Fresh off their collab with MGK, German streetwear kingpins SNIPES drop a serious summer capsule collection with none other than Chris Brown.
Designed in collaboration and riffing off Chris Brown’s own style, energy and attitude, the new SNIPES x Chris Brown Summer 2016 capsule features two hoodies in on-trend seasonal pastel blue and pink. The tracksuit renaissance continues, with SNIPES fielding strong roadman vibes through their sky blue color-blocked poly-Terrycloth edition, while a neoprene football shirt featuring SNIPES’s own crest and chevroned patterns rounds out the drop.
According to Breezy, “SNIPES fosters creativity and understands that artists evolve,” before adding that, “as an artist, working with SNIPES, I wasn’t forced to compromise, and was fully able to express my creativity.”
To be fair, you can’t argue with the man’s talent. The founder of Culture Beyond Your Evolution has been in the record label business since 15. Growing up in a gas station with his father and attending church on the regs, he signed his first record deal at 15 before hightailing it up to number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with club staple Run It! shortly after.
In 2011, he won his first Grammy award for F.A.M.E. while signed to Sony, but his wider career has been characterized by constant experimentation: not only in fashion and music, but through dance and as an actor since 2007.
