Kith joins luxury Japanese brand nonnative to launch a collection designed for the winter season this Black Friday. The partnership stems from mutual admiration, as well as an unwavering penchant for premium quality. The process was very collaborative, as nonnative’s expertise in the realm of work and military wear were channeled through Kith’s unique lens to redefine fits and fabric executions.
A Japanese influence is prevalent throughout the assortment. Outerwear includes the Trooper Boa Shearling Parka which is offered in twill camo and washed denim variations, as well as the Stroller Pullover which is an extended quarter-zip silhouette crafted from black denim and khaki plaid flannel. The Explorer Zip Shirt is a utility top crafted from woven shirting fabric and features an elongated body. A lush high-pile fleece is used on the Trooper Pullover and Explorer Hoodie for optimal warmth, while the Trainer Hoodie and Sweatpant use a more classic heavyweight cotton fleece. Other bottoms include the Farmer Patchwork Denim and the cargo pocket Trooper Trouser.
For footwear, Kith and nonnative worked with adidas Consortium on two models that fit seamlessly with the collection – the UltraBOOST Mid and the Twinstrike ADV. The first model is Kith’s second rendition of the Ronnie Fieg-helmed UltraBOOST Mid silhouette, and features a heavy-gauge wool-blend 3M patchwork Primeknit upper. The Twinstrike is a more retro-styled silhouette executed in tonal premium cream nubuck.
The Kith x nonnative Collection releases on Black Friday at all Kith shops and at midnight 12AM EST on Kith.com. It will also be stocked at United Arrows Sapporo and Nagoya, United Arrows & Sons and their online store, as well as Coverchord.com.
