Since founding KITH in 2011, Queens native Ronnie Fieg has continued to push the envelope of what’s possible in retail and collaborations. 2019 was no different. With KITH outposts in New York, Los Angeles, Miami and London (a dedicated space at Selfridges) humming, Fieg’s brand made what may have been its boldest move yet: announcing a store in Paris, the first stand-alone KITH location in Europe. Of course, it was business as usual on the collaborative front too. Fieg helmed a collaboration with Def Jam to celebrate the legendary record company’s 35th anniversary, revisited his classic ASICS GEL-LYTE III “Super Blue” to create a hybrid GEL-LYTE 3.1 “Super Blue,” and introduced a full KITH x Malin + Goetz unisex skincare range among other projects. As the calendar turns on the ‘10s, it’s undeniably exciting to see what Fieg and KITH will do over the course of the next decade.
