Paris meets New York for this special collaboration between BWGH and Kith NYC. As Kith stands for friends and family, BWGH embodies the same concept as the brand was founded by two parisian friends. I have a strong respect for David and the brand and how far they’ve come in only a few years, I look forward to seeing them grow each season as they continue to produce on point collections. Both companies have a strong attention to detail for every release with an aim to produce products for a worldwide customer. The result are two Kith NYC x BWGH Crewnecks featuring a heather wool body for warmth and a french terry lined fabric for comfort representing each city.

The first navy colorway represents the city of Paris, the hometown of BWGH. On this crewneck “Just Us” is stitched across the front in red terrycloth to represent both brands and our mutual friendships. Finishing touches include navy corduroy elbow patches and a slim fit. The Kith NYC x BWGH “Just Us” Paris Crewneck will retail for $120 USD this Friday, December 14th, 2012 at Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com starting at 11am EST.

Stay tuned for the New York colorway coming soon…

When you think of a fabric that represents the United States, denim should be the first to come to mind. The inspiration behind this project was to represent the hard work that went into making Kith happen and our road to becoming a staple American retail shop/brand. The selvedge denim represents the brown room in our flagship SoHo store which is made of original 1950 bricks, 150 year old wood and American steel. Selvedge denim has always meant “toughness” to me. When I thought of the one year anniversary for Kith, I wanted to create a shoe with the brand I have the most history with and put out a shoe that represented the hard work that went into making Kith possible. By mixing the American colors red and white leather with navy selvedge denim, I believe we achieved just that with a timeless denim trainer. To wrap up the full selvedge denim upper, the shoe also includes standard Gel cushioning and leather panel stripes.

The Ronnie Fieg x ASICS “Selvedge” Gel Lyte III will be available at Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com. The shoes will release December 14th, 2012 at 11am EST retailing for $145 USD.

To purchase in-store, swing by either Kith NYC location to put your name on a list for an opportunity to purchase this Friday, December 14th, 2012.
