REPLAY x FC BARCELONA

27.12.13

Groundbreaking Italian denim brand Replay continue their innovative approach to fashion with a high end collaboration with Barcelona FC. Their “Unexpected Formal” campaign saw the brand sign an exclusive contract with the world’s best football team to supply formal wear and casual wear to the team. This unconventional partnership has raised eyes in the fashion world and produced a series of exciting limited edition releases that are available at Xile.

The first team’s couture formal wear is limited to Barcelona FC players – if you’re worried about making the starting eleven there is also a casual range inspired by Barcelona’s elegant style of play that uses innovative new Denim Zero° technology. This new and exclusive eco-friendly process utilises high-pressure ice crystals to create stand out denim washes while using 90% less water!

The new Denim Zero washes have been transferred to two classic Replay denim fits with great effect. First up we have the Replay Waitom, a stand out straight legged denim that benefits from an accessible but stylish fit. The jean is relaxed enough to provide everyday comfort but also tailored enough to provide a fashionable silhouette. At £125 this is a fantastic price for a truly exceptional wash.

If you prefer your denims slimmer and more streamlined then the Replay Anbass is a must have style. This tapered jean features a slimline silhouette that is cut closer to the body and is also priced at a very reasonable £125. Both jeans look amazing in the new Denim Zero wash with a deep rinse and aquamarine colourway combining to great effect.

The Barcelona capsule collection also features an outstanding piece of outerwear. The limited edition denim shirt is a standard fit with light wash denim and official FC Barcelona branding. This is a uniquely styled shirt in an on trend mid stone wash. Team with either pair of Replay x Barcelona jeans for maximum effect.
