Umbro has teamed up with graphic designer, Peter Saville, to design the new England team England Home Shirt with sportswear maker, Umbro. Peter Saville adds his signature style to the shirt by adding a new fabric print on the shoulder, inspired by the diversity of England, and is done through his interpretation of the classic St. George’s cross symbol. The traditional red cross is now joined by the blue, green and purple (which symbolizes bespoke tradition in England).
In Saville’s own words ” Both the nation and fans themselves are more diverse than before…Football is a language that everyone can relate to and the new England home kit provides the perfect canvas to reflect what England looks like today. The reality of modern England is expressed in this patter as it reclaims the St. George’s cross to positively represent our contemporary society”.
