Arsenal‘s new yellow away kit has proven to be hugely popular with supporters, and Adidas have now designed some extra items in a similar style to celebrate the Notting Hill Carnival.
A yellow bucket hat, trousers, a button-up shirt and tracksuit bottoms, all incorporating the ‘bruised banana’ design, have been created, but won’t be seeing a wider release, as reported by Hypebeast.
All of the items were produced from cut-up Arsenal away shirts, and include a No 8 on the back in reference to club legend Ian Wright.

The stylish shirt was released last month and drew inspiration from the classic Arsenal away shirt, which was worn by players such as Wright between 1991 and 1993.
For this year’s Arsenal away kit, Adidas wanted to provide a ‘classic twist’ on the iconic shirt.
The design includes Adidas’ three stripes on the shoulders in navy blue.

Arsenal wore the strip for the first time in a competitive game when they beat Newcastle on the opening weekend of the Premier League season, but Unai Emery’s side will wear their third kit away to Liverpool this weekend.
This year’s Notting Hill Carnival will take place on Sunday and Monday, with around one million people expected to be in attendance.
The carnival sees a celebration of Caribbean heritage, with music, costumes and food vendors.
