Hypebeast recently met up with Reigning Champ’s Kenta Goto and Doug Barber to learn how the company turned ideas into finished products.
“The process — as shown to us by Kenta Goto and Doug Barber — begins each season with fabric selection. Working with advance orders, materials are divided up by weight, after which pieces are hand-sketched for the creation of a tech pack (a digital layout with comprehensive specifications). Orders are then placed for hardware and trims and the tech pack is passed along to Reigning Champ’s pattern-maker for a full-sized pattern of each design. Following the arrival of the fabric, thread is chosen and the final pattern and finished tech pack is sent to the factory for production.” – Hypebeast
Reigning Champ will be arriving soon.
