Upcycled Activewear Clothing

The Reigning Champ x WHR Repair Project Purposes Old Clothes

— October 1, 2022 — Eco
The Reigning Champ x WHR Repair Project collection is a series of garments crafted in collaboration between the brands to offer a decidedly more sustainable take on activewear. The collection includes the midweight crewneck sweater and a hoodie, which are both crafted with a high-quality construction in mind. The garments are hand-embroidered with inspiration from the Japanese mending techniques sashiko and kintsugi to highlight their inherently rustic appeal.

The Reigning Champ x WHR Repair Project collection is limited to just 100 examples of each style, which are available via the brand's web store at a $250 starting price point. The garments come in several color options that communicate a sense of simplicity for wearers of all walks to don.
