Edinburgh's volcanic heritage shapes rebranded kits by Macron

With the 2018/19 season just around the corner, Edinburgh and the club’s technical sponsor Macron - leader of the international teamwear market - today unveiled the new playing kits that the capital club will wear in the 2018/19 Guinness PRO14 and Heineken Champions Cup season.

The new campaign coincides with the restyling of the club’s logo, which mixes traditional colours (navy and white) with the modern addition of orange. The fresh new brand has inspired the designers at Macron to create a unique and exclusive collection.

The home jersey is body fit and the main fabric is Armevo. The principle colour is navy blue with a white trim around the sleeve cuffs and around the base of the garment. Inside the polo collar, is an orange tape detailing the year of the city’s first representative match in 1872.

The Macron logo is on the right of the chest with the club’s rebranded logo - which represents the turrets of Edinburgh castle, the volcanic origins of the city and the year of the city’s first game – on the left.

The same orange colour is in the graphic pixel detail on the front of the jersey, taking inspiration from the volcanic lava which went onto form the bedrock of Scotland’s capital city. The kit is finished off with navy blue shorts with orange details. The socks are blue with two horizontal stripes around the top, whereas around the middle are the Edinburgh and Macron logos.

The Away kit is white with navy blue shoulders, featuring the same orange pixel effect fading into navy blue across the sleeves. Inside the navy blue polo collar is an orange tape with the year of the team’s first match. On the front, on right, is the Macron logo, whereas on the left is the club crest.

The shorts are white with orange inserts on both sides, whereas the socks are white with two navy blue and an orange stripe. This garment has the same technical features as the home kit. Both the home and away shirts are also available in a replica version with a supporter fit.
