The Orlando Pride has introduced the Highway Woman Kit, the Club’s 2023 primary jersey, influenced by and paying tribute to one of Florida’s iconic female trailblazers: Mary Ann Carroll. The kit was designed in collaboration with the estate of Carroll, a legendary Black artist and the only woman of the iconic Highwaymen painters.
The Highway Woman Kit reintroduces an all-purple look for the Pride, with a dark purple base for both the jersey top and the shorts. As a nod to Carroll’s artistry, the main pattern of the kit is highlighted by a contrasting, lighter purple brushstroke pattern.
Inspired by the Fort Pierce, Fla., native’s landscape work, the bottom of the kit features an embellishment displaying a silhouette of a Royal Poinciana tree – a favorite and familiar motif of her art – and Carroll’s signature. Returning to a full-color woven Pride crest, the Club’s Eola Blue color is also carried down into the embellishment.
