The cardigan features a fitted cut with a handful of deconstructed parts. Long patches extend from the elbow to the sleeve cuff, sewn over exposed seams. There’s some cinching along the shoulders and torso, too, details that are normally hidden from the exteriors but have been intentionally shown in this piece. Other details like silver-toned zippers round off the garment’s design. The sweatpants are also deconstructed but come with a more subtle design. Contrasting stitches outline the back pockets, complemented by flat locked seams along the sides, while other features like Reigning Champ’s logo below the left pocket and belt loops around the waist complete the piece.
Junya Watanabe and Reigning Champ’s 2021 capsule will be available soon on Reigning Champ’s website — prices have yet to be confirmed.
