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.



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.
