clothsurgeon x Champion
Champion team up with bespoke, London streetwear brand clothsurgeon to produce Ivy League inspired collection.
This year, Champion and clothsurgeon join forces to produce a capsule collection reminiscent of collegiate style from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, with an added streetwear spin.
Combining Champion’s sportswear heritage as an iconic sweatshirt brand and clothsurgeon’s tailoring expertise, this collaboration sees two worlds collide, boasting key pieces that include vintage style cardigans, letterman hoodies and varsity jackets, alongside classic sweats and tees. The collection seamlessly brings together original Champion silhouettes, partnered with the contemporary, clothsurgeon aesthetic instilling the DNA of both brands into each garment through fabric use, shape and fits.
With the philosophy of both brands at the core, the collection showcases how the luxry style and aspirational world of Ivy League students combined with the raw function of sportswear can go hand-in-hand, proving that anyone from any walk of life – through hard-work, determination and self-belief – can become a champion.
Founder of the bespoke streetwear label, Rav Matharu says “I have an obsession with vintage sportswear so to work with Champion was a real exciting opportunity to do something new for the Champion brand in terms of silhouette and fabrication, whilst still keeping both brands DNA intact. Creating a true, authentic collaboration and a nod to an era where we took a great deal of inspiration from.”
