This week Portland's MLS Champions, The Timbers celebrated their success by announcing a collaboration with Canadian sportswear label Reigning Champ. At a private party held just off the park blocks, at gallery Augen, RC unveiled a new custom release dubbed the "Champions Pack" in partner with the recent champs.
"ONWARD ROSE CITY."
True to the sportswear brand's nature the pieces highlight quality cotton and windbreaker fabrics, with a minimalist color pallet in stark black. "Onward Rose City" sits on the chest of the staple T-shirt for the collection, as a tribute to the recent collaboration. The capsule includes a full outfit with sweatpants, T-shirt, sweatshirt and zip warm-up jacket.
But the highlight for the evening was on display front and center: the MLS national trophy. Complete with a personal bodyguard and all, we had a chance to see the rare memento in person before it was carted off to a secure location. With the combination of Portland's most successful sports franchise and Canada's top athletic label, the night was nothing short of a celebration.
