Just like Andy receiving Buzz Lightyear for the first time, Pixar fans will no doubt be unable to keep their hands off the latest collaboration between Champion and Beams. Designed in conjunction with Japanese artist Yu Nagaba, the new Toy Story collection comprises 6 unique designs of sweatshirts and t-shirts.
Champion pushes the gym-class look with its grey, black and white sweatshirts emblazoned with the names of Woody, Buzz and Pixar. Each of the names are outlined with the characters’ main colour schemes – red and yellow for Woody, purple and green for Buzz, and black and white for Pixar. The sweatshirts also come with a Champion “C” stitched on the left sleeve and individual character tokens on the right.
BEAMS rounds up this collection with t-shirts sporting stripped-down portraits of Woody and Buzz, drawn by Nagaba. The iconic duo adopt a cheeky pose, reminiscent of a mock-up hearkening back to the first Toy Story. Nagaba’s distinctive art style is laid against backdrops of orange, black and white.
The Champion X BEAMS collection is now available for pre-order but with notable exceptions: both the “Pixar” sweatshirt and the black BEAMS t-shirt are exclusive to the BEAMS Roppongi Hills store. In the meantime, you can cop the other two sweatshirts and t-shirts for $120 USD and $40 USD respectively.
