Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

CREEP was founded in Osaka, Japan by Kiyofumi Awai in 1997. In 2008, Kiyofumi’s junior sibling Hiroshi, based in Toronto Canada, joined CREEP as men’s creative director and launched an exclusive men’s line, CREEP by Hiroshi Awai. Since then, Hiroshi’s CREEP has sold its cutting-edge designs in dozens of stores worldwide. Hiroshi is taking the line in a new direction by combining innovative Japanese design with his passion for the simple beauty of functional American work wear.
