Iconic sportswear brand Umbro has joined forces with NYC-based creative agency Coral Studios to design a capsule collection for this year’s edition of Art Basel Miami. Because Coral Studios is a partner of The Great Barrier Reef Foundation, the collection’s proceeds will partially benefit the environmental organization.
Items in the capsule include a reversible track jacket in Coral Studio’s bold coral reef camo print, home and away jerseys, and reversible checkerboard shorts. To further the offering’s sustainable efforts, the track jacket and jerseys are each made using a material made from recycled ocean fishing nets. Throughout, the collaborative collection features coral, purple, white, navy and gray colorways that speak to the biodiversity of coral reefs.
In celebration of the partnership, Coral Studios is set to host a pop-up during the upcoming Art Basel Miami. The activation will take place at Pegaso Soccer’s rooftop football field in Wynwood on December 6 and 7. At the pop-up and on Umbro’s website, a limited amount of pieces will be available for purchase ahead of the collection’s official release in Spring 2020. RSVP information can be found over on Coral Studio’s website and through Umbro’s US Instagram page below.
Elsewhere at the intersection of Art Basel Miami and fashion, Heron Preston is set to craft authorized counterfeits with Basic Space.

Everyone’s actions, big and small, are vital to the future of The Great Barrier Reef. This reef alone houses more than 3,000 species of aquatic life and only a small percentage of it remains intact. This eco-friendly collaboration between us and @coralstudios supports The Great Barrier Reef Foundation to ensure our reefs are protected so they can be appreciated by future generations to come. Come celebrate with us on December 6th and 7th at Wynwood while helping support the coral reefs. Coral Studios is a proud partner of The Great Barrier Reef Foundation and contributes a portion of all product sales to protecting, preserving, and recovering the coral reefs. RSVP in our story!
