Anyone who has a child knows how much joy and contentment he or she can bring, but sometimes its easy to forget how much inspiration a little one can provide as well.
Just ask Wiz Khalifa, who’s three-year-old son Sebastian led him to design a clothing line with the California retailer Junk Food called BASH by Junk Food Clothing. In fact, all of the pieces were based on the toddler’s very favorite things.
“All the designs are based around Sebastian, all of his hobbies and the things that he’s into,” said Wiz in an interview with People magazine. “I just really wanted it to feel personal to him, so when he sees it, he gets excited.”
“He’s three years old, so he might not understand the concept of having his own clothing line, but the fact that all of his favorite things are all over his clothes, it makes him feel special — it makes him entertained by what he’s wearing,” added the rapper.
Reportedly, the line will consist of shirts, sweatshirts, bomber jackets and accessories and prices will range from $35 to $50 for kids’ items and $45 to $80 for men’s.
In addition, one bomber jacket will go for $150 and the other for $250, and the ideas for each design came from Wiz and Sebastian’s shopping trips. For now, it’s not clear if the 3-year-old’s mom Amber Rose had anything to do with the line.
“I shop with him a lot, and we match often,” said Wiz. “He’s definitely got my sense of style. Everybody tell me how fresh he usually looks from store-bought stuff, so we’re making his own stuff now.”
As for Wiz’s own style, he said it hasn’t changed much since his younger years, it’s just matured some.
“I always liked to dress fun and comfortable and if anything, it’s grown up with me,” explained Wiz. “It’s just gotten more mature as I’ve gotten older. I like to be able to quick grab something and go. Something I’ve learned, having a son, is to be able to get dressed and be happy with your outfit and do it fast.”
BASH by Junk Food will be available for purchase on Oct. 15 at Junk Food’s retail store in Venice, Calif., and it can also be purchased on the company’s website.
