Introducing the I Love Ugly World Cup Capsule, entitled 'Legends’. In collaboration with London-based Illustrator Chester Holme the Legends Capsule celebrates the world's largest sports event, the Football World Cup, with two exclusive artworks; the Legends Print, and the Crowd Print. Fusing our love of football with Chester Holme’s unique comic illustrative-style the Legends Capsule seeks to pay homage to World Cup legends of the past, whilst celebrating the multicultural fanfare that engulfs each tournament, and seemingly puts the rest of the world in party mode.
The Legends Print is comprised of a handpicked ILU World Cup Legends 11, the Legends Print reinterprets iconic World Cup moments that have gone down in sports history such as Johan Cruyff’s introduction of the ‘Cruyff Turn’ at Germany ’74, Zinedine Zidane’s notorious head-butt incident at Germany ’06, and Diego Maradona’s infamous ‘Hand of God’ at Mexico ’86. Featured as a placement print on the Easy Tee, and Frankie Short the Legend Print is also available as an A2 print poster, limited to 30.
The Crowd Print is a celebration of the fanatical, multicultural atmosphere that engulfs each World Cup tournament. The Crowd Print paints a comedy-filled fictitious picture of an English-supporting crowd’s reaction to a last-minute, victory-clinching goal scored by a German opposition player. One of the World Cup’s most revered rivalries, the Crowd Print glorifies the typically tense atmosphere of an England v Germany clash with a light-hearted, sarcastic mood from flying beer, to misspelt nationalist pride. Featured as a placement print on the Harley Hood, and Easy Tee the Crowd Print is also available as an A2 print poster, limited to 30.
