FLAMENGO SEMPRE EU HEI DE SER
Whilst designing as part of the adidas team, the founder of Dilley Studio, Marcus Dilley, designed the home shirt for Brazil’s largest football club: CR Flamengo.
Since Flamengo returned to adidas in 2013, every kit used an interrupted hoop design that utilised a side panel. It was our goal for 2017 to create the first full hoop design. This was accomplished using a cut and sew design that used a bespoke performance mesh created solely for Flamengo to represent the 1980’s AirTech jersey by adidas. Thanks to a custom bottom hem construction, this jersey contains the same aesthetic over all sizes. To complete this jersey, a brand new club mark was created to sit on the back neck. The “Urubu” designed is a cleaner, less cartoon version of the club’s mascot and it has since been carried over to the new 2018/19 kits.
