Umbro's 'Unforgotten' Collection Recalls the 1966 World Cup

British sportwear brand Umbro unveiled its latest offering entitled the Unforgotten collection. The Unforgotten collection draws a strong influence from the 1966 World Cup. The label has planned to craft kits for all 16 participating countries in the tournament. During the time of that World Cup, Russia went against wearing their kit, which initiated Umbro to launch a new collection inspired by that lost set.

The Unforgotten collection really exudes a 60s Russian aesthetic and it can be seen through multiple details including the usage of red, white, and blue colors. Umbro's logo also makes the most of the Cyrillic-inspired font. The collection includes a small range that is specifically dedicated towards Lev Yashin—the Russian team's goalkeeper—and the mainly black-colored Lev items also boast Cyrillic text.
