With summer’s anticipated arrival already in mind, Maison Kitsuné announces its latest capsule collaboration with American songwriter and visual artist Kilo Kish.

Inspired by Maison Kitsuné‘s French roots and the classic American summer, Kilo Kish brings to fruition an exclusive collection for the brand. “With an effortlessly French label such as theirs, I thought to design pieces that represented some of the more endearing American traditions for this collection.”

Celebrated for her uniquely feminine rap style and genre-bending approach, Kilo Kish has been named “Artist to Watch” by Rolling Stone, MTV, Complex, The New York Times, Time Magazine, among others. Along with her musical success, she’s won the adoration of the fashion industry, as she is often described as a “style star” gracing the pages of magazines including VOGUE, ELLE, Glamour and NYLON. With one foot in fashion and the other in music, Kish’s collaboration with Maison Kitsuné was a natural fit for the multi-faceted brand.

Co-founder and creative director Gildas Loaëc adds, “As we’ve worked with her these last few years through the Kitsuné music label and having her model previous Maison Kitsuné collections, we’re excited to have finally collaborated with such a creative and talented artist, one who is so in line with the brand’s aesthetics and style.”
