Hanon x Umbro « Training Jersey’90 » & « Silver City »
Leading Scottish retailer Hanon has partnered with sports equipment manufacturer Umbro to design a special edition collection inspired by a legendary soccer jersey from the archives. Designed by Umbro and the Scottish Football Association in the late 80s, the jersey appeared to celebrate the 1990 Football World Cup in Italy.
At the time, the jersey was presented as leisure wear and was never released as an official kit. It was made famous by the team during the recording of the song for the World Cup ’90 : the players wear it on the cover of the record.
For this special edition, Hanon worked meticulously with Umbro to recreate this jersey in its true vintage OG cut. We find the same abstract geometric pattern throughout the polyester garment, reminiscent of the « Italia’90 » logo. The color palette is rather bold, with a combination of pink, navy blue and yellow. A second, more understated version in shades of grey was also designed, in homage to Hanon’s hometown of Aberdeen, nicknamed « Silver City ».
To remain faithful to the original model, the sleeves are short and drooping, the collar ribbed while closing with internal buttoning and snaps. An imposing number 90 on the back, a classic Umbro logo on the chest and internal retro labels complete the look.
To finalize the tribute, the jerseys are packaged in specially created Repli-Kits.
The Hanon x Umbro « Training Jersey ’90 » & « Silver City » jerseys will be released in an ultra limited edition on the Hanon website via a raffle available here https://launches.hanon-shop.com/collections/hanon Registration is now open and closes November 12, 2020.
The price per colorway is 72€, sizes from XS to XXL. Good luck !
