UMBRO OOF JUNO CALYPSO JERSEY
When is a football shirt more than just a football shirt? When it's a genuine limited edition work of art. For their first collaboration, OOF x UMBRO asked two of the UK's most exciting contemporary artists - Juno Calypso and Rhys Coren - to create unique pieces of art, but instead of working with paint, photography or sculpture, they're using the football shirt as their medium.
Strictly limited to 300 pieces each, every shirt comes with a signed, numbered certificate of authenticity. We wanted to make the idea of owning original limited edition artworks accessible to everyone, not just the art elite: now you get to be an art collector without having to wear a turtleneck.
About Juno Calypso:
The lone figure in all of Juno Calypso's images is her: she photographs herself in couples-only motels, abandoned underground bunkers and heart-shaped hot tubs. She builds a soft pink universe of femininity, solitude, desire and despair, all with a hyper-critical edge. And in the process, she's become one of the most recognisable photographers working today, forging a totally unique aesthetic that has seen her go on to do campaigns for major fashion brands like Stella McCartney and Burberry.
Her shirt for the OOF x Umbro collaboration plays on familiarly Calypso-like themes, emblazoned with the name of an imagined brothel, and set against a heady wall of wavy pink stripes. It's confrontational, sinister and undeniably Juno Calypso.
