Ronnie Fieg pulled all of New York’s most fashionable figures out last night for KITH Sport, a sprawling fashion event where he showed several upcoming collaborations and a whole slew of sports-themed capsule collections. Held at the Classic Car Club on New York’s west side, the venue was transformed into a miniature stadium, replete with championship flags hanging from the rafters.
Each part of the show was broken down by a sport, ranging from soccer, skiing and basketball. Speaking of which, legendary Bulls player Scottie Pippen himself stepped out to model a tracksuit while wearing Fieg’s upcoming Air Maestro II sneaker, an original design that plays on one of Pippen’s signature shoes.
But then the lights went low again, and the king himself, LeBron James, stepped out in an unseen pair of LeBron 15s while rapping along to Kanye West and JAY-Z’s “H.A.M.” off Watch the Throne.
The footwear goodness didn’t stop there, as plenty of shoes were shown from Timberland collabs to mountain-ready hiking boots. The Moncler collab definitely stood out, combining the luxury outdoors label’s penchant for color blocking and quilting with overt branding and a sportier appeal. Though KITH fans will be pleased to see a continuation of Fieg and Virgil Abloh’s OFF-WHITE collaboration.
Last time, they went with the time of “OFF-PALETTE,” but it looks like this year the two are going with a theme of “JUST GLOBAL” — a riff on KITH’s “Just Us” motto. After the show, the back of the venue opened to serve drinks, KITH Treats ice cream mixed with Frosted Flakes and matcha green tea Kit Kats, and other light fare. There was also a series of limited-edition KITH Sport hoodies and tees available to attendees. See all the collaborative collections below.
