Gutter™

Made by Casper Wright in 2015 as his newest foray into fashion. A native of Cleveland, Wright began making clothing in high school and his first brand, Art for Thought, was born out of his struggle to provide food for himself. Shortly before moving to Chicago in 2016, he debuted his newest label, which initially experienced success with its 'Hot Water hoodie' that references the designer’s difficulties paying his hot water bill. Wright draws inspiration from renowned designers such as Jun Takahashi and Raf Simons while creating designs that reflect his and his friends’ lifestyles. Handmade in Chicago.
