The beloved 80s hip-hop clothing brand is leading an Autumn campaign and we are happy to say is catching up with the fashion of today
And it wasn’t just the ‘fits. Founder and design powerhouse, Williams, became an industry pioneer – he was the first designer to host a fashion show at the White House during President Bill Clinton’s term in 1999. And was committed and dedicated to galvanizing the black community, with Karl Kani Jeans as the first to employ an all-black sales force in retail.
Against all odds, the brand is still widely recognized and loved to this day, maintaining its die-hard fanbase and adding new ones with the rise of nostalgia fashion (+ festival season, of course). All the while, it’s stayed very much true to its classic roots, while incorporating seasonal color palettes and subtle stylistic flairs. We are stan so hard.
All eyes on the Fall/Winter campaign, which has us wishing for the end of summer, just so we can layer up (head-to-toe Karl Kani, obviously). Unisex color block hoodies, quilted puffer jackets, perspex bags, bracelets, and bucket hats are all currently being added to our wishlist right now.
