While her relationship with singer Chris Brown has been on the tip of everyone’s tongue for the past several months, Karrueche Tran has managed to maintain a steely air of mystery. With a new clothing line “The Kill” currently in the works, the stylist turned designer sat for an exclusive interview with VIBE where she discussed her inspiration for the brand, and maintaining a business relationship with her ex-boyfriend.
In the sit down, Tran revealed Chris Brown initially wanted to create a female version of his men’s line Black Pyramid. He then asked her to take over “The Kill”, which went from being a women’s only line, to unisex. As for the origin of the name, she explained it came from a day at home listening to La Roux’s “In For The Kill”, and it has since stuck with her.
As for whether or not Brown has issued advice on starting “The Kill”, she said he trusts her and so far loves her designs. When the interviewer asked if it’s difficult to work with him with all personal things considered, she replied, “At the end of the day, he will always be a friend. We’ll always care about each other. We won’t allow that to interfere. Our business is business.”
