If you’re interested in seeing the Umbro England kit then you’re probably down the pub watching the match against Slovakia, but here is the image waiting for you to pore over with a kebab when you get home.

On the surface it looks like a regular kit but they’ve really pushed for technological and tailoring improvements. I’ve put up the annotated picture so you can see the tailoring details, click the image to enlarge and check out videos with the designers below.

Brandish speaks to the team behind the Umbro England kit: David Blanch, Charlie Allen and Aitor Throup

By admin on March 28th, 2009

Today marked the launch of the Umbro England kit, with a special preview for press. The kit is being officially unveiled tomorrow at the England vs Slovakia match, but take my word for it when I say it’s pretty special!

We caught up with the trio behind the innovative design today and grilled them on the creative process behind this launch. David Blanch is the creative director for Umbro and an ex-footballer but his love of fashion runs deep. He has worked at the RCA which also was home to Savile Row tailor Charlie Allen for a while before he launched his own label.

In our second video, after the jump we interview critically acclaimed designer Aitor Throup who takes us through his body and movement focused approach to design.

Kim Jones Umbro trainers

By admin on March 27th, 2008

Umbro aren’t a brand you associate with style. No matter what they do, when people think Umbro, they think football. It’s an image association that the company are finding impossible to shake, which is a shame as their Kim Jones collaboration has produced some great trainers, with
these Mid-tops
the pick of an impressive bunch.

Whilst I’m sure no Brandish readers commit
this felony, I’ve started to notice an alarming number of people wearing Mid to
High tops and covering them with jeans that cover the majority of the trainer.
Doesn’t this defeat the point of wearing high trainers?

But enough about my pet peeves, these
trainers are available for a very affordable £60. Considering an Alexander
McQueen Puma trainer costs upwards of £150, these are bargains of Del-boy
proportions.

U by Umbro v-neck jumper

Umbro
The mention of Umbro usually makes me recoil slightly but their Kim Jones range has updated the brand’s look immeasurably. Their U by Umbro range is similarly refreshing, one of my favourite pieces is their v-neck jumper from Asos (£55), which cleverly uses the diamond-shaped Umbro logo as a subtle pattern. I also like the unusual combo of sludgy neutrals and peach, which will ensure you stand out from the crowd.

Umbro by Kim Jones

Umbro must be looking to move away from their beer boy image with their collaboration with Kim Jones. Understandably so, as the usual stuff is a bit naff, but the Kim Jones collections are fresh and cater for a range of styles. My favourite items from his A/W 07 collections are the wetlook windcheaters, I’m a bit obsessed with that fabric. I’m a bit disappointed that some of the shoes still look like those classic plastic market trainers, and not in a good way, but one step at a time I suppose. You can get your hands on their clothes at Urban Outfitters and Selfridges across the UK
