Champion's Newest Capsule Is Designed With Sashiko Stitching

A sewing technique that dates back to the Japanese Edo period.

Champion harmonizes contemporary design with the traditional folk practice of Sashiko stitching for its latest release. Pulling roots from China, the Japanese practice was pragmatically used to strengthen points of wear and create warmer clothes through embroidering techniques. Eventually, Sashiko transcended its practical roots and became a decorative art form.

Champion uses the technique to ornament — by hand — a collection of quilted hoodies, a tote bag, sweatshirts, and shearling-lined zip-up jumpers with its notable insignia, while an orange-sewed “Champion” detailing makes its way throughout the soft goods.

No price for the garments and accessories have been set, but expect a launch January 2 only at Champion Japan stores. In other fashion news, Necessity Sense presents its latest editorial in Taipei.
