OK so the Summer of Sport isn’t going quite the way we may have planned, we’ve still got Wimbledon and the start of the premiership is only round the corner plus we still have the Chess Boxing Championships to look forward to, honestly it exists. Now to mark the not so magnificent Sports led Summer Urban Outfitters have brought together two brands to produce one sterling range.
Herschel Supply Co, Founded in 2009 by brothers Jamie and Lyndon Cormack in their hometown of Vancouver, Canada and manufactures the finest backpacks, bags, travel goods and accessories. Now Champion, an American Sportswear brand with over 100 years of heritage are probably best known for inventing the Hooded & Full Zipper front Sweatshirts known as the “Side-line Sweatshirt, a hooded version of the original crewneck garment, targeting American Football players.
After that short educational lesson, we get to the crux of this post, in that Urban Outfitters had the foresight to bring these two brands together, to produce a range of backpacks and duffle bags exclusively for the retailer. Herschel Supply’s classic Heritage and Sutton silhouettes are infused with Champion’s athletic spin, making for a unique collection of bags that display both brand’s key materials. Herschel Supply detailing includes coloured pebbled leather zipper pulls and diamonds, internal red and white striped liner and 8-point plastic zippers. Complimenting these features are the application of Champion’s eponymous fleece to the front pockets and sportswear mesh to the bags internal pockets. The exterior of the Heritage and the Sutton feature both brand’s woven logos side by side, with an additional co-branded label on the interior. Five colour combinations are available, each designed with classic sportswear hues of red, navy, grey, black and white.
