March 26th 2021 sees the official launch of a second collaboration between Champion and Rick Owens.
Following the success of their first capsule collection that debut at Paris Fashion Week in June 2019, Champion and Rick Owens are pleased to announce the official launch of this second collaborative collection dropping at the end of March 2021.
Celebrating Champion’s rich athletic heritage and Rick Owens’ signature contemporary aesthetic, the collection has been designed and developed for both men and women, carefully combining creativity and sustainability.
Using 100% organic cottons and recycled nylons, the collection was produced using predominantly locally sourced materials, whilst all packaging will incorporate plastic free, biodegradable materials and recycled paper.
The collection continues with a strong monochrome colour palette with the addition of some subtle color accents for this season. Key iconic products stories such as Sweatshirts, Sweatpants and Tees, coupled with mesh shorts and lightweight outerwear pieces have all been reimagined and carefully finished with a unique Champion logo.
Essential accessories include; athletic inspired caps, headbands and bucket hats, as well as elegant tote bags, pocket purses and face coverings compliment the sustainable story.
The collection will launch on March 26, 2021. The collection will be available in Rick Owens stores and JOYCE.
Champion’s distinct brand image, which dates back to 1919, is defined by an American athletic heritage and a reputation for providing innovative and durable products.
This is epitomized by the classic Reverse Weave sweatshirt that since its introduction in 1934 has helped to establish Champion globally as the definitive and original Sweatshirt Brand.
About Rick Owens
Rick Owens launched his eponymous label in Los Angeles in 1994, operating out of a raw storefront off Hollywood Boulevard. In 2003, Owens moved to Paris, setting up his home and atelier inside a historic five-story building that previously served as offices for former French President François Mitterrand. His runway collections have been mounted in Paris since then. Diffusion collections that complement the original label for women and for men include RICKOWENSLILIES and DRKSHDW. In July of 2005, he introduced a furniture collection using raw plywood, marble, and moose antlers, based on art deco and brutalist shapes. The furniture collection has since been shown at galleries and museums including the Musée d’Art Moderne and Musée Pompidou in Paris and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
