In a similar blue vein to Nike’s True Colors World Cup range, Umbro have launched the World Champion's Collection, inviting eight artists to redesign the national crest of their homeland for use in a special range of football themed apparel. Representing the game’s historic powerhouses are André (France), Ben Eine (England), Fernando Chamarelli (Brazil), ZZK Records (Argentina), Marok (Germany), Tanino Liberatore (Italy) and Martin Albornoz (Uruguay). To top it off, the shirts have graced models from each nation in a slinky photoshoot inspired by some of Umbro’s cheeky advertisements from the swingin’ sixties . Thanks to the Umbro Blog for the images.
