Umbro ‘Modern England’ Collection

Umbro have once again requested the assistance of infamous creative director Peter Saville, designer of last years Umbro England football kit, to create this capsule collection titled “Modern England”.

Based around the pattern than Peter Saville designed for the England football kit, the Modern England collection sees it taken to new extremes utilising all-over prints and new colours applied to the pattern. Some of the key pieces in the collection are rather bold, mainly the all-over print t-shirts and sweats, but they work so well. The monochrome polos bring the tone down a touch, adding something for the more subtle England fan. The addition of small England football crest branded tags to the bottom of each garment keeps things football orientated, but to be honest I wish they had left these off and just kept the relation between the print itself and the England kit.

I’m a huge fan of this collection, and a surprise one at that, with the all-over print tees and sweats really tickling my fancy. When rocked well, they will look badass. And it’s nice to see Umbro doing something a little brave and although heavily related to football, not too obviously.

You can find the collection exclusively at Harvey Nichols stores ranging in price from £40 to £70.

    To be honest Christopher, I would pay for the all-over-print t-shirt personally, as mentioned in the post. Everything cannot be everyones cup of tea though and I understand that.

    LOL is it me or is there something about having the England badge on normal Tshirts and stuff (as opposed to sports kits) that makes it seem cheap and tacky?
