The All Blacks have unveiled their World Cup Jersey on Monday.

New Zealand Rugby’s jersey provider Adidas collaborated with Japanese artist Yohji Yamamoto, celebrating Japanese and Maori cultures.

The All Blacks also unveiled a teal training kit, a design that features a mythical cat figure on the back, a homage to Japanese culture and Maori mythology.

All Blacks captain Kieran Read said: "We're all really excited ahead of the Rugby World Cup in Japan. It's always special pulling on the All Blacks jersey, and to wear one that has used our culture to inspire the design will be especially cool. On behalf of the team, I want to thank the Y-3 team for all their work on the jersey."

The All Blacks kick off their World Cup campaign on September 21 against the Springboks.
