Kith x Dover Street Market Is, Well, Achromatic
Some of the hottest names in the NYC fashion scene right now, Ronnie Fieg and Dover Street Market, have teamed up for a collection which stays in line with Ronnie's aesthetic while still being cool and dark enough for DSM. The collection is very Kith, Ronnie's fingerprints are all over this thing like a hot chick at a Miami Heat game, but we believe a collaboration of this level helps legitimize RF's aesthetic to higher fashion-centric demographic: asshole fashion snobs.
Now, it's pretty obvious that Ronnie didn't create this collection — or any of his collections — to try to sew his way into inner fashion circles, but it can't hurt if the collection receives a good reception by those circles. He has carved out his own lane and continues to produce garments the public wants, and this "Achromatic" collection is a good example of how he appeases the masses while still making the designs his own. From the Kith website:
The "Achromatic" Collection stands for the epitome of quality in design. Extraneous color has been negated to emphasize the premium composition of each piece. By partnering with world-renowned retailer Dover Street Market, KITH has been able to display its obsession with quality to a wider international demographic. This preemptive Autumn collection contains two outerwear garments - the short sleeve pullover Hester Hoody and the newly-introduced asymmetrical Rutgers Crew. The Great Jones Sweatpant is featured in two monochromatic makeups, while the dual-layer Sullivan Short bridges the seasonal chasm. In addition, two KITH x Stance socks fit cohesively into the line as essential accessories. The keystone of the collection is a set of exquisite trainers, as Ronnie Fieg reimagines the Puma XT-2 silhouette for the first time.
You can grab the collection at the Kith Pop-Up Shop at 66 Bleecker St., Kith Brooklyn at 233 Flatbush Ave., online at the Kith web store, and Dover Street Market's flagship London store, on Saturday, July 26.
Life seems to be coming up all 100s (emoji icon) for Fieg lately and we're continuously impressed by what he's been putting out. Let's see if he can keep his reign on top going.
