CPS Chaps join with hip-hop hero Wiz Khalifa for a limited-edition capsule collection



Get the head-to-toe look of American rapper and songwriter Wiz Khalifa at CPS Chaps this season as the brand proudly presents its latest collaboration “Wiz Khalifa x CPS”.

Billed as a perfect match between attitude and style, the collection was recently launched on a cool runway at CentralWorld to the sounds of a live hip-hop concert.

The inspiration of this collection comes from Wiz Khalifa, aka Cameron Jibril Thomaz, with the outfits reflecting his identity, character and lifestyle. His uniqueness is known as “Grunge” and he presents his raw personality in a modern fashion interpretation. Khalifa also opts for his favourite colour combo of orange and black as the main colours for the collection.

As one of hip-hop's most fashionable influencers, he is renowned for wearing an endless parade of funky patterned tees, skinny jeans, shirts with outstanding printed graphics, strange shaped glasses and eye-catching sneakers. 

His attitude towards fashion is that clothes are part of your expression and that you can have a different look everyday, depending on your mood.

Making sure you will have an unmistakable look, the “Wiz Khalifa x CPS” collection includes t-shirts, shirts, both plain and printed, jackets, blazers and bombers that pair well with skinny trousers in denim and in black and white. Accessories consist of chunky sneakers, caps and waist-bags in orange and black. The highlighted items include graphic prints and patches on shirts and jackets and CPS CHAPS adds zest by applying its signature jeans bleaching technique to this latest skinny jeans collection. The collection is decorated with a pick logo, which doubles as its symbol. 

Lifestyle goods include caps and waist bags, must-have items for this season. And you don’t have to be male to wear the threads as some pieces are unisex. Women can mix and match the denim and leather jacket, caps, waist-bag and chunky sneakers. 

The Chunky Sneakers have been selling quickly since the launch and bring back happy memories of the sneaker model so popular during the 70s-80s that were inspired by the popular “Punk” boots model. The 2018 version has a pattern inspired by heat waves and hip-hop beats, an extra thick sole and different colours on top, and boast suede, leather and mesh. 

All items from Wiz Khalifa x CPS are limited-edition so buy now while stocks last.
