Kith partners with iconic American brand Tommy Hilfiger to launch a Fall/Winter 2018 collection fueled by nostalgia. Kith digs into the Hilfiger archives to redesign some of the brand’s most classic and rarest pieces from the 1990’s through a modern lens. The assortment spans over 50 styles and includes apparel, footwear, and accessories.
The majority of the collection is rooted in two overarching color stories, one of which is a co-branded play on the original Tommy design and the other being a new spin by Kith. The apparel ranges various categories, including fall/winter outerwear, denim, prep, and basics. Although the silhouettes retain their original patterns, each style was created with custom-milled fabrics to elevate them from their OG predecessors. The footwear includes two colorways of the Hilfiger Athletics Skew Basketball Sneaker, which hasn’t been released since 1996. The Skew has been completely upgraded with premium nubuck and full-grain leather uppers with supple leather lining, as well as asymmetrical co-branding. The boots are a three-way collaboration with Timberland, as the 6” Construct and 40 Below Super Boot are reimagined through the Kith x Tommy color palette.
Kith x Tommy Hilfiger FW18 will release in two deliveries. Delivery 1 releases this Saturday at all Kith shops and at 11AM EST on Kith.com. Delivery 2, which is comprised of the two Expedition Puffer Jackets and the Timberland boots, will release later this year.
