CPG1963 Board

  • Who’s the Designer:  Creative Director, Rodnell Harris founded streetwear fashion label Chicago Playground in 2008. 
  • What’s the inspiration:  The inspiration behind Chicago Playground is grounded in the belief of filling the void of capturing the “je ne sais qua” of the streets of Chicago.  The clothing’s central focus on collegiate athletics are in tribute to the core values of the brand that center around a homage to Chicago by resonating the principles of success, honor and the throwback traditional values of yesteryear.
  • Why it’s relevant:  Aside from the obvious of the cool kid vibe that Harris channels through his mens and womenswear collections, this brand is all about giving back to the community.  A key pillar of the brand’s principle is to help in spreading positivity, pride and excellence in Chicago’s youth.  Talk about resonating “Chicago je ne sais qua”!
  • Where to wear it:  Everywhere!  Sport, athletics and collegiate are the some of the key trend buzzwords right now and will definitely live into next Spring/Summer 2015.  Snag a piece now online at: www.cpg1963.com
