Let’s be honest, Karrueche Tran is better known for her love triangle with Chris Brown and Rihanna than her fashion sense. However, that’s not keeping her from attempting to launch her own fashion line, “The Kill“. The line was supposed to make a triumphant launch on 12/12/12 but unfortunately Karrueche had to postpone the launch for a later [undisclosed] date. In a rare interview, Karrueche chats with Vibe about her clothing line and her working and personal relationship with Chris Brown.
Check out excerpts from Karrueche Tran’s interview with Vibe Magazine.
VIBE: How did you come up with the concepts for your clothing line?
Karrueche Tran: 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” representati
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.
How hard is it to work with Chris with everything that’s going on?
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.
Do you think you’ve found the person you could spend the rest of your life with?
I do care about him and I do love him. Family is very important to me, and I’ve always put it in my mind to remember that. For me, I’d love to meet somebody and grow and build a foundation, but I don’t want to even think about marriage right now. I can’t even get a clothing line out. (laughs)
Do you think there’s ever gonna come a point where it’s just gonna be too hard to maintain a friendship with him?
I don’t know. I’m not sure. I’ve been on a rollercoaste
If you could sit down with Chris and Rihanna in the same room, what would you want to get off your chest?
For everybody, emotionally, that would just be way too much. I’m a very mature person so if the time ever did come where we would need to sit down and talk, I’d do it. I’m a mature person. I can work it out but that would be a lot. (Pause) Yeah, it would be a lot.
