Arsenal Women will wear 424 suits for the first time ahead of Saturday’s FA Women’s Continental League Cup final against Chelsea.
424 became Arsenal’s official formal wear partner earlier this season. The partnership with the Los Angeles-based fashion brand marks the first time that Arsenal Women have had an official formal wear partner.
Arsenal commercial director Peter Silverstone said: “We are very pleased to introduce an official formal wear partner for Arsenal Women for the first time in our history. Arsenal Women are the most successful women’s team in English football and one of the most followed women’s sports teams globally on social media. It’s fitting that they will wear their new 424 suits ahead of a cup final, and we hope we can kick off this exciting and innovative collaboration with a cup victory.”
424 co-founder Guillermo Andrade said: “We are proud that 424 have designed the formal wear for Arsenal Women, the reigning Women’s Super League champions, for the first time in the club’s history. This season has been a dream come true for me as an Arsenal fan, I look forward to taking another step forward seeing the women’s wear come to life.”
Danielle Carter said: “The new 424 suits look great and we are proud to be part of the collaboration between 424 and the club. The cup final this weekend represents yet another big moment in the history of Arsenal Women and we hope we can do everyone proud by bringing the trophy home.”
Hector Bellerin, who assisted in directing and styling the Women’s photoshoot, said: “Arsenal has always been a club which pushes the boundaries and here is another example of that with the partnership between 424 and Arsenal Women. It was a pleasure to work on the shoot for the new suits and I’m proud to be part of a club which innovates and collaborates across all Arsenal teams.”
Driven by co-founder Guillermo Andrade’s friendship with Hector Bellerin, his life-long support of Arsenal and love of football, the partnership between Arsenal and 424 has seen the contemporary streetwear label enter the world of professional sport for the first time.
424 is widely recognised for their cutting-edge creations that are born out of a love of fashion, lifestyle and art. Their flagship boutique store in the heart of Los Angeles inspires designs that push originality over everything else.
