With Gildas we were thrilled of the opportunity Pitti gave us to participate to an event like this, and it was with a big pleasure that we received the invitation. We were particularly pleased to be given the chance to present the collection, for the first time, as a show. We were really excited; excited to have fun. Certainly next time we'll proposed something else, and it's what we like, always proposing something new.
It was the perfect way to introduce ourselves, and say who we are and what is Maison Kitsuné . It's true that we have our own label, a real music label; and a brand, a real fashion brand. It came naturally to our minds that the artists we signed under the label wear the collection, and be the image. It was like releasing a new song or a new record, but this time it was the clothes.
It's new but it's not a concept. It's a label and a brand, and they are two complete different things. The label is existing by itself, as the brand. The show was just the occasion to mix them both, but we are really considering them as two different projects that embrace our two passions. Music and fashion always evolved together, but the way we are created it is, I think, new.
Our inspirations are coming from our lives, our daily lives. When I'm working on a collection I'm really drawing what I want and feel. The style is really Parisian, and the clothes are classics but at the same time really modern.
We are opening in february the Tokyo Store, following the opening of New York last April, that we are really excited about. We'll keep on the collections while the label is constantly growing, with artists as Citizens! or Two Doors Cinema Club. Music is going faster than fashion.
