Following on from its recent Patta collaboration, British sportswear label Umbro has revealed another football-themed release with its new “Unforgotten” capsule. The collection is inspired by the 1966 World Cup, with Umbro intended to design kits for all 16 countries participating in the tournament. During the World Cup, Russia decided against wearing the kit, leading Umbro to release a new collection inspired by that lost kit.

The capsule is heavily influenced by 1960s Russian aesthetics, with red, white and blue colorblocked over some of the pieces. Other design elements include the use of Cyrillic-inspired font for the Umbro logo. Also included in the collection is a small capsule dedicated to Russian goalkeeper Lev Yashin, still the only goalkeeper to ever win the Ballon D’Or. The “Lev” pieces are predominantly black and feature similarly cyrillic text.

Key pieces in the drop include bomber jackets, jerseys and lightweight jackets, as well as accessories including a holdall and ball. The full collection is set to drop via the Umbro web store on April 25, with prices ranging from £35 GBP to £80 GBP (approx. $50 USD to $115 USD).
