Earlier this year, clothsurgeon and sportswear giant Champion teamed up on an Ivy League-inspired collection, drawing inspiration from the postwar era. Now the duo has returned to bring a fresh take on their nostalgic collaboration for Fall/Winter 2019.
The updated capsule sees iconic vintage collegiate pieces like hoodies, cardigans and letterman jackets elevated with silk and velvet textures. Taking original Champion garments, clothsurgeon incorporates unique designs and fabrics to give each item a bespoke look and feel evoking both label’s signature styles. Athletic sweatpants get refreshed into tailored slacks, while sweatshirts and jackets see more structured shapes with details like chain-stitched embroidery and custom patches.
“I have an obsession with vintage sportswear, so to work with Champion during their 100th year anniversary was a real exciting opportunity. To be able do something new for the Champion brand in terms of silhouette and fabrication, whilst still keeping both brands DNA intact,” stated clothsurgeon founder Rav Matharu.
Shop the capsule now at Champion London, select retailers in Europe and the UAE, or online at clothsurgeon’s web shop.
