For the past few years KITH has been quietly building a cult following and with its growing success is now looking to expand unto the world’s most prestigious shopping district, Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue. With already upscale locations in Soho and Brooklyn, expect this new location to be doing it Christopher Wallace Big.
According to Freshnessmag.com:
The new retail venture, designed in partnership with architectural agency Snarkitecture, will feature Kith originals as well as a special Kith x Bergdorf Goodman capsule. Signature design elements include a housed casing of completely casted Air Jordan IVs — something that’s become a recurring Kith motif — along with herringbone marble walls and a custom Carrera marble bench. As for the capsule collection, customers can expect six limited-edition co-branded styles, including a tee, tracksuit, wool cap and Williams Hoodie and Crewneck.
With these kind of duds you can expect to drop a Shaq sized kung-fu grip on any number of pieces that’s deemed worthy. On the bright side at least their isn’t a madman roaming the streets and sonning dudes for wearing Kith.
Last night, KITH held its first runway show. The Samsung 837 flagship in NYC was transformed into KITHLAND and featured performances from Ma$e, The Lox and Fabulous as well as A$AP Rocky, Ja Rule and more.
