Inter’s storied history - on the other extensive collection items.
