Sitting Down With Todd Snyder
Style | Interview | Michael Tesoriere
So, read and enjoy!
The Todd Snyder x Champion collection obviously draws it's inspiration from vintage sportswear. What else would you say inspired this collaboration?
What did you go to school for?
I originally went for Architecture, Business, and then finally in my last two years I was like... I got it! I'm going into design.
When I worked at J.Crew, I launched the Liquor Store. In doing that; I started the collaboration with Timex, I started the collaboration with Red Wing, I started the collaboration with Alden, but this (Champion) was always on my shortlist of ones I wanted to do.
What is your favourite piece from the collection and why?
My favourite piece from the collection would be this reverse weave sweatshirt (similar). It's like that sweatshirt I talked about from College. It's just a great, universal piece. I like mixing and tailoring it in, I could even see this under a blazer.
Are you making another Champion collection next season?
I should have it pretty much indefinitely, but I mean for the next 3 years we have it.
Are you going to be doing anything new next season?
Women's and we are also doing some pretty cool outerwear. We're doing varsity jackets and stuff like that.
Are you going to go into shoes, accessories, or anything like that?
Yeah, we are going to go into shoes, accessories, hats, and stuff. We are going to do everything. (Can't wait)
Incase you were wondering, Todd is wearing the salt and pepper fleece cardigan (similar) and I am wearing an American Needle cap and Hank USA oxford (similar).
