This time last year Umbro announced their collaboration with fashion designer Aitor Throup on a redesign of the England football team’s new away kit. Titled “Tailored by Umbro”, the new kit features a sleek minimal styling and a unique 3-panel construction designed with a utilitarian approach. The new England kit has now been released and can be purchased from the Umbro online store here.

DesignBoom recently interviewed Aitor Throup and Catherine Rees or Unbro about the project, giving great insight into the thoughts and and creation process of the kit. Take a look at the designboom interview here.
