This season Champion X Todd Snyder is available in the UK for the first time, and Wellgosh proudly welcome the Spring/Summer Collection through the doors as one of the few stockists in the country. Inspired by Champion’s comprehensive archive, Todd Snyder resurrects classic pieces from the New York brand’s rich back catalogue. Todd Snyder creates a fresh seasonal line whilst retaining a classic sportswear aesthetic, crafted from luxury assembled reverse weave cotton, with subtle detailing and vintage sportswear cuts.
Legendary designer Todd Snyder seemed a likely choice to recruit for a collaborative collection of luxury sportswear with a heritage American sportswear label Champion given his vast experience designing for iconic American brands. Todd Snyder previously designed outerwear for Polo Ralph Lauren, followed by stints at Gap and J.Crew as Director of Menswear.
The Spring/Summer 2015 Collection consists of vintage athletic staples, including: the Vintage Zip Hoodie, Reverse Weave Crew Sweat and Classic Crew T-Shirt. The Reverse Weave Sweats are constructed in Canada, a nation famed for its expertise in premium cotton construction and the
other styles featured in the collection are crafted in Italy. Despite a heavy resurgence of Americana inspired collections as of late, Todd Snyder has managed to create a stand-out collection that truly evokes premium quality construction and an authentic vintage aesthetic.
