“Art and style has always played a significant role in my life — it’s evolved with me throughout my career,” said Brown.

However, Taylor Hendrich, director of Wilhelmina Men, said, “Chris Brown is a…multifaceted artist with a unique take on style, and we are excited to translate and extend his brand.”
