Following an initial preview, KITH returns with the official lookbook for its FW18 Tommy Hilfiger collaboration. KITH has chosen some of the rarest and most iconic Tommy pieces and reinterpreted them through a modern lens. Encompassing apparel, footwear, and accessories, the collaborative collection features more than 50 styles.
Two color stories are prevalent throughout the capsule, including a co-branded play on the original Tommy design and a new spin by KITH. OG patterns are then highlighted, created with custom-milled fabrics that adhere to more modern construction techniques.
Outerwear, denim, prep, and basics are all shown in the apparel category, while the footwear boasts two colorways of the Hilfiger Athletics Skew Basketball Sneaker, which hasn't been released since 1996. The shoe welcomes nubuck and full-grain leather on the upper, in addition to featuring leather lining and asymmetrical co-branding. Also included are the 6” Construct and 40 Below Super Boot in collaboration with Timberland.
The initial drop for KITH x Tommy Hilfiger FW18 takes place this Saturday, September 8, at all KITH shops and online, followed by a second delivery including the two Expedition Puffer Jackets and the Timberland boots later this year.
