The brand-new collection of the Lotto Sport Italia home kit for the 2008/2009 season was unveiled.
The Italian sportswear company, acting as Technical Sponsor and Official Supplier until 2013, will provide QPR with the apparel and accessories for matches, training sessions and leisure time, for the First Team through to the Centre of Excellence.
Created by Lotto's Research and Development Centre in close co-operation with QPR, the new team uniforms are the right fusion of designs characterising the Club in the past and the present, integrating the new Club crest.
The First Team kit features the traditional Hoops in reflex blue and white, as required expressly by the Club being its distinctive colours. However, the Hoops have been revised with new graphics enriched with silver details, visible on the front insert of the collar, on the stitching on the sleeve set-in and on the Club logo. This latter component, which is the new and innovative, has been translated into a high definition patch.
The shirt has a fitted shape fit and is made of Poly Tech Stretch, an extremely lightweight, breathable elasticised fabric that ensures maximum comfort and the least amount of fatigue during play.
The shorts come in two interchangeable colours, one in reflex blue and the other in white. As well as the Lotto logos on the side, the team crest stands out in a reduced and more proportioned size than on the shirt. The collection is completed by a proposal of leisure articles for the team: short-sleeved and long-sleeved polo shirts, as well as hooded sweatshirts in line with the streetwear fashion.
The articles are personalised by means of the crest on the back, created in silver with a ginned and antiqued effect. Carbon jersey, the fabric chosen for the polo shirts and sweatshirts, is a cotton treated with a special finishing which makes it particularly soft to the touch and give its a vintage look.
