Champion‘s Japanese branch is well-regarded for its retro approach to design, with plenty of domestic fanatics who collect vintage pieces from the brand’s century-long history. Champion Japan’s latest sub-label, “Homage to Archives,” debuted for Fall/Winter 2019 and continues for Spring/Summer 2020 with a fresh assortment of seasonal styles, taking copious notes from decades-old garments.

Intelligent fabric choices inform the goods, from the relaxed-fit nylon ox coaches jacket to the standout patchwork sweater, which pieces together various colors of Reverse Weave cotton. Elsewhere, a long-sleeved nylon pullover and matching pants update a ’60s-era design with adjustable zipper pockets and pull tabs, while a bio-washed sweater vest yields both an old school silhouette and finish. “Middleweight” jersey T-shirts offer subtle flair compared to an open collar shirt and easy pant set, printed with an all-over vintage Champion logo.

Visit Champion Japan’s web store to shop the items and take a closer look at the thoughtful detailing that informs the range.

Recently, Levi’s Vintage Clothing introduced a similarly heritage-inspired item with its Japanese-made 501 denim jeans.
