Just when we were thinking this chick didn’t have a voice or a brain, stylist and model Karreuche Tran did a recent interview with Vibe Magazine about her clothing line and working with her ex-on-again-off-again boyfriend Chris Brown now that he is back with Rihanna (for today).
Check out some excerpts below.
VIBE: How did you come up with the concepts for your clothing line?
Chris [Brown] wanted to do a female line for his men’s line [“Black Pyramid”]. So he asked me to take over and “The Kill” was gonna be a women’s only line but it’s actually unisex.
How long have you two been planning this?
It’s been a few months. When I first started, I pretty much thought of the name. Then from there, we started making very basic sample t-shirts, hats, beanies and socks. That’s what a lot of people saw online and on Instagram. They saw certain people wearing it, so it created this really big buzz in our very first stages. We got a little bit ahead of ourselves and we wanted to do this really awesome launch on 12/12/12, but we kinda had to slow it down ‘cause things weren’t 100% completely done. That’s why we waited.
How is the name “The Kill” representative of your life?
I was at home one day and this song “In For The Kill” by La Roux was stuck in my head, so “The Kill” stuck out to me.(Photo Credit: Karreuche’s instagram)
How do you feel about it? Are you happy with your love life at the current moment?
I mean at the time, but right now of course not. It’s a lot going on but it could be a lot worse. And that’s how I look at life. I take it for what it is. I move forward, grow from it and at this point, that’s what I’m doing. I’m not gonna sit and dwell and become consumed in that negativity because I could very much be that person, especially when things are so public and so thrown in my face. But like I said, things can be much worse. So I’m good.
Regardless whether Chris and Karreuche get back together, this is some damn good publicity for Karreuche who seems to be rather low key. Not only does it promote her as a brand, but also her clothing line that she will profit from.
Plus, she ain’t no bad looking broad either. So to all who seek, Karreuche has confirmed that she is back on the market…well at least for now if you wanna kick it on the low-low.
