Nike's latest design for the Holland away kit pays tribute to the Dutch soccer team's uniquely exhilarating style of play with a fresh and evocative design.

The most beautiful and eye-catching aspect of this kit has to be the gradient speed graphic on the shorts. The graphic comprises orange and white rays which extend up the side panels of the shirt. This graphic aims to represent the zippy and flair-filled style of play that the Dutch are renowned for.

The shirt has a crisp white base, which nicely amplifies the orange swoosh and emblem. The names and numbers on the kit were designed by Dutch graphic designer and typographer Wim Crouwel. This font is at once bold and modern while maintaining a retro appearance, specifically a throwback to 1970s-style soccer jerseys.

The saying goes "if you ain't Dutch, you ain't much", and this proudly evocative jersey proudly puts forth that message.
