The Rick Owens x Champion Collaboration Launches This Month
Take a look at the full collection here.
Back in June 2019, Rick Owens debuted his collaboration with classic sportswear brand Champion on the runway at Paris Fashion Week. No stranger to hyped partnerships, Owens is now set to launch his take on Champion’s athletic wear this month.
In a statement on the collaboration, Owens revealed that his eponymous brand’s logo is actually a cross between that of Champion and a perfume label by French designer Jean Patou. “I remember my older, cooler cousins wearing Champion sweatshirts and shorts in the seventies, cementing that logo in my brain,” Owens added.
The Champion “C” is placed at the center of a five-pointed star, embroidered on T-shirts, sweatpants, hoodies and windbreakers. Jersey-style tank tops, crop tops and tennis skirts are rendered in mesh, and elastic-waist shorts arrive in black nylon. Colorways are limited to black, white and grey, a muted palette typical of Owens’ work.
