The phrase ‘new year, new you’ could be seen as a cliché but seriously, the circumstances surrounding 2021 mean we are all thinking differently about how to attack the year and a fresh approach is the best way. Umbro Projects will get you moving in style this winter and spring.
Life as we knew it is on hold right now but the AW20 collection will have you looking the part and raring to go whether the highlight of your day right now is a brisk walk in the park or a workout in the house alongside Joe Wicks. The ideal get-up for working out when everything is working against you, this range created by Umbro, the brand which turns 101 this year after being established in Cheadle in 1920, is light and cool and mixes trend-led silhouettes with a punchy palette.
Reflecting the ‘new normal’ we had to deal with last year, the collection reflects the need to be active with street and tech references. The Terrain Polar Fleece in camo boasts a neon contrast logo and trim utility pockets and is one of the standout pieces in the range.
Oversized printed knits and cargo pants are ideal for those days we allow to lounge around, while the Shell Jacket with high contrast texture prints will do the job outdoors. The clothing comes in earthy tones including maple leaf, olive, cyber red and acerbic lime. As well, there are accessories including corduroy and camo caps and beanie hats.
Umbro has you covered on the trainer front too, with the Greco sneaker coming in as part of the Archive Research Project. Inspired by the courts, the streamlined kicks revisit previous Umbro styles and features a panelled suede and synthetic upper, perforated details and a more subtle logo. The sole boasts a sculpted sole profile and comes in a classic cup shape.
