Brooklyn Circus & Todd Snyder Link Up For A Retro Boxing-Inspired Capsule

Jan 18, 2021

Category: Style

On top of form and technique taught for bouts in the ring, boxing instills its practitioners with values like hard work, commitment, and dedication. Football and basketball admittedly do teach similar off-the-field life lessons, though boxing has undeniably played a more substantial role in black resistance than any other sport. And it’s this cultural significance that Todd Snyder is celebrating in its latest collaborative capsule collection with fellow New York fashion outfit, Brooklyn Circus.

Comprised of more than a dozen entirely new items — including various sweaters, crew neck and hoodie sweatshirts, matching sweat pants, and numerous graphic tees — the limited-edition capsule was penned by Todd Synder for Champion and Brooklyn Circus founder and designer, Ouigi Theodore—the latter of whom is a Haitian-American immigrant raised in the southern borough’s Crown Heights neighborhood. Made in a family-owned factory in Canada, the capsule takes inspiration from vintage boxing gear with its myriad of retro athletic graphics and iconography printed or embroidered onto the collection. Another element that influenced Theodore when designing the capsule was a 1970s photo of Muhammad Ali taken at a training camp in Pennsylvania. “When I discovered this image of Ali wearing a sweatshirt, the collection fell into place,” explains Ouigi. Available now, the Brooklyn Circus x Champion for Todd Snyder Capsule Collection starts at $98.
