Wiz Khalifa Partners with Spencer's to Create Exclusive Line, Yung Khalifa
NEW YORK, NY (SEPTEMBER 24, 2013) — Multi-platinum selling, award-winning artist, Wiz Khalifa has partnered with Spencer’s to develop an exclusive line of apparel and accessories, Yung Khalifa, launching this summer at select Spencer’s stores and on spencers.com.
“I’m really excited about it. It’s very edgy and creative. I think the people will love it.”—Wiz Khalifa
Yung Khalifa was inspired by Wiz’s fashion and lifestyle. Wiz created this brand and worked collaboratively with Spencer’s to develop the Yung Khalifa line. The apparel and accessories are inspired by imagery from Wiz’s tattoos and verbiage used by Wiz.
“We’re appreciative of the terrific partnership between Wiz’s team and ours,” says Steven Silverstein, President and CEO of Spencer’s. “The relationship between his art and music to our targeted customer is unparalleled, and the creativity that has gone into the production of this line is great.”
As Wiz Khalifa prepares his next full-length album for later this year via Rostrum Records/Atlantic Records, he is excited to have his own lifestyle apparel and accessory line in Spencer’s.
“The Yung Khalifa collection brings Wiz’s creativity to life. He designed each piece on what he wanted his apparel to look like and what he wanted to wear.” stated Sara Nemerov, SVP and Head of Global Consumer Products and Brand Licensing at Warner Music Group.
