Champloo, founded by Derrick Houston Jr, is back with a new Spring Sunset Capsule featuring a wide range of t-shirts to varsity jackets, even including a pair of custom Champloo NMDs. With such originality and unique taste in the way that different materials and colors interact, I’m always excited to see what Houston has coming next. The theme of this collection is the sunset and the mix of colors that are seen in the sunset, and the shop page is headed with a quote, reading:
Harmony is understanding the differences in all things similar and accepting that those differences are reflections of small parts of ourselves. Only through the acceptance of these differences and similarities can we truly accept ourselves and each other. We are sometimes bright, sometimes dark, sometimes vibrant and sometimes dull. But together, we are the sunset. A mix of many things.
My favorite piece out of the collection at the moment is the “Tumbling Sky” varsity jacket, a maroon and gold jacket with complex designs and stitching all over it, including a “C” on the front and a colorful sunset on the back made of Chinese silks. So head over to the Champloo shop here and cop something to support the brand.
