Inspired by the Human Potential Movement, Reigning Champ and District vision have formed a partnership that captures the essence of that holistic mission. The overarching design behind the Reigning Champ x District Vision Radical Retreat Kit embodies a synthesis of body and mind in that vein. The kit includes the Nagata Speed Blade sunglasses, a t-shirt, sweatshirt, sweatpants, sweatshorts, towel, and travel case. The case is adorned with original artwork by Filip Pagowski that succinctly illustrates what the kit stands for in the image of the mind’s eye.
The gradient lens of the Nagata Speed Blade sunglasses was inspired by the lighting conditions designers experienced during a retreat between indoor and outdoor meditation sessions. Their top-to-bottom tint protects against overhead sunlight while allowing more subtle light exposure for a clearer field of vision during active use. Each piece of athletic apparel in the collection comes in lightweight terry cotton dyed in a tranquil tear colorway. The same original artwork on the Radical Retreat travel case decorates the back of the collection’s white pima jersey t-shirt which features District Vision’s own logo on the chest. Speaking of the travel case, its watertight chassis is equipped with an automatic pressure valve to balance interior pressure while ensuring its contents are dry. The stainless steel case can be submerged in up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes.
Each article in the Reigning Champ x District Vision Radical Retreat Kit is designed with a unique style that would have fit right in with the counterculture movement that it draws its inspiration from.
