Champion x Rick Owens Unveil Latest Collaborative Range

Champion and Rick Owens have joined forces once again. Continuing their collision of sportswear and utilitarian styles, the seasoned collaborators have lifted the curtain on their Summer 2024 collection.

Spanning a slew of unisex silhouettes, the duo’s latest delivery – which surfaces in hues of black, white and silver – continues to meld Champion’s athletic legacy with Rick Owens’ signature silhouettes. This time around, the pair leans heavily into mesh stylings and loose draping across most of the collaborative garments.

“WHEN I STARTED MY LABEL IN THE NINETIES, I HAND DREW MY LOGO AS A CROSS BETWEEN THE CHAMPION LOGO AND A JEAN PATOU PERFUME LABEL…” Rick Owens shared in an Instagram post.

“THEY BOTH HAD A SIMILAR VINTAGE CALLIGRAPHIC FLAIR… I WASN’T CONSCIOUS OF IT THEN, BUT I SEE NOW HOW THAT BALANCE HAS DEFINED MY ONGOING AESTHETIC — A 1930S BLACK-AND-WHITE MOVIE VERSION OF BOTH AMERICAN BLUNTNESS AND EUROPEAN GLAM… I REMEMBER MY OLDER, COOLER COUSINS WEARING CHAMPION SWEATSHIRTS AND SHORTS IN THE SEVENTIES, CEMENTING THAT LOGO IN MY BRAIN…”

The Jumbo Windbreaker arguably leads the pack, surfacing in a striking silver shade and polished off with co-branded hits throughout. Other standout pieces include different styles of shorts, vest tank tops and tees, as well as a full lineup of wearable accessories.

As in past collections, the pentagram is stamped upon a bevy of the garments. Rick Owens says more on this as well.

“THE PENTAGRAM I HAVE ADDED TO IT REPRESENTS A VOTE AGAINST MORALISTIC BIGOTRY AND INTOLERANCE, WHICH HAS ALWAYS BEEN AT THE TOP OF MY AGENDA. SERENDIPITOUSLY, CHAMPION HAS A FACTORY IN ITALY 15KM FROM MINE, ALLOWING US TO PRODUCE A FULLY MADE-IN-ITALY COLLECTION IN THE SAME REGION UNDER INCREASINGLY ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE CONDITIONS”

Check out the lookbook above and shop the collection now at the Rick Owens official webstore.
