Kith launched its first women’s collection today featuring a versatile lineup of silhouettes like bomber jackets, dresses, skirts, and more reimagined through Kith’s lens using high-grade materials sourced from Japan and Italy. To coincide with the launch, Kith unveiled its latest retail space, an all-women’s focused store, designed in collaboration with Snarkitecture in Soho NYC. The store is super clean, love the marble and crisp whites and mirrors used in the design.
The retail space is approximately 400 sq ft featuring a clean minimalist aesthetic. The left wall exhibits a wall of fully casted Air Jordan 3’s (reflecting Kith’s other two stores, which have fashioned Air Jordan 1 and 2 casts in succession) along with the latest women’s kicks including brands liike Buscemi, Converse, Nike, New Balance, adidas, Vans, and Timberland. The right wall displays the Kith Women’s collection. Other products include nail polish, magazines, sunglasses, etc. The most unique part of the store has to be the marble dumbwaiter situated in the middle of the store’s floor which is used to retrieve product for customers. The marble tray lifts the desired product from beneath the floor through a 4 ft marble pillar and into a glass case, which is then handed to the customer. Dope!
Kith’s latest retail location is located at 64 Bleecker St (across from Kith’s Manhattan location).
