VIBE: Push man, what’s good? My name’s Terrence too.
Pusha T: Haha, dope
We’re here for Play Cloths fifth anniversary party and, not that anyone does anything with failure in mind but, there are other artists who have tried to delve into fashion and it doesn't always work. What about Play Cloths as a brand keeps it, not only relevant but, fresh and exclusive?
Pusha T: Ahh man, you know. I think people know that myself and Play Cloths is sort of an organic situation. They know my background, I come from the streetwear background of A Bathing Ape, BBC, Original Fake. I was embraced by, I have to say, the streetwear gods early in my career. So me doing Play Cloths is not far fetched. I think some people, some artists come out like ‘man, Imma start this clothing line,’ and they’re not really...
They don’t know what they’re doing (laughs)
Pusha T: (laughs) Yeah, they don't know what they’re doing or they’ve never been really checked for for clothes and that type of situation. But just in my coming up in the industry, people have always known me to be affiliated and associated with exclusive pieces or Japanese streetwear and things like that. So, you know, it makes a little bit more sense for me.
There was a clear inspiration from what I want to call like African Excellence and kingship in the most recent pieces.
(Nods in agreement) Yeah.
