Robby Smukler is the creator of Icarus F.C., one of the most creative football kit manufactures in existence. Along with designing and producing uniforms for clubs, Icarus F.C. started a line of historical shirts envisioning what classic civilizations of the past would’ve worn, had the beautiful game been a reality for them. A few examples include the Kingdom of Kush, the Ottoman Empire and more.
With these historical designs in mind, we got together to discuss their creation.
You may find these shirts on their website: Icarusfc.com
