The “luxification” of streetwear continues with New York streetwear boutique Kith collaborating with luxury down haberdasher Moncler. While the Moncler collection of hoodies, sweatpants and tees are par course, what really got Luxuo’s attention was the triple brand mash up, joining the sneaker talents of Asics with Moncler and Kith.
