Unraveling the typical streetwear-aesthetic, KITH sets to release a project fully devoid of color, appropriately titled the "Achromatic" Collection. Partnering with iconic international retailer Dover Street Market, KITH has created a collection synonymous with quality and uniqueness. Subtle juxtapositions of black and white allow the premium construction of each piece to be the sole focal point.
Two tops are included in the collection - the Hester Hoody ($130 USD) and the Rutgers Crew ($140 USD). The Hester Hoody is available in one colorway - Black/White - and is composed of 380 gsm French terry with a rear tech-poly overlay. Details include a tonal KITH Classic Logo on the rear, left sleeve 3M trimming, adjustable drawstring hood, and an adjustable drawcord waistband with chrome toggle. The dual-panel Rutgers Crew is available in two colorways - Black/Black and Black/White - and features a 380 gsm French terry upper, and contrasting tech-poly lower and forearm panels. Details consist of an asymmetrical left zipper vent, elastic sleeve cuffs and waistband, and minimal 3M KITH Classic Logo located on the left chest.
The Great Jones Sweatpant ($150 USD) and the Sullivan Short ($115 USD) comprise the bottoms of the line. The Great Jones Sweatpant is available in two monochromatic makeups - Black and White - and consist of a tech cotton-poly blend outer short with panel-seam detailing, functional 2-button fly, elastic drawstring waistband, side-welt metal zipper pockets, as well as 3M trimming and horizontal 3M KITH Classic Logo on the left leg. The 380 gsm French terry pant component uses a very tailored fit with metal zipper ankle cuffs. The Sullivan Short is available exclusively in one color - Black. The tech-poly outer short features an invisible right rear zipper, taped seams, elastic drawstring waistband, and elongated 3M KITH Classic Logo on the rear left leg panel. The inner short is made of a 380 gsm compression-cotton rib material providing unparalleled comfort.
Accessories include KITH x Stance Crew ($15 USD) and Invisible ($10 USD) socks, in addition to the KITH Velour Towel ($55 USD). The KITH x Stance Crew receives a vertical 3M KITH Classic Logo on the calves, white blocking on the toe and heel, and "Just Us" branding hits in white located on the bottom of the foot. The Invisible uses an inverse color-scheme, with a horizontal 3M KITH Classic Logo on the forefoot, black toe and heel blocking, and black "Just Us" branding hits on the bottom of the foot. The KITH Velour Towel arrives in two versions - Black/Shadow and White/Cool Grey - and uses a heavyweight design that permits transgression between beach and bath. This plush towel is composed of double-sheared 100% cotton terry velour with patterned dobby end hems and the KITH Classic Logo emblazoned across the front.
Finally, two colorways of the Ronnie Fieg x Puma XT-2 - "Achromatic" ($180 USD) solidify this minimalist collection, available in - Black and White. The XT-2 is a vintage Puma Trinomic silhouette that receives an exquisitely premium upper composed of grainy high-grade Italian glove leather. To effectively portray the intricate attention to detail utilized in this project, typical TPU components have been replaced with thick leather counterparts, thus adding an unforeseen level of depth to this '90s trainer. Supple pig leather lines the sneaker creating a luxurious feel, while quilted detailing on the inside of the tongue provides another dimension to this opulent model. Comes with custom packaging, as well as custom leather dust bag and lace bag.
