Premier League fans are eagerly awaiting the start of the new season next month, but while the game is paused it’s time to look at club colours for the coming campaign.
Each summer new kits are launched as top-flight sides unveil their latest offerings, with the latest Premier League releases containing the usual collection of hits and misses.
We’ve picked out some of our favourite designs of the summer so far, here are five of the best new kits ahead of the 2022/23 Premier League season.
Arsenal – Home
Collars are back in this season and Arsenal’s new home kit is among the best-looking shirts of the new season, featuring a large white collar with lightening bolt accents.
The collared neck – which features a button to fasten for a smarter look – is a throwback to the Gunners’ garments of the nineties and early noughties.
Place a JVC or Dreamcast sponsor on the front of this and it could quite easily pass for the shirts worn by the likes of Ian Wright and Dennis Bergkamp during a golden era for the north Londoners.

Arsenal – Away
Adidas have done a fine job of the Gunners matchday attire for the 2022/23 season, offering up a slick all-black kit for the club’s fixtures on the road.
The kit pays homage to the north London club’s worldwide following. The groups are known as “Little Islingtons” – named after the area of London the club has been based in for more than a century.
To compliment the black base, the adidas logo, club crest and sponsor are in a smart bronze, with silvered stripes down each arm.

Manchester United – Home
Manchester United will also wear a collared kit for the new campaign, with adidas having followed the blueprint of Arsenal’s home jersey.
The Red Devils have a long history of collared shirts, made iconic during the club’s period of domestic dominance during the 1990s
Describing the kit, the club said: “The 2022/23 home shirt features a stylish patterned polo collar, which bears resemblance to some of the club’s most memorable kits throughout history.
“It’s also a subtle nod to some of our former greats, whose unique style on and off the pitch made their kit their own.”

No player embodied the collar more than Eric Cantona, who brought skill and swagger in abundance with his trademark upturned collar.
There’s certainly a 1998/99 feel to the club’s kits this season, with the white away shirt – incorporating smart red and black trims – resembling the shirt worn during the Red Devils’ historic treble-winning campaign.

Nottingham Forest – Home
Nottingham Forest will return to the Premier League for the first time in 23 years this season, with Steve Cooper’s remarkable transformation of the club having ended with success in the play-offs.
Forest will return in one of the cleanest looking kits of the 2022/23 campaign, one in the traditional Garibaldi red colours that also includes detailed sleeve, collar and vent designs that take inspiration from The Trent Bridge.

Forest are currently negotiating for a new shirt sponsor ahead of the new campaign, so the current version – a retro look without large logos – will not remain throughout the season.
However, as a basic pre-template goes before sponsorship additions, there are few better mixes of heritage with a modern twist.
Tottenham – Home
It’s become quite difficult to grab the attention with a Spurs shirt in recent campaigns, but the latest offering from Nike is an upgrade on past editions.
The large red AIA sponsor is far from the most pleasing among Premier League clubs, but Nike have done well with the basics here. The kit is clean with detailed additions to add life, as the navy and neon trimmings on the collar and sleeves stand out without being distracting.
There’s reason for optimism at Spurs after Champions League qualification and busy summer of recruitment, and Antonio Conte’s side will look good as the north Londoners look to improve again this season.

Honourable mention: Brentford – Home
Brentford will continue to wear their 2021/22 shirt for the forthcoming campaign, with the Bees once again forward-thinking and putting the fans first.
It’s a small step to help combat the cost of living crisis for the club’s supporters, but one that should be applauded.
The modern game has become a money-making machine when it comes to annual shirt releases and seasonal merchandise, with Brentford prepared to take a financial hit in order to support their fanbase.
