Kith Reveals Military-Inspired “Kith Ops” Collection
Today, popular New York City retailer KITH has released their upcoming assortment for winter comprised of original KITH apparel silhouettes in addition to collaborative Nishikawa outerwear and Ronnie Fieg footwear releasing this November.
The collection is inspired by vintage 1940’s military garments retrieved from Japan by KITH founder Ronnie Fieg. The 60-year-old battle-tested artifacts influenced the overarching material execution and color palette for the collection. Each silhouette was designed using a connective thread of stitches, patterns, and hardware to create a cohesive appearance. Tops and bottoms are crafted from either heavily washed cotton ripstop or chemical washed terry to deliver a very unique look and feel.
This seasonal offering boasts four Ronnie Fieg footwear collaborations: two Filling Pieces and two Fracap’s. Fieg debuts an all-new silhouette with Filling Pieces – the RF-Mid II – an update to his previous RF-Mid. The RF-Mid II is offered in both wheat and black colorways, composed of premium nubuck, shearling lining, and features a never-before-seen “Space” sole unit.
The KITH Ops collection is available on Friday, Nov. 13, 2015 at 11AM EST at Kith Manhattan, Kith Brooklyn, and KithNYC.com.
