Following a collaboration with District Vision for performance eyewear, Vancouver-based label Reigning Champ continues to showcase its versatility and mastery of athleisure with a new Reigning Champ vs. Prince tennis collection. Tapping into Prince's competition-proven expertise in tennis equipment, Reigning Champ delivers a welcoming and all-rounded collection of goods for both seasoned tennis players and newbies alike.
The 10-piece capsule is found in Prince's classic typeface and clean green-white color palette featuring limited-edition hard goods and apparel for both on and off-court wear.
"Given Prince’s origins in New Jersey and a great history of players from the tri-state area, we elected to highlight the antithesis of country club tennis, celebrating the public court grinders at Washington Market Park in Tribeca," Prince wrote in a press release. "We accompany Vicente Muñoz and James Powers, former D1 collegiate athletes, as they take to the court in select styles from the collection, captured under the bright lights against a quintessential New York City backdrop."
Apparel pieces include moisture-wicking tees, court-ready Solotex mesh polos and shorts, crewneck sweaters, and pullover hoodies — all of which arrive with green contrast stitching and durable finishes. Rounding out the assemblage are bucket hats, visors, two-tone jacquard graphic towels, tennis balls, and an original Graphite 108 racquet fit for intermediate to advanced players.
The collection is priced from $17 to $200 USD and will be available beginning June 28 on the Reigning Champ website, at physical stores, and select retailers around the world.
