Remember the New York Cosmos? They’re back! Launching the Umbro Cosmos Blackout Collection, the good folks at Anomaly approached us to create this retelling of the legendary Carlos Alberto Torres’ unique induction into the Cosmos family. A special treat for New Yorkers.
Ruling a land based on a coffee plantation, a megalomanic leader is overcome by paranoïa as he often reads the future of his empire off the marks in his coffee cup. He is often shadowed by an illusory second self that visits him in warning of an exterior threat. Succumbing to his alter ego, he builds a fort around his people who finally rise up against their ruler.
