Kith NYC follows up their “Daytona” apparel collection with the New York Natives 1996 capsule. With the goal of imagining what Kith would have looked like if it had opened in 1996, the inspiration for each piece comes straight from popular brands and musical influences from that era.
Starting off the collection are two Golden Bear varsity jackets, with leather sleeves on the burgundy colorway and calf nubuck sleeves on the orange. All the ribbing on both jackets are custom Navajo knits. The New York Native Washington Hooded Rugby features fleece protection with a stitched Indian head embroidery, a theme throughout the collection, along with Kith sport logo embroidery on the opposite arm. Bold New York Native applique is added to the front of each along with 1996 on the back. The New York Native Jefferson Striped Button-Down Shirt is made with a medium weight cotton for durability. Sublimated print makes up the front while brown marbled buttons finish off the look. The Stanton Sweatpant features a heavyweight fleece fabric with a tapered slim fit and a drawstring waist for adjustment. Logo NYN Crewnecks arrive with a comfortable fleece featuring the New York Native Indian print logo on the front and 1996 on the back. Key details include raglan sleeves and ribbed side gussets. Wrapping up the collection are three New York Native Starter snapbacks, two with matching New York Native branding on the crown in raised embroidery, and with the third using the Indian logo motif.
