To mark the rebirth of the New York Cosmos, Umbro has applied it’s celebrated football tailoring ethos to the club’s brand new Spring/Summer 2011 collection. A bit of background on the NY Cosmos:

The Cosmos were an on-pitch manifestation of all things New York – aspiration, hard work, glamour and success. A potent formula generated by the cosmopolitan mixture within the team, which included footballing greats such as Pelé and Giorgio Chinaglio.

The Cosmos of 1977 shaped themselves into as much of a New York icon as the Empire State building. Not only were they iconic for their performances, but also for their on pitch uniform.

Never shy about making a statement, The Cosmos were ahead of their time in the design of the uniform that they chose to wear. The attention to detail they put into their on-pitch style was shown through numerous kit changes over the course of a season. Truly unique and never since replicated by a professional team, the Cosmos uniform of 1977 remains the stuff of legends.

The spring collection is blends modern day New York with attributes of the original 70s Cosmos uniforms – including references to Pelé’s famous number 10 – adapting a number of classic Umbro styles for off-field wear. Available now at select accounts.
