Arsenal players sport retro kit for 60thanniversary of Citroen DS

Usual football practise momentarily came to a halt recently when players chose to help celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Citroen DS. The talented Theo Walcott, David Ospina, Laurent Koscielny and Mathieu Flamini took parts in a shoot with a DS 5 and 1961 ID19, which complimented their replica 1955 football kits.

The original DS reigned across two decades, when it sold almost 1.5 million models from 1955 to 1975. Ahead of its time, the DS was originally styled and engineered by an Italian sculptor and a French aeronautical engineer.

In 2014, Citroen and Arsenal signed a new three year contract, whereby the team’s official automotive sponsor will continue to be Citroen. Citroen’s partnership with A spokesperson for the Gunners said that the players had “embraced their club’s heritage” by wearing the renowned red and white kit which their predecessors would have worn over half a century ago.
