We’re really excited to be working with Cenk for our Residency series, and though we’re less than a quarter of the way through his designs, the results have already been incredible.
Alongside Cenk’s concept kits, we’re keen to find out a little bit more about what he loves about shirts. As is custom at the Football Shirt Collective, we decided to ask him about his favourite football shirt, alongside a couple of other things. Not only did Cenk highlight his first and favourite shirts, he also brought to light an interesting design feature about 90s Beşiktaş shirts...
My first shirt was the striped home kit of the Beşiktaş from 98/99 season.
If my memory serves me well my father gave it to me when I was 8 years old and this is one of my all-time favourites.
What is your favourite football shirt?
I'm a huge fan of black shirts and I would call myself lucky since I'm a Beşiktaş fan. Throughout our history, this (2014/15 away shirt) is the first black shirt with only red details and definitely at the top of my list. In my opinion, we should use red more on black shirts.
