Video: Umbro Archive Research Project – Designed by Aitor Throup

After giving you a glimpse at the Umbro Archive Research Project Collection the other day, we can present today a great video, highlighting the collection and especially the thought of movement behind it, something designer Throup is best known for.

“Umbro dipped into their archives of English football tailoring heritage to build a seven piece lifestyle collection designed by Aitor Throup. Throup used the shape of a body in motion as his inspiration for the collection, creating each style on a bust form in a running position. All of the performance elements the brand is known for are kept firmly intact. There are seven pieces: the 1966 Jacket, Aztex Jersey, Diamond Tape Track Jacket, 1970 World Cup Jersey, Drill Top, Drill Pant and ‘Barcelona’ Short.”

The full collection is now also available from END. Check it out after the jump.
