Beyond promoting its own apparel, Kinfolk aims to recreate its 94 Wythe flagship location within Lane Crawford by curating other brands and collections traditionally found at The Kinfolk Store, such as Bleu De Paname, Album, and Powers. While each brand participating in the collaborative store will also create exclusive product through Kinfolk’s lens, providing Lane Crawford customers with a truly curated shop-in-shop experience where favorited items such as a throwback Kinfolk Bicycle alongside a chosen assortment of Art, Books, and coffee will be available at the pop-up shop.
“Anytime we have the chance to work with a larger company that fundamentally understands what we are trying to do – we do it,” reveals Keith Abrams, Managing Director at Kinfolk about the collaboration. “Lane Crawford has been very supportive and great to work with throughout the entire process. Their team recognized what we are doing and wanted to bring the Kinfolk lifestyle to their audience for its “Let’s Live Better” program. We believe that this partnership will introduce what Kinfolk really is to the other side of the planet.”
