Wiz Khalifa releasing clothing line inspired by son


Rapper Wiz Khalifa has teamed up with Los Angeles based retailer Junk Food Clothing on an exclusive father-son capsule collection.

The 29-year-old We Dem Boyz hitmaker reveals his three-year-old son Sebastian, from his marriage to Amber Rose, inspired every piece crafted for the line, titled BASH by Junk Food, a name derived from the little boy's nickname.

"All the designs are based around Sebastian - all of his hobbies and the things that he’s into," the hip hop star explains to 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 favourite things are all over his clothes, it makes him feel special; it makes him entertained by what he’s wearing.”

“My favourite piece was probably the pumpkin sock because he loves pumpkins so much,” Wiz adds. “He’s really into Halloween and spooky things, and the fact that we were able to pull off a pumpkin design was really cool.”

Customers will be able to purchase sweatshirts, bomber jackets, shirts and accessories of the same design from the line in both kids and menswear sizes, with prices ranging from $35 to $80 per item, save for the bomber jackets, which will sell for $150  in the kids section and $250 for adults.
