Champion has recently enjoyed a bit of a resurgence, perhaps signaling a return to the brand’s glory days — a time when its reverse weave fleece sweatshirts were a mainstay in every guy’s wardrobe. In the meantime, Champion Japan is releasing full-blown collections that expertly distill its heritage American roots. The lookbook for the brand’s Spring/Summer 2013 range is a prime example, shot through with an appealing throwback sensibility seemingly transported from an earlier time. Contemporary silhouettes are combined with a strong varsity motif, with the collection restoring Champion’s former lustre through wearable pieces that seem to tell a story. Check out more looks below.
