Rooted in 1996 New York City nostalgia, the second coming of our "New York Natives" Collection features a curated selection of goods tinged with vintage flavor. Each piece was designed under the concept of what KITH might make if it existed in 1996.
Tops included in the collection are the Washington Hoody, revamped from its prior version, and the all new Lafayette Hoody. The Washington Hoody ($125 USD) is available in two colors - Navy/Grey and Black/Red - features the same silhouette, but as opposed to last year's use of fleece, it was redesigned using a 320 gsm cotton French terry. The body is extended and paneled, and features a split hem with a longer rear. The middle of the body is contrast colorblocked, and is emblazoned with "New York Natives" text on the front. A striped "1996" is applied to the back, while Natives Logo is seen embroidered on the left arm. The Lafayette Hoody ($135 USD) arrives in two colorways as well - Black/Burgundy and Navy/Grey - and is constructed using a 320 gsm cotton French terry. The body is paneled using lightweight nylon overlays with various prints. The front kangaroo pocket features "1996," while the chest features a subtle tonal KITH logo.
The sole bottom in the collection is our Jackson Pant ($125), which is made in two colorways - Black/Red and Navy/Grey. This pant is fabricated using a heavyweight 380 gsm cotton French terry with lightweight poly overlays which are trimmed with nylon webbing. The right leg is bannered with "1996" while the right includes a hit of "Natives" text. The cuffs are elasticated and feature zipper vents.
Three hats were made for the collection - the JUST Hat ($45 USD), the 1996 KITH Hat ($45 USD), and the Natives Hat ($45 USD). The JUST Hat is a 6 panel hat which displays one letter per each four panels, and is available in Black and Navy. The 1996 KITH Hat displays the year we were inspired by, as well as our brand name across the front, and is available in Navy. Lastly, the Natives Hat is made in Black, and banners "Natives" across the front.
The centerpiece of the collection is Ronnie Fieg's latest collaboration with PONY - the Ronnie Fieg x PONY M-110 ($220 USD). The upper is crafted from a premium red Italian leather, and features a white calfskin leather liner. Snakeskin-deboss hits are used amidst the quarter and heel panels. Each pair is accompanied by custom wooden shoe trees and shoe horn, custom calfskin leather dustbag, and two additional lace options.
The KITH "New York Natives" Collection will be available tomorrow, December 20th, at 11AM EST at the New KITH Shop 644 Broadway, KITH Brooklyn 233 Flatbush Ave, online at KithNYC.com and the KITH App.
