The World Cup Winners collection

WCW_2
With the World Cup only 13 days away, we bring you our second summer collection. The five piece collection titled, “World Cup Winners” features two LBF-lifestyle designs and three that draw inspiration from Brazil, Germany, and Italy (the three countries with the most World Cups).

  • BRAZIL
    Brazil_BLOG
    Winners of an unprecedented 5 World Cups and the only nation to have played in every tournament, Brazil might not have invented football but they redefined it. Home to the infectious joga bonito style of play and many of the greatest players the world has ever seen, life and football in Brazil are intertwined. These are represented by the five stars on the shirt, with the end of the words “Live” and “Futbol” cut off and inverted to respectively complete each other. Get Brazil here

  • GERMANY

    One of the most successful national team sides, Germany are the winners of three World Cup titles while being runner ups an astonishing four times, and finishing in third place four times. Die Mannschaft are the only nation to have won both the men and the women’s World Cups in history. With an assembly line of world class young talent and proven veterans, the Germans live and breathe football in a way that would make any other nation envious. The titles are represented by the three stars on the shirt with the end of the words “Live” and “Futbol” cut off and inverted to respectively complete each other. Get Germany here

  • ITALY

    The Azzurri, wearing the Savoy Blue representative of the Kingdom of Italy, the dynasty that unified Italy in 1861 and the official standard of the Italian President have won the World Cup four times. They have also appeared in two other finals and finishing in third and fourth place in two others as well. Known for their legendary cast of defenders and an array of handsome, intelligent and refined midfielders, the 9th ranked team by FIFA are easily one of the world’s most dominant and recognizable teams. The four stars on the shirt represent their title wins while the end of the words “Live” and “Futbol” cut off and inverted, respectfully completing each other to show how deep ingrained the football is to Italian life.

  • LBF Cup Winners
    WCW_4
    For those involved in football, the game doesn’t stop once you leave the field. The game is played on the pitch of life, every breathe is another chance at improvement, not only in the game but in life in general. If you can live life with the same drive and passion that you play the game, achieving your dreams would be a matter of time rather than if. The words “Live” and “Futbol” are cut and inverted, to show that these two things complete each other and are one in the same. As Terry Pratchett said ““The thing about football – the important thing about football – is that it is not just about football.” Get LBF here

  • Eat, Sleep, Breathe Futbol
    ESB
    Cristiano Ronaldo, arguably the best player in the world at the moment, captured the passion and obsession with football perfectly when he stated “I am not a perfectionist, but I like to feel that things are done well. More important than that, I feel an endless need to learn, to improve, to evolve, not only to please the coach and the fans, but also to feel satisfied with myself. It is my conviction that here are no limits to learning, and that it can never stop, no matter what our age.” It isn’t madness but an endless thirst of improvement and love for the game that drives those in football. It is a sport that sets its limits on the individual and if you are willing to surpass those limits then you will be unstoppable.

    LAUNCH party recap

    Last Friday we launched our American Fútbol and World Cup Winners collections at Philly Phaithful in Northern Liberties. I could go on and on about how awesome the night was, but I’ll just leave these photos here and hope that they give just a small glimpse into what was, in short, an epic evening.

    The American Fútbol Collection

    AF_6
    As we remember those who gave their lives in service of this great country, we bring you a new collection inspired by the United States’ complex relationship with football. If you’ve been following US Soccer in the past week, you know that Americans care about their soccer. The outrage in response to Landon Donovan’s omission from the World Cup 23 shows this. But Jurgen Klinsmann’s unwavering faith in youth players, namely Julian Green and DeAndre Yedlin, also shows that the future is bright for soccer in the United States. We present to you, the American Fútbol collection:

  • The American Fútbol tank:

    AF_7

  • No other country suffers the paradox of having two types of football like the United States does. Though world football is the less popular of the two in the USA, the sport is rapidly growing and the fans are as passionate as anywhere else in the world. Hosts of the World Cup in 1994 and home to a mixture of world famous stars and burgeoning wonderkids, American Fútbol deserves its own distinction to not only show, but also to embrace this two football relationship. Get the tank here

  • The Freedom tee:

    AF_8

  • Ranked as the 14th best footballing nation in the world, United States soccer still suffers from being the little brother of the NFL. Football in America though is alive and well, MLS is expanding at an impressive rate and the country is producing great young players that will lead a new generation into a brighter future. Football in the US without a doubt deserves to be seen on its own. With the revered bald eagle clutching to a football in the word futbol, it shows that Americans live, breathe and enjoy football as passionately as much as anyone else in the world. Get the tee here

  • The One Nation, Under Fútbol tank:

    LBF, American Futbol 9, one nation, tank

    A reissue from last summer’s Rebel line, the One Nation, Under Fútbol tank top is available in both men’s and women’s cuts here
