CHICAGO PLAYGROUND is a cultural lifestyle brand of the Arts, specializing in the iconic style of varsity jackets. Based on the pillars of Unity, Passion and Excellence, the Chicago Playground's mission seeks to inspire feelings of appreciation, honor and value, with an ethical vision of work through the arts of sport, music and African culture, to create an aesthetic 'conversation piece'.
Founded in 2008 by fashion artist, Rodnell ‘KID’ Harris, of Chicago, the brand originated its name from the metaphoric aspect in seeing the city of Chicago as a playground within itself. To him, it seemed to be a city where many talents originated.
Looking back to our younger days, of how we explored our talents on the playground, we see now as adults, the importance in continuing to cultivate those same talents...the difference being, how we apply them to our everyday lives...
