hummel are back in the Premier League! Last month, Everton announced their new three year deal with the Danish manufacturers, who will be kitting out a top-flight English side for the first time since the 2006-07 season when they were designing for Aston Villa.
Inevitably, this has led to loads of concept designers putting their spin on what the new kits could like. There have been some great concepts put out by the likes of @twitkits1 and @design_utd, but the stand out for us so far has been the @KonceptKitz Everton x hummel concept. Let’s take a look at their Everton concept which has been gaining a lot of traction in recent weeks!
By not moving away from Everton’s classic blue and white colour scheme, the shirt has a traditional look to it, but the eye-catching features all come from hummel’s trademark arrows.
An essential feature on any hummel kit, the arrow trim design runs over the shoulders and down the arms of this concept. A more subtle use of this feature also appears on the body of the shirt, with a faded arrow pattern running diagonally across the shirt. Much like the three-stripes on adidas kits, this feature is instantly recognisable and lets you know exactly who designed the shirt.
For the shirt collar, @KonceptKitz have returned to a more classic single button collar. Considering that both hummel and Everton had their hey-day during the late-80s and early-90s, the inclusion of a more classic element for the collar fits nicely.
Finally, another subtle but effective feature comes on the sleeve trim. The white trim helps break up the shirt’s all-blue design, while also referencing the year of the club’s founding with an 1878 patch featured on each sleeve. Everton are a club with strong historical connections, and so this again seems like a fitting feature for the club and the shirt.
What do you want to see from the Everton x hummel partnership?
With the release of kits for the 2020-21 season hopefully only a matter of weeks away, we are excited to see what hummel produce in their new partnership with Everton. If the Danes decide to take any inspiration from Everton’s fans and fellow concept designers, then they will certainly have a lot of material to work with.
