I’ve never been to Pittsburgh so when I got the phone call about the Invigorate Your Sole Lecture at Carnegie Mellon University, I was excited to get on board. I’m still not sure on how I feel about speaking engagements, I don’t believe I have accomplished half of what my goals are so it’s a little weird for me. The truth is, I don’t believe I’m doing anything that others can’t do. All it took was work and dedication. Come see on Monday to hear more about the process and how to get it going in this industry. Seats are limited, be sure to RSVP at http://on.fb.me/XZUjNX.

We wanted to create a lookbook that encapsulated the spirit of the people who influenced Kith’s entrance into the women’s and kids business, as well as moving forward into a full men’s collection. The pieces for men’s, women’s and kids are alike and all hand made in New York City with no compromise on style or quality across the genders and ages. This mentality inspired the vision for the lookbook where the three tiers of business were reorganized on different level bleachers to represent the unity within the collection. Kith is a family affair and I continue to be aware of the growing needs of customers and thus the growth of business. The lookbook was shot in collaboration with photographer 13thWitness and directed by Kith’s own Mellany Sanchez. Check out the Kith NYC White Label collection at Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com exclusively starting tomorrow, March 23rd, 2013.

Over the years Justin has changed the game with his music. The lyrics paint a picture and this video has quickly become one of my favorites from JT. It’s good to watch videos that deliver powerful messages, most videos these days aren’t remembered for longer than a few minutes after viewing.
