Kith and Colette’s mutual respect runs deep, as both are not only regarded as flagship retailers for their respective fashion capitals, but also as centers of cultural diffusion. After creating a preeminent category of contemporary street style and fashion, Colette established itself as a top-tier concept store in Paris. Kith shares this passion for innovation, and has continued to deliver unprecedented consumer journeys through their progressive retail spaces and pinnacle product offering. This summer, Kith collaborates with Colette. The full product assortment includes original co-branded apparel, accessories with Beats by Dre and Stance, and two new Puma styles designed with Ronnie Fieg. The apparel includes updated renditions of staple Kith designs, such as the all-new Madison II Jacket, new exclusive colors of our staple Williams Hoody, a Colette-blue Kith classic logo tee, a Colette Water Bar logo tee, and an undershirt 3-pack comprised of white, grey, and Colette-blue. Lastly, the duo offers a wide range of accessories, including a Mini Logo Hat, boxer briefs, and collaborative Stance Fusion Performance socks. Beats by Dre also play a key role in this collection, partnering with both Kith and Colette to redesign the Pill+ portable speaker and Powerbeats 2 wireless earphones. The keystone of this collection is a duo of original sneaker silhouettes designed by Ronnie Fieg in collaboration with Puma and Colette. The Blaze of Glory and the Disc Blaze both receive alterations by Fieg, as the Blaze of Glory receives an added forefoot strap while the Disc Blaze’s original vamp has been restructured. Both models are executed with premium materials such as nubuck, perforated leather, and pigskin suede. Other details include custom-printed insoles and custom packaging. Bridging the international gap between these two retail meccas, the immersive experience not only includes product, but also a culinary element. The Kith Treats cereal bar travels to Paris to exist inside the Colette Water Bar for a limited time, which will include custom cereal boxes and two exclusive cereal specials. The Kith x Colette Collection will release throughout next week, starting with the Beats by Dre Pill+ and Powerbeats 2 dropping June 13th in-store at Colette and June 14th at Kith stores and KithNYC.com. The Ronnie Fieg x Colette x Puma RF-Blaze of Glory and Disc Blaze release in-store at Colette on June 15th and at Kith stores and KithNYC.com on June 16th. Lastly, the Kith x Colette apparel and accessories will launch Friday June 17th in-store at Colette then at Kith stores and KithNYC.com on Saturday June 18th.
