Umbro once again prove their replica royalty status by dropping a duo of exquisite 2019 home and away shirts for Brasileiro Série A side Athletico Paranaens. Beautifully bespoke, detailed execution, typically Umbro.

Not much needs to be said about the Double Diamond in European Football; in Britain in particular it's a legendary symbol of the game with the richest history of producing beautiful kits. That reputation is as solid in South America, thanks partly to Umbro producing replica gold for the Brazilian National Team to lift the World Cup in 1994. The brand's presence on the domestic scene in Brazil is incredibly strong right now, and the latest designs for Paranaense prove that.


The 2019 home and away shirts for Athletico Paranaense feature updated minimalistic logos on the chest – a crest that has recently been refreshed by the club as part of their modernised identity shake up. This new club badge is the inspiration for the design of both the home and away jerseys with the diagonal stripes placed across the base of both jerseys.


The Athletico Paranaense home jersey is in traditional club colours of red and black while the new away strip is white with black stripes taken from the aforementioned emblem. Smart, minimal, superb. When it comes to thought, bespoke designs and edgier risk-taking, Umbro always seem to find that perfect balance of pleasing aesthetics.


Pick up both Athletico Paranaense 2019 Umbro Home & Away Shirts at their official club store.
