It's back to a collar for the Gunners, who have released a shirt that feels both effortlessly modern and unmistakably retro for the 2022/23 season. The Arsenal home shirt for 2022/23 debuted in the final game of the season against Everton and it looked absolutely lovely.

The stripes are different! Barça add a navy blue to the blaugrana with this release, while there's a new sponsor in Spotify. This release has gone down extremely well online, while the gold is said to be referencing 30 years since the Olympic Games rocked up in the Catalan capital.

Bayern are wearing horizontal stripes this season. Though Robert Lewandowski's future remains in doubt, whoever leads the line next season will look smart in this get-up.

Erling Haaland won't be there to enjoy it – and it's a shame because this stripey effort from Dortmund is both gloriously vintage and a fresh take on the top of late. They're everyone's favourite hipster club for a reason, right?

Haaland waved the Dortmund fans goodbye in this get-up – and it might just be nicer than the actual home shirt for next season. The pre-match top for BVB is particularly jazzy but it looks excellent.

England

Inspired by diamonds, the England women's home shirt is simplistic but flash, with a pearlescent badge and a subtle all-over graphic. This is the top that the Lionesses are hoping football comes home in.

A brighter shade of red than the England away shirt has ever been before. The Lionesses are breaking new ground and for the watershed year of 2022, this new away kit is truly unique in the history of English football.

It's absolutely glorious, isn't it? The French have gone with a loud pattern for their home shirt that looks fantastic close up, while the colours are a lot brighter than recent Nike shirts. We love it.

The Euro 2022 for Les Bleus pairs a clean white with a beautiful rose gold for something truly stunning. This is going to make a big statement when France arrive on our shores this summer.

A darker shirt for a new season. Liverpool wore their 2022/23 jackets for the Champions League final but this new top has been kept under wraps for next season. It's minimal, it's lush and it's going to be a fan favourite.

Colin Bell is honoured with the new Man City threads, which have touches of dark red. The badge and Puma logo are centered and there's a round collar on this one. A classy look for the champions, indeed.

A retro release from Adidas Originals, this Manchester United jersey recalls simpler times. There's a whole collection of merchandise celebrating the glory glory of United in the 90s but this particular shirt is a cut above the rest.

Just because you know what you're getting from the Dutch, it doesn't make the results any less special. Still the nicest orange shirt in the history of football – sorry, Blackpool – the Netherlands women team are going to be wearing a traditional shade at the Euros, with the men set for a more yellowy effort in Qatar this winter.

That's right: it's inspired by De Stijl. We can't believe that the Netherlands haven't gone with a Mondrian-inspired top before but we're in awe of it. We're just hoping that they pay tribute to Vincent van Gogh somehow for the World Cup later this year…
