Kith partners with luxury Japanese label Mastermind World to create a premium cobranded apparel and footwear collection.
This elevated 28-style assortment channels Mastermind's distinguished aesthetic through Kith's signature lens. This convergence results in completely reimagined staple Kith silhouettes, such as the Rugby Shirt which features an oversized fit with logos executed in Swarovski crystal, while also introducing new disruptive designs such as the Cargo Crewneck and the oversized and distressed Knit Hoodie. Both brand's penchant for superior quality is seen throughout, evidenced by the Italian sheepskin Hilldale Parka and leather Flight Bomber. The apparel exhibits a dual color story with half the collection executed in black and the other half in ivory. Each garment also features a Kith x Mastermind World tassel decorated in gold hardware.
The footwear element of this collection sees Kith's first-ever collaboration with Vans, as the brand adds to the coveted lineage of Mastermind's partnership with Vans. These tri-branded models include two Sk8-Hi Zip LX, an Old Skool LX, and an OG Classic Slip-On. The Sk8-Hi Zip LX in black features a canvas and nubuck upper with silver hardware, while the brown model is crafted from leather with lux sherpa lining and gold hardware. This brown makeup is also applied to the Old Skool LX, while the OG Classic Slip-On is coated in a black Kith monogram pattern. All four models also have the collection's phrase "Peace on Earth / World on Fire" debossed into the soles. Kith x Mastermind World releases January 18th at all Kith shops and at 11AM EST on Kith.com.
