The club statement read:
Milan is a city rich with culture and history; it is a city of glamour and creativity, home to some of the world’s most beautiful and historic architecture. To celebrate the essence and culture of the city, the new Home kit pays homage to Milano tradition and its contemporary design.
The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is at the heart of the city, it offers a glimpse into the Milanese soul, complementing the city’s past with a modern approach to design. The Galleria is Italy’s oldest shopping mall, housed in a four-story double arcade in the center of Milan and is named in honor of the first King of Italy. The striking patterns and architecture of the Galleria have inspired the all-over pattern printed tone on tone within the jersey’s traditional black and red striped design, adding a modern twist to an iconic design.
The announcement came with another video trailer which you can view below or here.
The release also saw the training shirt and goalkeeper shirts go online on the Puma site and AC Milan site respectively.
