On Thursday, FC Barcelona received its new suits designed by Replay, which has been the club’s official sponsor of formal clothing since last July. The venue for the reception was Replay’s flagship store in Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona. Matteo Sinigaglia, director general of Fashion Box, which boasts a series of top quality denim lines under the Replay brand, was there in person to provide the Barça players and manager Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino with the new formal suits that they will be wearing this season, and which were specially designed for FC Barcelona.
The designers have produced a collection of formal clothing and a smart casual line to reflect the unique FC Barcelona style of play. Being such an innovative company Replay have devised a whole new way of using denim, in which the traditional jeans concept embraces the realm of fine tailoring.
The suit, in the typical slim-fit Replay style, includes a jacket with two buttons and applied pockets with an inner-lining in the traditional Barça shade of red. The look is finished off with Replay’s hallmark ‘R’ on the lapel and a small pin with the Barça crest on the silk tie. Last July and for the next four seasons, Replay will be the official sponsor of the suits that the first team and all the other teams at the club will be wearing.
According to Antoni Rossich, director general of FC Barcelona, the club is delighted with this agreement with Fashion Box, because the brand’s reputation and quality of the suits are so in keeping with the club’s own ideals. “The Replay design has character and presents a style we feel can identify with. It portrays dynamism, modernity and elegance at the same time. Fashion Box is a leading company in its sector and we share the international vocation of wanting to reach clients and supporters all around the world”.
