Umbro Cosmos For A Blackout Pop-Up Shop

Collection looks from T magazine Photos: Umbro

Umbro is hyping their Cosmos for a Blackout collection with a pop-up shop at downtown NYC cool-kid mecca Reed Space. The shop is a throwback to the 1977 New York City blackout, and will only be open from dusk to till dawn, starting at 9 p.m. and closing at 6 a.m.

Brazilian soccer player Carlos Alberto Torres landed in NYC the day of the blackout to play with the ‘mos and talked to T magazine about the night when the lights went out:

“No showers! I got to my hotel and had to sit in the lobby — it wasn’t until late that evening I could finally get into my room after a long day traveling,” he said with a laugh. But the night life clearly made up for it: “Man we used to go to Studio 54 one night and hear Frank Sinatra at Carnegie Hall the next.”
