Umbro Launch World Cup-Inspired Retro Jersey Collection
With the summer approaching and the World Cup now less than a month away, it’s time to start thinking about Russia 2018. In celebration of this year’s tournament, Umbro have just unveiled the Projects Summer collection. A mix of Jerseys, Shorts and Tees, each item is inspired by iconic and vibrant designs from the retro kits of some of Europe’s biggest teams.
The World Cup-inspired Umbro Projects Summer collection is the closest thing you’ll get to owning a retro international kit without having to pay the premium for it. Each item in the collection utilises the country’s usual colour palettes and some throwback panelling for something straight out of the 90s.
There are nine Football Jerseys in the collection from European most successful nations, with England, Germany (Home & Away), France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Russia and Denmark all represented. Each Jersey features a sash of some sort as well as differing numbers. Naturally our favourite was always going to be England’s but it is a genuine beauty.
There’s also some perfectly retro football Shorts on offer from England (Away), Germany (Away) and France. Finishing things off in the collection is a selection of T-Shirts with large coloured Umbro branding on the chest inspired by England, Italy, France, Germany and Belgium.
The Umbro Projects Summer collection is available to purchase now over at the Umbro Website, where items are priced at £44.95 for the Football Jerseys, £35 for the Shorts and £25 for the T-Shirts.
Umbro are not the only brand to kick it retro this World Cup either; take a look at adidas’ official kits for the likes of Germany, Spain and Argentina to worn in Russia in June.
