Champion × MTV

Champion Athleticwear launches new 90’s-inspired collaboration with MTV

Champion Athleticwear and MTV are launching a limited-edition clothing and it fulfills all of your vintage street style dreams.

In the collection, Champion combines its classic streetwear designs with MTV’s 90’s aesthetic. The retro clothing collaboration celebrates the styles of hip-hop’s past that inspire the fashions of the future. With iconic prints, retro looks and bright colors, Champion × MTV is reminiscent of the time rappers went from musicians to style icons. The collection features iconic styles from men’s crewneck shirts, tanks, and jackets to women’s body-con dresses and onesies. 

The limited edition Men’s Champion life tank is a prime choice to consider for the holiday weekend. Available in two colors, blue multi and yellow, the flashy top is sure to set off some fireworks. For a fully retro ‘fit, you can pair the tank with the crinkle nylon short. 

Quality is the foundation of the Champion x MTV line. The tank is crafted from thick, heavyweight 7 oz. 100 cotton for durability. The standard, classic fit perfect for easy going mobility is what sets this offering apart. It also features minimalistic intentional branding, a Champion x MTV jock tag at the hem, and a C patch logo at back neck.

To highlight the profound influence that the network and Champion had on the next generation of artists, Champion and MTV have enlisted iconic rapper Jadakiss. Jadakiss, who has had a profound impact on both the music and fashion industries, will showcase the retro capsule collection.

“There’s not many brands that make you automatically think iconic, but Champion and MTV are exactly that,” said Jadakiss. “Coming up in the hip-hop scene, and till this day, you got to always look your best. Champion was one of those brands you could throw on and look and feel your best no matter the occasion. This MTV and Champion collaboration makes sense cause of what they mean to the culture.”

Reasonably priced between $30-80, the collection of both men’s and women’s pieces will be available at Champion.com, MTVShop.com, FootLocker.com, FinishLine.com, Eastbay.com, ChampsSports.com, JimmyJazz.com and Nordstrom.com on June 24.

The Men’s Guide to Swimwear

Even if you don’t swim, everyone needs to pack some swimwear on their summer holiday. Lounging by the pool or tanning on the beach demands comfortable, cool and quick-drying clothing that won’t fill up with sand and keeps you looking stylish while relaxing abroad. Bondi Joe men’s swimwear is by far the best alternative to get a lightweight, soft, smooth, and eco swimwear. Made with materials that ensure you a quick-dry, and thick but comfortable fabric that protects you and makes you feel good wearing them. All the company’s merch is made from recycled bottles fabrics, that means you can be fashionable and eco friendly at the same time.

So, here’s our quick guide to picking out the best men’s swimwear this season:

Styles of swimwear

Different holiday destinations have different style codes: for example, in Ibiza swim shorts of all types are seen everywhere while, in some countries, most notably France, if you go to a public pool you may be required to wear tight-fitting swimwear.

Briefs, trunks and jammers

These tight-fitting lycra models are ideal for sport swimming as they don’t fill with water. Briefs (aka “Speedo style”) offer the least coverage, trunks are more square cut and may extend down the thigh, while jammers are the longest cut and some designs reach down to the knee. Most people usually leave this sort of swimwear at home and prefer something looser and less fitted for holiday swimming.

Swim shorts

Swim shorts come in varying lengths and cuts from a skimpy high-leg cut (often referred to as classic, retro or volley short) to a long length Bermuda or boardshort style that reaches to the knee. Most fall to mid-thigh and have an internal mesh brief to offer additional support, while some come with handy zip pockets which can be useful for a few coins or keys.

Board shorts are a type of swim short that is usually a longer length and has a drawstring waist. They often don’t have the internal mesh, and some prefer to wear brief-style swimwear underneath.Trunks can refer to tight cut swimwear or a type of swim short that is mid-thigh in length, often with an elasticated rather than drawstring waist.

Materials

Most swimwear is made from polyester or nylon as it is quick to dry and doesn’t hold water, but lycra or elastane is used for tighter fitting swimwear to stop it from going baggy. Polyester swim shorts are typically preferred for use in swimming pools, as nylon is not chlorine-resistant, which leads to colour fade and the fabric degradation.

Sizing

Swimwear is usually sized using relative sizing – small, medium, large, etc. – so if you aren’t sure which size you need, you should check the manufacturer’s size guide. Some styles are sold, like shorts and trousers, by waist size. As waists are usually elasticated or adjustable, you may find sizing up or down offers the most comfortable fit depending on your hip and thigh measurements.

Designs

Almost anything goes when it comes to swim shorts. Board shorts are traditionally brightly patterned – often with floral motifs. Stripes are fashionable this year, and if you want to choose a pair of shorts that won’t look dated, you can’t go too wrong with black or navy and white colourways.

Accessories

In Italy, it is common for swim caps to be worn, so you may wish to pack one. Lycra caps are more comfortable to wear than silicone or latex. You may also want to pack a pair of goggles, since these are essential if you are training and useful if you want to see underwater at any time. Make sure they fit and are comfortable, or they will let water in.

If you’ve got a bit of extra space in your suitcase, then an easy-to-use snorkel mask allows you to snorkel with a reduced risk of breathing in water.

RNW Garments

RNW Garments is a Los Angeles based independent street wear label founded in 2011. The brand philosophy “Since Birth” is born out of their tagline NO GUTS, NO GLORY. Hailing from South Central LA, designer Raphael Na’te Walton has organically grown RNW Garments to be a brand for people of all walks of life no matter their ancestry or background.

For all the old and young souls still chasing their glory, to those who have achieved the greatest achievements, but strive for more; RNW Garments embody the hustler spirit and serves as a symbol of that fire within all of us to chase our own glory.

RNW currently offers traditional street wear pieces such as tees, hoodies, jackets and headwear but will soon transition into cut and sew production which will allow founder Raphael Na’te Walton for the opportunity to bring the brand to new heights.

American Apparel Fall 2018 Collection

American Apparel announces the debut of its Fall 2018 Collection. With a curated selection of brand new arrivals and returning iconic favorites, the collection includes an array of denim, tees, leggings, skirts, hoodies, and outerwear in a wide range of colors and prints, available exclusively at AmericanApparel.com.

Khairan Majid, American Apparel’s head of merchandising, says the collection “offers an inclusive and refreshing take on fashion basics with longevity. We wanted to break down barriers with gender-neutral silhouettes and a wider size range. The warm, neutral color palette and beautiful luxe fabrics elevate this range, while still keeping the price point accessible.”

The season’s offerings include the anticipated return of the Riding Pant. This highly-coveted style is a high-waist silhouette with the perfect amount of stretch, now with an updated waistband and improved fit. Available in Black, Navy, Silver Birch, and Lieutenant, the Riding Pant retails at $68.00 with sizing from XS to XXL.

Another returning favorite for fall is the bestselling Tennis Skirt, an American Apparel icon and back-to-school essential. This pleated skirt is rendered in lightweight Gabardine polyester, with a wide range of colorways including classic plaid, retailing at $48.00.

The season welcomes the arrival of American Apparel’s first-ever outerwear collection, beginning with a lightweight, year-round Trench Coat – the brand’s interpretation of the classic English silhouette. The Trench Coat is available in Black, Vintage Khaki, navy, Lieutenant, Black/Navy, and Lieutenant/Mauve, with sizes ranging from XS to XXL, retailing at $98.00. Also on the outerwear docket: a Bomber Jacket, with reversible construction for a modern update, retailing at $118.00 in Black/Navy and Lieutenant/Mauve. Rounding out the outerwear highlights are the slick Duckie Puffer and Duckie Raincoat, available in Black, Freesia, Mauve, and Palace Blue from XXS to XXL (priced from $88.00 to $98.00). Polar Fleece also makes an appearance, offering superior comfort and next-level softness, with a Pant and a Quarter Zip pullover, available in Black and Palace Blue with contrasting trim, from XS to XXL, retailing at $46.00 and $48.00.

American Apparel’s Fall 2018 collection also launches a new corduroy collection: 100% Cotton styles that are soft to the touch, incredibly comfortable, and vintage-inspired. Corduroy styles include a Zip Skirt, a Skirt Overall, a Letterman Jacket, and a versatile Shacket, available in Lieutenant, Hot Sauce, Dark Honey, and Navy. Corduroy pieces retail from $58.00 to $88.00, with sizes ranging from XS to XL.

Texture plays a key role this season, as American Apparel expands its Thick Rib collection. Thick Rib is a medium- weight cotton-poly blend designed to atter and shape the body, as evidenced by the new Soccer Jersey, Bodysuit, Crewneck Dress, Midi Tube Dress, Crop Turtleneck, Bralette, and Flare Pant. Thick Rib colorways are Black, Star White, Lavender, Freesia, and Maroon; sizing runs from XS to XL and styles are retailed from $28.00 to $44.00.

Denim plays a key role this fall, with a Denim Pocket Skirt ($58.00) in XS to XL; a Button Flare Jean in Vintage Blue ($68.00) in sizes 24 to 32; a Crop Pencil Jean ($68.00) in sizes 24 to 32; and a new men’s fit: the Straight Jean, made with 14-ounce denim for an authentic vintage feel. The Straight Jean is available in a Dark Wash and Medium Wash, retailing at $68.00 from size 30 to 34.

And in classic American Apparel tradition, fall includes a wide variety of premium basics, from iconic tees, tanks, and pullovers to hoodies, bodysuits, shorts, and much more. Mix-and-match foundational pieces for everyday wear and easy layering – for workouts, weekends, and everything in between. Adds Majid: “We believe in individuality and self- expression, and I think this collection embodies both.”
