It all starts at school…or in the garden…or at the park. No pitch, no nets. Just you and the goalposts. Dreaming about your heroes, the goals you will score, your way to celebrate, the trophies you will win. Sharing and creating memories with your brothers, your sisters, your mates. Wearing your heroes shirt, from your team. All the while the constant remains, jumpers are still the goalposts. Whilst you grow older and the game changes…evolves…moves on, you cherish the memories of the goals scored, the memories…
The collaboration’s first offering sees some of the most iconic 90’s football shirts, sporting nostalgic colourways from the most globally recognisable teams. The Lyle & Scott x Lover’s FC collaboration gives these classic shirts a new lease of life, with designs being re-imagined using textured and premium Italian merino wool. Resulting in a limited-edition collection of novel and nostalgic garments that combine Lyle & Scott’s heritage knitwear expertise with bold & punchy graphics, reminiscent of the glory days of football.
Lover’s FC founder Neal Heard has built a career from his love of sneakers and football.
