There’s just something about vintage Champion pieces that gets the blood pumping. The sportswear giant’s archival pieces have been pulled for inspiration and reworked in all manner of recent editorials, from a fresh-to-death sweater-focused shoot from Union LA to a head-turning, Harley Quinn-themed collaboration with BEAMS. Now, we’ve decided to put our own spin on some vintage Champions, resulting in the newest entry of our Highsnobiety Shoots series.
The editorial showcases some incredible pieces from Champion’s archive, with an overall aesthetic leaning towards the collegiate. Ohio Northern University and Stanford are both on deck, as are T-shirts that incorporate Snoopy for the hell of it. Being vintage wear, the silhouettes are considerably tighter and defined – a far cry from the loose fits of today. Though Champion is the name of the game, the featured pants come courtesy of Stan Ray, with footwear from Bass Weejuns and Converse.
Browse the full editorial above, and stay tuned for further Champion features.
