Editor’s Notes: After a recent hookup on a New Balance sneaker, Japanese designer Daisuke Obana and his label N.Hoolywood have linked up with British heritage sports brand Umbro for SS19.
The capsule comprises long-sleeve and short-sleeve tees, shorts, and bucket hats, recalling the sort of look rocked by Britpop legends Oasis in the mid ’90s. The shirt styles are done up in the style of classic ’90s Umbro football kits and training gear, with collaborative branding hits in place of team logos and sponsors.
The long-sleeves and tees come in four colorways, black, white, blue, and red, while the shorts and bucket hats are more muted. Prices vary from ¥15,120 (approximately $135) to ¥27,000 (approximately $240).
