Progressive designer Christopher Raeburn joins forces with Umbro for an assortment of deconstructed soccer gear. Repurposing iconic Umbro sportswear from 1996-2010, the collection slices retro shirts into new garments, like jackets, sweaters and shorts.
The original shirts were selected for their relevance in British soccer history, like the ‘98 World Cup kits worn when rookie Michael Owen hit a breakthrough goal against Argentina and the pair of kits from 2002’s World Cup 5-1 victory against Munich. Raeburn’s new creations offer aggressively rearranged numbers, patterns, logos and colors, with bits of each jersey splattered haphazardly across each garment all while maintaining England’s key white, red, orange and black colors throughout. Completing the collection is a backpack and soccer ball, both offering complementarily patchwork detailing.
