Champion opens at Shangri-La Plaza this October

CHAMPION, a classic brand best known for its timeless athletic apparel, is Shangri-La Plaza’s newest store. Established in 1919, the American brand offers a full line of hoodies and sweatshirts, tees, track pants, baseball caps, jersey shorts, and other basic athletic wear for men, women, and kids. Each piece comes with the recognizable red, white, and blue C logo or the word Champion. Some are made in Reverse Weave fabric that maintains the shape of the clothing and prevents it from shrinking, making sure it stays in the wardrobe for a long time. This century-old brand that pioneered the modern hoodie has been enjoying a resurgence when it recently earned the approval of the younger market following a successful series of collaborations with streetwear labels like Supreme, Vetements, and Off White, boosting Champion’s street cred and overall profile. Champion has also committed to be socially responsible and more sustainable. It has recently launched a sustainable streetwear collection called Re:Bound, which features pieces made from recycled Reverse Weave fabric that’s usually discarded during production. The Champion store is located at the Level 3 of the mall’s Main Wing.
