Two years ago almost every person around me asked why I would get into apparel design. My answer was simple, the challenge. I love to create and the feeling of accomplishment is greater when working uphill. The projects and collaborations coming this year are the result of hard work and no sleep, something Mr. Mcnairy is very familiar with. This collaboration with Mark will change the game, the main reason we got together in the first place. Stay tuned.

As part of Kith NYC’s Independence Day releases, we’re pleased to present the Kith NYC 4th of July capsule apparel collection. The limited edition clothing includes two ready-to-wear summer white tank-tops that say “Kith” and “Just” on the front in red, white and blue leopard print ($28 USD). Both tank-tops are printed a soft 50/50 polyester cotton blend fabric for comfort all summer long. Also included in the release are two cotton twill button-down shirts. The red short sleeve ($95 USD) features white and blue bottom accents and the blue long sleeve shirt ($115 USD) offers red and white accents at the bottom. The two bottom options are designed with cotton twill fabrics with one pair of red shorts with blue and white striped accenting ($85 USD) and one pair of blue pants with red and white striped accenting ($110 USD).
