MUNDIAL x Percival
A LIMITED EDITION COLLECTION
You may have noticed us popping up on football and culture geniuses MUNDIAL’s socials a fair bit recently. We love them deeply, and we’re pretty sure they like us as a friend at the very least. It seems deranged, then, that we’d never worked on a collection together.
You noticed it, didn’t you? Use of the past perfect tense, there. Course you did, you clever, keen-eyed bird of prey. You kestrel. Well, we’ve done it now. MUNDIAL x Percival is here, and it’s massive.
It’s inspired by a photograph. A famous photograph taken by the great Gerry Cranham at the 1965 FA Cup Final at Wembley. It was the final that started everything for the red half of Liverpool. Gerry Byrne broke his collarbone early doors, but played the whole game plus extra-time since there were no subs, and because he was absolutely rock hard. The Reds overcame a very strong Leeds side managed by Don Revie and starring the notorious Billy Bremner, winning 2–1 after extra-time. Rattles and rosettes all over the gaff, and a banner held high above the bouncing heads reading, “LIVERPOOL. THE CREAM OF EUROPE.”
