Rick Owens has continued his collaborative streak, following up Converse and Dr. Martens releases by partnering with Champion. The resulting capsule is the second collaboration between the sportswear label and the designer, following their Spring/Summer 2020 collection.
For Spring/Summer 2021, Owens has continued to look towards Ancient Greece as an influence, bringing those cues to Champion’s sportswear archive. The collection features sweatshirts, sweatpants, tees, shorts and even jockstraps, as well as accessories such as athletic-inspired caps, headbands and bucket hats, tote bags, pocket purses and face coverings. Many pieces feature Rick Owens’ logo alongside the Champion branding that inspired it, while others prominently sport embroidery of Owens’ pentagram logo.
Throughout the collection, Owens has used recycled nylons, organic cottons and locally-sourced materials, while the collection will come feature plastic-free packaging produced from biodegradable materials and recycled paper.
