The Chicago Bulls today officially unveiled their new 2020-21 NBA City Edition uniform designed alongside Nike.
The uniform is a love letter to the city’s architecture and art deco style, a departure from the flag-heavy designs the club has worn as their City uniform in recent seasons.
Black with gold and red embellishments, the uniform incorporates the art deco style lettering seen throughout the city as well as on the United Center’s directional signage across the front as their wordmark and player numbers.
Up each side of the jersey is a diamond pattern, this pattern begins at the bottom of the shorts, a nod to the diamond we see on the team’s usual uniform set but stacked on top of one another to mimick the look of a downtown skyscraper.
Within the diamond shape on the shorts is the Bulls primary logo, with horns coloured in gold (looks great) and four six-pointed stars — these stars are a nod to the city flag and are placed in a fashion similar to the rivets in ironwork.
There’s one more nod to the archecture of the city on the jock tag, it reads “No Little Plans”, a quote from former city planner Daniel Burnham who oversaw the rebuilding of Chicago following the infamous Chicago Fire in the 19th century.
As a City Edition uniform, this will only be worn a few times in 2020-21 then sent away following the season.
