Chris Brown made an appearance at the launch of his Black Pyramid clothing line at the Pink Dolphin flagship store in Los Angeles. The apparel collection, a collaboration between Brown and Pink+Dolphin founders Neima Khaila and Cena Barhaghi
, is available for purchase at the company’s Fairfax Blvd. store and online.
Brown was on hand to meet fans, sign merchandise, and talk about the limited edition threads, which can be seen in his latest video for “Don’t Judge Me” and on stars including Rihanna.
Brown’s unique design for the brand melds together the logos of both companies to create the image of an upside down black pyramid with pink dolphins rising from the top. The series consists of casual tops and accessories that contrast gray and black retro tones, with splices of color, and turn simple drawings into stenciled iconography.
The idea first struck Brown when he met the Pink + Dolphin crew on the set of his music video “My Last” with Big Sean, and a friendship quickly developed. The singer says he generally pursues business projects based on like-minded camaraderie, thus his choice to embark on the proposal with the designer team was built on a bond.
“A couple years ago, we was like, ‘man, we just trying to get noticed,” the star said, pointing out the growing attention the store has received over the past year. “It’s gonna be beneficial to everybody.”
For Pink + Dolphin, the deal with Brown marks the boutique company’s latest fruitful endeavor in the music world, following the production of designer lines with rappers 2 Chainz and Chief Keef earlier this year. The company opened up its flagship store in L.A. only months ago, and has been actively promoting itself in the online sphere as well.
