Creep Clothing first launched in 1997 in Osaka, Japan by Kiyofumi Awai. On a limited number occassions, the label’s pieces have made their way to US shelves. In 2008, Kiyofumi’s younger brother, Hiroshi, took the reigns as Creep’s creative director. Hiroshi is taking the line in a new direction by combining innovative Japanese design with his passion for the simple beauty of functional American workwear.
The good folks at Valet have a primer on the label and its creative director. Give it a read here.
