Kith appears to be coming to Paris
Kith’s arrival in France was first hinted at in a now-deleted Instagram post from Fieg, showing the Kith founder signing official-looking documents and mentioning Francky B., head of Sneakerness Paris.
On his own Instagram account, Francky B. appeared to further confirm the news alongside a video post that showed Fieg signing the documents.
“I have been waiting on this moment for a minute,” he wrote. “We made it happen my brother. France please welcome Kith the way it deserves.”
Fieg and Francky B., both longtime prominent figures in the footwear industry, have run in the same circle for years. On Instagram, the two have mentioned each other in posts as early as 2014.
Established in 2011, Kith now operates seven locations within the United States. Earlier this year, Kith brought its first permanent international store to Selfridges in London.
Kith - which continues to draw praise from consumers and ink partnerships with brands from Estée Lauder to Versace - is yet to officially confirm a Paris location.
Elsewhere on the global streetwear scene, resale platform StockX - a fellow American company that also recently expanded to Europe - has raised millions in funding, bringing the company's total valuation up to over $1 billion.
