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.
The quarterzip sweater and football shirt will be launched on December 13, at the release party in the epicentre of Ebbelwoi culture in Frankfurt Alt-Sachsenhausen. Both items will be on sale from December 16, via Outfitter, instore and online.
