Following the reveal of KITH’s Fall/Winter 2019 lookbook, the New York-based brand hit the runway during New York Fashion Week to showcase its collaboration-studded KITH AIR collection. Special items include Disney-heavy outerwear and bespoke ASICS sneakers, to name only a few, with a handful of surprises seen in our exclusive backstage look.

An expansive array of collaborative items accompany KITH‘s subversive street-ready garments, which include cargo vests, corduroy trucker jackets, box logo tees and washed-out jeans. More conventional gear comes by way of co-branded RHUDE paisley shirts, hairy suede ASICS, chunky New Balances and weather resistant adidas Terrex layering pieces, like high-vis hats, parkas and beanies.

Some of the more off-kilter items were a wide array of Vogue-branded goods, like box logo tees, varsity jackets and sweatpants, accompanied by a huge spread of Disney goods, heavy on the Mickey Mouse imagery; the mascot appeared on denim jackets, collaborative Converse sneakers and corduroy caps. Elsewhere, Bergdorf Goodman branding co-mingled with floral basketball shorts and high-top RHUDE sneakers were styled with slubby socks, with a rich color palette and plush textiles reinforcing the collection’s effortless cool.

Recently, YouTube announced plans to broadcast behind-the-scenes shots from events like New York Fashion Week.

Day 9 (yesterday). This is the fourth year we’re showing during NYFW and every year exactly on this day I ask myself if I can ever do it again. The amount of energy and time it takes to do it right is honestly too much. Everything hurts and the team hasn’t slept in two weeks. But when thinking of what this show does for the work we put into this product makes it worth it in the end. The normal show is worked on for 8-10 weeks. Kith Air has been worked on since the day after last year’s show. Thank you to my entire team for putting in the work and helping me bring these crazy dreams to life. And thank you to my beautiful and caring wife who puts up with my bullshit during these crazy times. And most of all, thank you to all of you for following the journey and trusting the vision. Tonight will be special.
