“This one’s for me. Growing up, my mother collected leopard shoes and clothing and has been wearing leopard furs since I was a kid. I always loved the print I remember having leopard sheets for years lol. A few weeks after deciding to open the Kith shop, I went material shopping and it took forever to find this leopard fabric which was under a bunch of shit and felt like it was laying there for years. Even though it was just sitting there for a while it was expensive as shit but worth every penny. Producing garments in New York City is very expensive and isn’t easy but when I throw this jacket on it feels amazing knowing I produced the piece literally around the block from the shop.”
This jacket will be available November 25, 2011 for Black Friday at the Flagship Kith shop as well as online on Kithnyc.com.
