UMBRO and Sapeur – One Step Beyond have joined forces to revive the spirit of 1990 with the launch of two archive-inspired pieces.
The football shirt is inspired by the national team jersey worn at the World Cup 1990. The design of the jersey pays homage to German pub culture and Ebbelwoi, a national sanctuary and beverage of choice for any inhabitant of the Sapeur-homebase, the state of Hessen. While the classic button collar is a nod to the original shirt, the Sapeur crest on the chest is framed by the infamous Fichtekranz, a spruce wreath that symbolizes the local ‘Ebbelwoi culture’ seen on every traditional Apfelwein pub in the Frankfurt area.
The quarterzip sweater pays homage to the spirit of the terraces and the sounds of the scene: zipped up to the top and worn with jeans and trainers. The design features matching logo stitchings on the chest and ‘One Step Beyond’ stitched on the neck.
