Kith is going 90’s with an upcoming collaboration with iconic fashion house Tommy Hilfiger for the 2018 fall and winter season!
We’re going back to the 90’s for a collaboration between Kith and Tonny Hilfiger for the upcoming season!
This collection is mixing pieces from both rare and classic items that we have seen from Hilfiger but with a modern day twist.
Not only will this collection feature apparel and accessories, but it’s being said that they will also be releasing a basketball shoe which will come in two colorways. This is iconic as the Skew basketball sneaker hasn’t been available from the brand since 1996.
Ronnie Fieg who is the owner of Kith sat down with Mr. Hilfiger to talk about how they each got inspiration to start their own brands.
“The dream was to build my own brand,” Hilfiger said.
“So I thought in order to do that I would have to test items, so I made jeans and cool gear of the time with seamstresses and I put those items in my stores and people bought them, loved them, wanted me to make more.”
As for Fieg, his inspiration was similar in creating Kith
“Like you just said, we made a few pieces, just bottoms basically, and after we made a few pairs it was insane how much people wanted the retailer to become a brand,” Fieg said, adding that he and Hilfiger are similar in their approach of a “business person who is also a creative.”
This collaboration is set to launch in two different rounds. The first being this Saturday at all Kith locations. If your not in an area where Kith has a retailer, you can shop online starting at 11 am. as for the second release which features, timberland boots and the Expedition Puffers, that’s not expected until later this year.
