Gallery: International shirts brilliantly reworked by designer labels, including England and Argentina

Football shirts have become a little plain over the past few years, but these are AMAZING...

I'll be honest, I've got a bit of a soft spot for football shirts. From the beautiful to the really abstract and a little bit painful to the eyes.

One problem I and many others have with football shirts over the past few years, is the fact that a lot of them are either really, really simply or absolutely mad.

The other issue is that only a handful of designers actually make the kits and it seems Nike and Adidas have a bit of a stranglehold over the world of footballing attire.

It even happens with the national teams – England's is basically just a £60+ white t-shirt. So what if some of our favourite designer labels got their finger out and designed some kits?

Well, thanks to this brilliant graphic designer, Emilio Sansolini, we can now see just what they'd look like. Sansolini created the kits of each country in the style of that nation's most famous brand.

Just have a look at these beauties (credit to Emilio Sansolini & Behance)
