On the heels of KITH’s Nike Air Force 1 “NYC” collaboration is a new partnership with perennial American sportswear label, Russell Athletic. The duo’s expansive assemblage for the colder months features a gi, hoodies, crewnecks and shorts. All items were upcycled from vintage pieces and feature patchwork details in a neutral and earthy color palette.
“This marriage of Kith’s patterns and Russell Athletic’s vintage archive serves as the perfect embodiment of this partnership. A specific color palette is exhibited through these styles, as the vintage pieces were sourced according to a specific color range inspired by Kith’s and Russell’s signature tones. Lastly, an embroidered Kith for Russell patch is seen across every style as a final stamp of approval,” as per a statement.
Accompanying the four styles mentioned is a capsule of Russell Athletic vintage tees curated by KITH. Totaling nearly 160 pieces, all of the garments were made from apparel that date back from 1970-99. All of the tees are embellished with a KITH logo printed across the chest portions. This vintage selection will not be sold online due to its one-of-one nature, but will be available exclusively in KITH’s US and Japan flagship stores and select shops. Sizes offered include XS/S, M/L and XL/XXL depending on the piece.
The KITH for Russell Athletic “One of One” collection is slated to release on October 5 at all KITH stores. View the collaboration in the slideshow above and then visit KITH’s website for more information.
