Kitsuné was born in 2002 following the meeting between Gildas Loaëc, who was at the time manager and artistic director of the band Daft Punk, and the architect Masaya Kuroki, who switched to fashion design. Very quickly they both decided to set up a business in line with their interests, cleverly bridging music, fashion and design. “Kitsuné is a unique concept of trendy and modern luxury intermingling fashion and music. We have been known for the quality of our choices for more than 10 years now” says Gildas Loaëc.
Special care is given to the quality of the fabrics and the tailoring of the garments – strategic sourcing of factories that still embrace artisan methods for a durable and timeless piece.
From the beginning, Maison Kitsuné collaborates with some fascinating brands, both the young and avant-garde, as well as the more perennial and classic companies such as Petit Bateau, Michel Vivien, Oliver Peoples, Pernod Absinthe or Yasmine Eslami, to share values and a savoir-faire, reinterpreting or creating exclusive products.
