Editor’s Notes: First seen at his Paris Fashion Week SS20 show, the Rick Owens x Champion collaboration has now arrived – just in time for any fashion-goths working on their summer body.
The collaboration includes mesh shorts, oversized togas, bodysuits, windbreakers, trench coats, mesh vests, and Champion’s signature reverse weave sweats with a new black, gray, and white logo.
Owens explains that seeing cooler kids in Champion during his formative years informed the collaboration and his eponymous brand’s logo. In his signature all-caps style, he states, “WHEN I STARTED MY LABEL IN THE ’90s, I HAND DREW MY LOGO AS A CROSS BETWEEN THE CHAMPION LOGO AND A JEAN PATOU PERFUME LABEL… I REMEMBER MY OLDER, COOLER COUSINS WEARING CHAMPION SWEATSHIRTS AND SHORTS IN THE SEVENTIES, CEMENTING THAT LOGO IN MY BRAIN…”
