Remember those 2 cute long blond haired babes from your Saturday Morning Cartoons back in 1991? Well here is a little blog on them…
Chip and Pepper Foster are identical twins from Canada. Pepper is older than Chip by a whopping fifty-five seconds! The story of how Chip and Pepper became well-known has many layers…of clothing that is! They started out in the 1980’s selling t-shirts out of the back of their truck for fun and it just grew and grew…So they started their own clothing business and named it Chip and Pepper Wetwear. It’s huge success caught the attention of a producer at NBC who became interested in working with these funny, talented, and way-off-the-wall brothers!
Before landing on American TV Stations they were featured on Canadian TV singing “Chip and Pepper: get hip or get out!” NBC TV saw the footage and gave Chip and Pepper a Saturday Morning Variety Show called Chip and Pepper’s Surf’s Up Saturday. The show included comedy sketches by the “def duo” and “peppered” with special guest stars such as Will Smith of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Sadly, the show only lasted one season.
In 1994, the Fosters opened a store by the name of Golf Punk. As it grew, the Fosters decided to resurrect their signature brand, which took place in fall of 2003 in Los Angeles. Chip & Pepper is sold through select department and specialty stores in more than 42 countries.
The duo gained notoriety as stylists on the Style Network show The Look For Less and numerous appearances on E!, including Glamour’s 50 Biggest Fashion Dos & Don’ts and served as fashion correspondents for Extra.
In 2007, Chip and Pepper announced the launch of C7P, A Chip & Pepper Production with department store giant JC Penney. The line is aimed particularly at the teen market. C7P and Foster Jeans are high quality denim and design drew all types of shoppers to JC Penney, and attracted major designers to create collections for JC Penney.
In June 2011 The Chip & Pepper Wet Wear and S3 launch party was held at Toronto’s Distillery District’s Airship 37. Chip and Pepper were on hand as well as Chip’s wife Nicole and supports of the new line. The Wet Wear line can be found in Sportchek’s and S3 stores across Canada!
Being young and free, doing what you love to do and enjoying life is the essence of C&P Wet Wear! Way to go guys…
