Umbro has partnered with New Order to launch a second collaborative line.
The Manchester sports brand has teamed up with the Manchester-based band to create new items that celebrate the influence of synth-pop legends on uniting indie, dance and football fans in the early 1900s. 90s.
A football shirt with Umbro’s signature jacquard pattern is included, which features an England ’90 woven stripe along the sleeves. The £50 football shirt features an Umbro logo as well as the New Order logo.
There is also a ‘World In Motion’ globes motif on the chest, referring to the fact that New Order’s song ‘World In Motion’ was often sung by England fans during the 1990 World Cup .
A New Order Workout Top (priced at £55), New Order Celebration Jacket (£65) and New Order Bobble Beanie (£20) are also available. To manage here to see more items.
This isn’t the first time Umbro and New Order have collaborated. Last May, the duo joined forces to release a collection of raincoats, tracksuits and football shirts that nod to the group’s influence on football terrace culture.
In other news, last November New Order frontman Bernard Sumner tackled the ‘assembled crap’ of modern music, while performing at the O2 in London.
Following their massive comeback gig in Manchester last September, the band played a sold-out gig in the capital which was also broadcast live around the world.
Sumner frequently spoke to the crowd, joking that the show would end early after the enthusiastic response to “Bizarre Love Triangle”.
Later he began to make a point, before drummer Stephen Morris started playing, which Sumner later returned to: “It’s nice to hear real music rather than this assembled crap that we is inflicted on all these days.”
