Le Coq Sportif x Neal Heard

For Fall/Winter 2017, le coq sportif has invited Neal Heard, unrivalled sneaker expert and collector, to design a clothing collection.

A die-hard football fan, who cut his teeth as a Casual on the British Football Terraces of the 1980’s. Neal took inspiration from his favourite jersey of all time, the Super Télé, worn by Saint-Étienne in the 1981-82 season. Neal Heard said, “I love this jersey with the huge flocked le coq sportif logo and oversized sponsor. It brings back so many memories. It’s what kicked off my interest in the brand, and manages to capture the whole romance and glamour of European football shirts for me and many others.”

Designed and developed in the brand’s workshops in Romilly and taking the Super Télé Jersey as its core inspiration, Neal took the opportunity to develop a capsule collection which includes two windbreakers, two t-shirts – including one in the famous vintage green – both with the 1981 jersey’s fine stripes, reissued for the occasion. The line also features a zip-neck sweatshirt.

Neal Heard is a freelance creative director and trend consultant. He is also the author of the definitive “Trainers,” and, recently, the critically-acclaimed “A Lover’s Guide to Football Shirts”. This lover of history – especially the history of mass culture, athletic brands, street culture, football jerseys, and sneakers – said, “When le coq sportif asked me to work with them, I was thrilled, because I have a lot of love for the brand. It was a great meeting of minds. We are passionate about the same things, so I approached this project with a lot of enthusiasm as well as my expertise.
