Nigeria’s world cup football kit up for design award
London, September 13, 2018 (AltAfrica)-The Super Eagles’ World Cup kit has gotten a nomination for the 2018 Beazley Museum Designs.
The jersey, which was designed by Nike, was named among the 87 nominees for London’s Design Museum‘s Beazley Designs of the Year.
The Super Eagles’ World Cup kit was named the tournament’s best kit by GQ.
Designs across six categories that include architecture, digital, fashion, product, graphics, and transport, are short listed every year since 2008 for the prestigious award.
London’s Design Museum has 87 nominees for its Beazley Designs of the Year – and included in the fashion category is Nigeria’s World Cup football kit.
The Super Eagles went out in the group stages of the tournament in Russia – but their outfits definitely won the fashion stakes.
The home and away shirts sold out on the Nike website soon after they were released – and there were long queues at the beginning of June in London with fans anxious to get their hands on the shirts:
All the contenders for the annual design award are on display at an exhibition until 6 January – and the winners will be announced on 15 November.
According to the Design Museum, hundreds of design experts from around the world nominate the most innovative and thought-provoking designs from the past 12 months for the awards.
