Rick Owens and Champion launch capsule collection
Rick Owens, fashion’s master of the subversive, has teamed up with sportswear giant Champion for a monochromatic sporty capsule collection.
Available in stores and online this week, the range features togas, loincloths and robes, but also shorts, hoodies, bodysuits and trench coats.
“I remember my older, cooler cousins wearing Champion sweatshirts and shorts in the seventies, cementing that logo in my brain,” Owens told Dazed Digital. “When I started my label in the nineties, I hand drew my logo as a cross between the Champion logo and a Jean Patou perfume label… They both had a similar vintage calligraphic flair… I wasn’t conscious of it then, but I see now how that balance has defined my ongoing aesthetic.”
Owens revealed Champion has a factory in Italy close to his own: “This allows us to produce a fully made in Italy collection in the same region under increasingly environmentally responsible conditions.”
