Kinfolk, a brand started in 2008 by friends from New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo, has collaborated with Fila to create a limited-edition capsule collection of shirts, shorts, and an Original Fitness.
First off, the Kinfolk x Fila Original Fitness dons an “evening sand” hue that perfectly matches the apparel in the capsule. The classic Original Fitness is given a hairy suede build and honors both companies with unique details; “FILA Biella Italia,” a tribute to Fila’s birthplace, hits the heel while “Kinfolk 94 Wythe,” the brand’s Brooklyn event space, appears on the footbed.
The apparel portion of the capsule includes to classic polo pieces in evening sand and white. The shirts get stripe detailing of various widths and complimenting pops of navy for a balanced look. The running shorts, offered in evening sand and white, echo those navy pops with navy belts at the wait and a Fila F-logo clasp. Both pieces feature a co-branded Fila and Kinfolk embroidered patch as a finishing flourish.
The Kinfolk x Fila Original Fitness retails for $100, the polo shirts for $80 each, and the running shorts for $65 each. The entire capsule is available today at kinfolklife.com and and Kinfolk in New York (90 Wythe Ave, Brooklyn, NY).
