Umbro x Aitor Throup


As one of the major player in sportswear with a British root Umbro has always caught collaborating with British fashion designer as well. Years back we’ve seen Umbro working together with Kim Jones but last year was a smart move by Umbro when they signed the genius Aitor Throup to design England Away Kit. One successful project leads to another one this year Umbro and Throup released a capsule collection called the Archive Research Project. Throup started the project by digging deep into Umbro’s archive and ended with an updated version of the 1970 World Cup Jersey 1966 Jacket Aztec jersey Umbro short replica audemars piguet watches the taped sleeve jacket and drill pants and top.

As we might expected from Throup the collection is rich with details showing Throup thoughtful attention to human movement and anatomy. On the project site you can see Throup’s sketches on how he broke down each pieces and creating parts that can truly support the wearer movement without forgetting Umbro approach on sportswear. Truly a classic football tailoring with a 21st century twist.
