Ronnie Fieg and KITH have taken to Instagram to announce a collaboration with the estate of iconic Brooklyn rapper The Notorious B.I.G. Made up of tees, hoodies and crewnecks emblazoned with KITH graphics and famous Biggie motifs/photos, the capsule aims to salute the late, great wordsmith’s legacy.

RIP Big. March 9th.

The baby from the cover of B.I.G’s seminal 1994 album Ready To Die appears sitting on top of KITH’s bog logo in one graphic for a look that’s slightly reminiscent of Supreme’s memorable FW11 Biggie T-shirt. An extra still from 1997’s Life After Death cover shoot and the image of Biggie with his hand outstretched that graces the cover of 1999’s posthumous Born Again are present as well. The offerings are finalized by a simple KITH box logo tee that features a hand-scrawled signature slapped over its top left corner.

KITH’s The Notorious B.I.G. collection will release on March 9 — the 23rd anniversary of Biggie’s passing — via the KITH webstore. Retail prices for each piece have yet to be announced.

KITH isn’t the only New York-based brand making noise: Aimé Leon Dore recently relaunched its Uniform Program as part of its SS20 collection.
