“Catalyst and connector with an explosive creative force, Burlon brings his multicultural energy and reinterprets his most iconic visual message for this exceptional partnership, a metaphorical love letter to Naples: the city, the team and its passionate fans,” it added.
The two jerseys blend Napoli’s existing tops, which are produced by Kappa, with Marcelo Burlon, County of Milan’s iconic spread wing design.
