"The kit is a bold and exciting design that celebrates the club's unique standing in world football whilst offering Aeroswift technology for cutting edge performance, and contemporary detailing," a statement on Barca's official website read.
"The striking dark maroon colourway of the shirt, shorts and socks is as bold as the club's world famous style of play. Its modern round neck is simple whilst the sharp geometric patterns on both shirt and sock stand out from any crowd.
"The bright orange stripe detail along the shoulder and the arm include a mosaic-like detail that celebrates the work of the city's famous architecture. The players' numbers will appear in the same bright orange. The back of the shirt also includes the word, 'Barca' reiterating the pride both in the club and in the city.
"The sides of the kit feature a stripe that runs the length of the shirt and shorts where it fades into a distinctive orange. Expanding when the player is in motion, the stripe maximizes ventilation and allows better freedom of movement."
Blaugrana midfielder Sergi Roberto is happy with the new kit.
"As a player, you always want to step on to the pitch looking and feeling confident to play your game," he said.
"I'm really proud to pull on this new kit, inspired by my city and my culture. The innovation and design takes it to a new level."
The Catalan giants will wear the new dark maroon third strip, which replaces the green kit from last season, for the first time in their UEFA Champions League encounter against Sporting Lisbon on 27 September.
