KITH x Champions joined forces for a newly released eight-piece collection. The design inspiration was an ode to retro-sportswear with KITH’s signature color palette of white, pink, red, and royal blue.
This exclusive womenswear collection will mark KITH’s debut in the global retail market via NET-A-PORTER.
KITH founder and sneaker designer extraordinaire Ronnie Fieg had the following to say about the collaboration:
” NET-A-PORTER, much like KITH, is an anomaly. They cater to all types of women in such a way that it aligns very well with the KITH ethos and what we do as a brand. I believe KITH womenswear has finally built a strong identity and come into its own. With Champion being its first collaborative collection of this magnitude it feels like a graduation from where we started. Now we are able to showcase the brand in a very unique way and I want to share that with the world.”
Available on NET-A-PORTER and sold at KITH stores worldwide.

Finding winter running gear that can check enough boxes to get you take your workout outside; keep me warm, make it functional, and something I actually want to be seen in. Please and thank you. And it just happened to find a perfect match when we stopped into the newly renovated Nike flagship store in SoHo we found one perfect outfit to run through the cold, instead of from it.

Remember that Italian sportswear brand Kappa? The iconic soccer/football tracksuit has made a comeback in the last few seasons and has returned with an updated look for the Spring/Summer 2018 collection.
Kappas trademark tracksuit is a focal point of the collection which features their iconic logo – boy and girl sitting back to back. The emblem, associated with the 80’s and 90’s when Kappa was a big player in soccer apparel. But the brands’ logo represents something greater than an ode an era. This symbol represents equality. An issue at the forefront in the daily battleground in news, polls, and the struggle to make this basic human right a real-life reality. This brand carries a good message and wearing something that represents such a powerful message doesn’t just speak to a trend but a purpose. Something I can sport and support, something I want to put on and show off. Aside from making a powerful statement, the collection itself is a standout. Here are some images to hold you over until the collection drops next year.
