New design kids Tour de France jerseys released for 2018
The 2018 Tour de France jersey design has been revealed, and the kids size replicata TDF jerseys are just becoming available in the shops.
For 2018 there has been a redesign, with the usual collar being removed for a slightly more streamlined look. There is also what the organisers have called a "Mondrian-style pattern". Can you see it?
I have to confess to having ABSOLUTELY no idea what they were talking about - so I Googled "Mondrian" and discovered that Piet Mondrian was the Dutch artist responsible for this:
Aha - yes - I recognise him now, and my lack of art history knowledge has been exposed! A quick look back at the yellow jersey and I can just about make out the geometrical blocks of slightly darker yellow. I'm not quite sure why they've chosen Mondrain to influence this years jerseys. It's not a major anniversary of his birth (1872) or death (1944), and the Grand Depart isn't from his home town of Amersfoort in The Netherlands. The only link I can think of is that he lived and worked in Paris for several decades. If you know a better reason as to why they've chosen a Mondrian inspiration for this years TDF jerseys, do let me know in the comments section below!
There's also a kids sized King of the Mountains jersey available, but I'm really struggling to see the Mondrain blocks on it:
Every year the kids size TDF jerseys sell out really quickly. Chain Reaction Cycles and Wiggle currently have some left in stock, priced £60, but they don't have the smaller sizes.
They will sell out (they do every year) so don't leave it too late if you want one. Both the 2018 Tour de France kids sized yellow jersey and the pokla dot jerseys are available, and if you want to know more details about how the wash and wear you can check out our review post here.
