The new Premier League season is here. What have the football kit designers come up with this season? Have they stuck to your club’s traditional kit design or thrown everything out and started from afresh? Take a look below for Premier League clubs A to M and see what you think.

This new Arsenal shirt for the 2012-13 Season certainly looks like an Arsenal home shirt. The most notable change is the addition of blue to the sleeves, reflecting a British feel to the shirt. Nothing too controversial with this kit and it should be well received by Gooners.

Nike has been a little more bold with the away strip, with a purple and black hooped design that is similar to the 2007-08 Season. There is red trim to the sleeves. The away shirt is likely to be a little more divisive than the home shirt, but overall I think the shirt will prove to be a popular design.

Villa’s shirt suppliers, Macron, have come up with a traditional design for the claret and blue home shirt.

They’ve been a little more daring with the away shirt, opting for a vibrant lime green colour, with navy trim. The design may challenge the traditionalists, but fans will be hoping the team can be as bold this new Season.
