adidas Football released the new away kits for Juventus, Bayern Munich, Benifica and AC Milan on Sunday.

The gallery above features all the kits sported by some of the players.

Here’s what inspired the designs.

JUVENTUS

Italian giants, Juventus have their jersey inspired by one of the club’s golden eras.

The new yellow and blue away jersey for the 2017/18 season takes inspiration from the Bianconeri’s classic away shirts from the 1980s.

The kit pays homage to Turin, with the blue and yellow colours closely associated with the city. They are also colours worn by some of the biggest legends in the club’s history.

BAYERN

The Bayern design will be recognisable to fans, as it is based on one of the club’s most loved kits. An example of this design-meets-performance approach comes with the red stripe across the shirt.

It is made of a highly breathable mesh material, allowing for better air circulation keeping players cool and on top of their game in any conditions.

BENFICA

The Benfica kit is nspired by a shirt design from the 1960s, the home jersey features a classic red polo design with white collar, similar to the model with which Eusebio made his Club debut in 1962.

The jersey also has a tag at the bottom, which honours the former Benfica great, saying simply: Eusebio, the King. It is a symbol of respect to the player that would have turned 75 this year.

In keeping with the original 1960s design, the new jersey features red stripes on the shoulder, which highlights the official colour of the Club and the SL Benfica logo takes an oval shape, akin to the 1960s replica.

AC MILAN

Milan’s kit celebrates the past and present of a football icon, with a new retro graphic design created to match contemporary street style.

The new away kit retains the style DNA of the Italian giants while integrating a modern trend in a retro graphic design. For the kit, adidas Football designed a graphic pattern to bridge the gap between the past and the present. The graphic is built around a recurring “M” logo.

The logo is inspired by a red and black “M” taken from an AC Milan document from which the club approved a logo for the shirts for the 1982/83 and 1983/84 seasons. This logo has been re-imagined for use in the pattern.
