Simply put, Boston-raised, LA-based designer, Derrick Houston Jr. has undoubtedly lived his best life in 2017. Working day in and day out on his craft alongside spending time with some of the music world’s most prominent figures, he has carefully developed himself and Champloo into forces to be reckoned with. Based on these new opportunities and improvements in the craft itself, it seems that the year will be coming to an end on quite a high note for Houston Jr and his ambitious design style.
Today, posting images via Twitter, Houston previewed pieces from the forthcoming Champloo collection, hinting at their release with a subsequent response reading “Next week mane.” Acting as a testament to the high threshold of quality that he has consistently kept for the brand, this collection seems to find itself weaving through intricate designs mixed with bold coloring in a way that illustrates the creative vision for Champloo with a keen eye and delicate touch. Check out the previews below and be sure to tune in for new announcements about this collection hopefully coming soon.
