Kith to open in Miami in 2016
Kith had a stellar year in 2015 that included multiple brand collaborations, a renovation to its Brooklyn store that added a Kith Treats cereal bar, and the addition of Kith Women. Riding on the momentum of 2015, founder Ronnie Fieg announced via a blog post that the retailer will open in Miami in 2016.
“I'm excited to expand outside of New York with our city's mentality and help bring some of our culture elsewhere,” said Fieg in the blog post.
Very little is known about the Miami store except that it will open in 2016 and it will be built in collaboration with Snarkitecture, which collaborated on the build out for the other Kith locations.
Fieg said, “It will be a new market for us, a market we know very well… Miami has been extremely welcoming in the past and that is why I will give this new space my all to make sure the people of Miami have a new home to come to.”
The New York native also reflected on Kith’s growth in the post as well as a slightly different direction for projects and collections.
“2016 will mark 5 years for Kith, a milestone for a brand I committed my life to,” Fieg explained. So much to be proud of, so many achievements worth serious reflection. The hard work the Set put in, the growth from 4 to 81 employees, the development of 6 departments that make everything possible… I'm going to let the projects and collections we drop this year tell the story of progression and evolution. The brand identity feels right, we're in a position to make a real difference and we will. I think what the 5 year mark means to me is that we're here to stay.”
