Chelsea have today unveiled their new home kit for the 2014/15 Premier League season. The Blues have also revealed a new red goalkeeper strip for the next campaign.

According to Adidas, the Chelsea kit takes inspiration from previous strips from the 1980's and 1990's, and features "a two-tone striped design, and also includes the latest premium adidas technologies such as the industry-leading breathable material - ClimaCool".

Alongside the kit launch, Adidas have released a promotional video entitled 'Forever Blue' - which shows five players recreating their most iconic moment in a Chelsea shirt, which are then immortalised in a statue.

The video, which is narrated by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, shows Petr Cech's penalty save from Bayern Munich's Bastian Schweinsteiger in the 2012 Champions League final, Fernando Torres's opening goal in the Europa League against Benfica, Gary Cahill's goal against Spurs, Oscar's brilliant turn-and-strike against Juventus and finally Eden Hazard's hat-trick against Newcastle in the Premier League.

The players in question then recreate their iconic moments, which are then cast in plaster and turned into sculptures.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech said: The players all love to get involved in these campaigns and the idea of being "Forever Blue" is something that everyone at the club can relate to, as we all have our own unique memories from our careers.

"I know that my moment in the Champions League final will stay with me forever and I am excited to see that my sculpture will help me share that moment with the fans.'

The new Chelsea kit is available online now and is in stores from April 30.
