Over at Sony Hall, Chicago Playground strutted their stuff during StyleX Fashion Week.
Chicago Playground is a brand that has received national recognition this past year. It’s a city favorite in Chicago created by Rodnell “Kid” Harris. The brand sells custom designed varsity jackets and cardigans.
The jackets are crafted by a cut and sew technique. Many celebrities have been seen sporting his jackets like Lil Durk, Fred VanVleet, 600 Breezy, Tarhonda Jones, H.E.R, and Dej Loaf.
But one of his popular designs, which pays homage to the 1990’s TV show ‘Martin’ brought the brand televised attention when it debuted on the 2018 soul train awards. The jackets were worn by Martin’s very own Pam and Gina aka Tichina Arnold and Tisha Campbell.
This brand is one to watch for because of its uniqueness, authenticity, and consistent nod to African American culture.
Chicago Playground is certainly one to shop with because each piece and design is crafted with “the culture” in mind.
