“Umbro dipped into their archives of English football tailoring heritage to build a seven piece lifestyle collection designed by Aitor Throup. Throup used the shape of the body in motion as his inspiration for the collection, creating each style on a bust form in a running position. All of the performance elements the brand is know for are kept firmly intact. There are seven pieces: the 1966 Jacket, Aztex Jersey, Diamond Tape Track Jacket, 1970 World Cup Jersey, Drill Top, Drill Pants, and ‘Barcelona’ Short.”
Michael Williams, from A Continuous Lean, and (capsule) New York Old & New Pop-Up Shop will feature up-and-coming labels as well as select vintage dealers and artisans, including our friends at Terrapin Stationers.
