In Pictures: 'A new and daring look' - Barcelona's strips for next season

The Blaugrana have broken with tradition by using 'blurred stripes' on their home jersey for the 2012-13 season, while their away kit is a brilliant mix of orange and yellow

Barcelona unveiled their new strips for next season in the city's Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA) on Tuesday morning. Given that there is nothing traditional about the home jersey for the 2012-13 campaign, it was a fitting venue.

Indeed, the club's official website has described it as "a new and daring look" for one of the most iconic shirts in world football and there can be no doubt that the use of "blurred stripes" is going to divide opinion across the globe.

The incredibly colourful orange and yellow away jersey is also something of an assault on the senses, though when it comes to second strips, Blaugrana supporters have at least gotten used to a large degree of experimentation from kit designers over the past decade or so.
