Kanye’s Yeezy x adidas line has gained notoriety in the five short seasons its been alive. The footwear is some of the most after silhouettes on the market. Yesterday, Kanye dropped the Calabasas themed capsule collection for Yeezy x adidas online and pieces were gone within five minuets. There was no traditional publicity for the line, instead, the capsule gained exposure from Kanye and Kim wearing pieces for the collection, like the sweat pants and sneakers.The collection dropped without much warning, and it came and went very quickly. Kanye’s love for fashion has translated onto the streets, making his personal style items the wants for every street-style aficionado. The reason for collection selling out so quickly is because West has become an influencer for street-wear culture, taking current trends and elevating them, even creating new ones. Crewnecks, baseball caps, sweatpants and ’80s reebok inspired sneakers made up the range.

Most Champion hoodies weren’t just Champion brand, they were hoodies that had the familiar “C” logo at the wrist but boasted logos of football teams, or company logos worn on retreats. It has been a brand that has been favored by athletes on and off the fields since the 1920s, and as early as the ’70s was adopted as a streetwear brand. The Champion hoodie has been a blank canvas of expression and promotion. Fashion has become increasingly fixated with the merge of comfort and style, allowing many sportswear brands to tap into new markets. Champion is one of those classic athletic labels that now offer a more modern alternative that maintains comfort and takes on a certain versatility to increase its appeal to the style enthusiasts.

Big name collaborations has elevated the brand from their days on racks at department stores. With the rise of the athliesure trend and streetwear, Champion has quickly become a star.

Vetements took a Champion hoodie from $25 to $1,000, which played on the consumer’s love for nostalgia, whats new and highly sough after. Streetwear brands like Stüssy have teamed up with Champion as well, allowing the younger streetwear set to get to know the brand that has been around forever.
