Starting my own clothing brand
This is it.
The moment that I've been waiting for since I was 16 years old.
My own clothing brand, but more importantly a clothing brand with deep meaning that I've started with 3 close friends. It's exciting because each individual apart of this brand brings a totally different set of skills and experience to the table. That is so key when trying to build a new brand from the ground up.
I've been inspired by many brands growing up such as The Hundreds, Mitchell & Ness, Stussy, Huf, Patta, Bape and so many more.
BUT for me, nothing comes close to KITH and what Ronnie Fieg and his team have done. I have thousands of dollars worth of KITH merch in my closet and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I love the brand, I love what they stand for and I love that they are absolute game-changers in the industry. Everything that they create and do changes the game. Ronnie is one of my idols, him, and Kobe Bryant.
Let's talk about K!N and what it is. I wanted to create a brand that could be worn by anyone, anywhere in the world. The highest quality, unique designs, custom fits, and of course a community. The community is so key for me because I want people to feel apart of something, apart of a global movement where they have a sense of belonging.
K1N > KIN > FAMILY > ONE AND THE SAME
In simple terms, K1N is the same as KIN. This word means family. The reason there is a "1" in the logo/name is because of our slogan.
One and the same. Which means, we are all one and the same. All of us on this earth have been put here for a reason, at the end of the day we are all one and the same.
We are all humans, we all breathe, we all live, we all eat and strive to achieve. By wearing K1N, you become apart of our family forever. This is the community I want to build.
I'm beyond excited to go on this journey and prove that we can make K1N into a global brand with a massive community and presence.
We have so much coming and we know that you will love the collections we have planned.
