Kith partners with Los Angeles-based designer Greg Lauren to create a one-of-a-kind collection titled "Ivy league Draft". When sitting down to work on a collaborative collection, Ronnie Fieg and Greg Lauren created a concept that accurately channels Kith's aesthetic through Greg's disruptive artisanal perception of fashion. The result was the dystopian imagination of ivy league students drafted to war. This theme sees Kith's Americana influence on product to be destroyed and reconstructed by Greg in a cohesive way.
Staple silhouettes from Kith's catalogue are reconstructed with a variety of vintage materials including military fabric, Carhartt canvas, denim, waffle thermal, and cableknit wool. The collection features 26 different styles all of which are handcrafted with the most pinnacle attention to detail. Unique distressing and paint splatter is applied to each garment making them all slightly different. Each piece is extremely limited, with only 3 units produced per style.
The Kith x Greg Lauren "Ivy League Draft" Collection releases in-store this Friday at Kith Manhattan and Kith Los Angeles. The Kith.com release follows the next day on Saturday at 11AM EST.
