Coinciding with the opening of Kith’s first Los Angeles flagship store is the release of Kith and Nike’s Long Live the King, Chapter 2 with LeBron James. This 16-piece collection features apparel and accessories in addition to four versions of the LeBron XV.
Chapter 2 maintains a regal theme throughout, as a pattern inspired by kings’ cloaks is applied across the range using an extremely high quality embroidery. The apparel includes four hoodies and four basketball shorts, all of which tie back to the colorways of the LeBron XV’s. The hoodies feature Kith logos on the center chest, king’s cloak pattern on the left sleeve, Long Live the King on the right sleeve, and a minimal Kith x Nike LeBron logo on the back neck. The basketball shorts have a retro-inspired fit and are crafted using heavyweight double-mesh and thick rib for the waistband. The right side of the shorts feature a long Riri zipper reminiscent of the one seen on the Performance XV’s, and conceal a hidden pocket, in addition to the two front hand-pockets and back right wallet pocket. Lastly, king’s cloak embroidery is located on the front and back of the legs. Rounding out the collection are four Kith x Nike basketballs.
The lookbook for this collection was shot inside of the Kith Los Angeles flagship store while still in its construction phase as this collection will christen its opening.
