Reigning Champ’s Kyoto Black Capsule Underwent a Special Dyeing Process

Reigning Champ is well-known for its terry-crafted essentials, be it their plush hoodies, cozy sweatpants, or even blankets. While their catalog already offers a rather wide array of subtle colors, the brand’s newest capsule tags in a Kyoto-based dye house that has worked with a single hue for well over a century, and it’s about as brooding a shade of black as anyone’s ever seen. With the introduction of their Kyoto Black collection, Reigning Champ invites athletes to embrace the dark side.

While the dye house is more adept at working with Japanese formal wear, the Canadian performance brand is embellishing this deep shade of black, building on “the values of process, technique, and expertise,” all three of which are qualities these two have honed. This particular process is made possible by way of the inclusion of indigo, tea leaves, bark, and other elements that result in this robust hue. The garments that received this special dying treatment are some of the brand’s finest, including their t-shirt, pullover hoodie, and slim sweatpants, as well as the “relaxed” version of each of them, providing a looser fit than their standard products.

Whether black is your color of choice or you’re just trying to feel a bit stealthier than usual, Reigning Champ’s Kyoto Black capsule is available on the brand’s site, ranging in price from $100 to $230.

Purchase: $100+
