Umbro reunites with Nigel Cabourn for retro sportswear collection
Umbro has reunited with Nigel Cabourn for a second retro sportswear collection, following their first military-led rugby capsule for Fall/Winter 2021.
Inspired by vintage British Army recruit training gear and the Army Gymnastic Staff of Cabourn’s era, the nine-piece collection offers a range of styles which revitalises casual gym wear and uniform from the '40s and '50s for a modern audience.
Highlights from the second Umbro x Nigel Cabourn collection include Umbro’s popover Drill Top reimagined as the POH Training Top in loopback marl-grey cotton jersey, a zip-through Tracktop with matching logo-carrier pants and shorts.
The collection is underpinned by a selection of three short-sleeve polo shirts in dark navy, off-white, and washed army green, crafted in cotton Aertex fabric with a zip-to-collar elasticated waist and "UMBRO" felt applique lettering across the back.
Commenting on the collaboration, Nigel Cabourn said: "My first Umbro collab collection was a reference to the brand’s British sporting heritage as well as its connection with the rugby world.
"But with this second capsule I wanted to give Umbro the complete Cabourn seal of approval with a set of styles inspired by the Army Gym design personality which is so close to my heart."
