DESIGNING THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE OF PLEASURE FOR URBAN DREAMERS

I am a high-end fashion urbanwear created in Italy by Mariano and Walter De Matteis, the third generation of the Kiton family. My collections have a conceptual inspiration which combine the haute couture manufacturing processes with shapes and textile structures coming from the urban architecture and metropolitan culture. I am young with a sophisticated appeal.
My collection consists of coats, jackets and joggers, shirts, sweatshirts and sneakers.
An exclusive menswear collection of matching monochrome garments with extremely clean-cut lines.

Speaking to the new generations of world citizens, I would like to be a new way to interpret your own personal style.
Taking inspirations from the artistic movement called The Blue Rider, by analogy I would like to represent the New starting from an accurate knowledge of the tailoring art and from the obsessive research of new fabrics.

 

KNT is AUTHENTICITY
I am honest to myself, respectful of my own historical DNA and pursue my own spirit without compromise, becoming one with the surrounding environment and the cultures with which I come into contact.

 

KNT is CURIOSITY
The excitement of discovery and the will to exist.
I am curious because I feel an inner desire to explore, experiment, harbour aspirations, satisfying my intimate pleasure of knowledge through which I can express my talent.

 

KNT is DREAMER
I love creating new paths, discovering and exploiting opportunities where others only see obstacles. Each day  put my determination and capacity for innovation to the test.
After all, a winner is simply a dreamer who never gives up.

 

KNT is ELEGANCE
I achieve a harmonious balance between dynamism and relaxation, design and comfort. My idea of elegance lies in this harmony.

 

KNT is EVOLUTION
I am completely self-aware and I developed my own tastes, habits and forms of behaviour in the face of the swift changes taking place in society.
The way I dress is inherited from the codes of the tailoring tradition, mixed up with a relaxed, more informal style that enables me to appreciate and absorb urban culture.

 

KNT is GLOBE TROTTER
I adore travelling, exploring new places, discovering new cultures, putting my own life in a suitcase and setting off. I am not in search of holidays but of travel: travel becomes an opportunity to learn something new and have authentic experiences that nurture my memories and certainties.
Travel as a formative experience and form of cultural intermixing.

 

KNT is NOMADISM
I am a post-modern nomad, a creative driven by the desire to discover new things.
I am attracted by minimalism and have a taste for mixing up genres and styles.
The nomadic lifestyle also involves an urge to experiment with opportunities for contacts between cultures, lifestyles, patterns of behaviour, and physical and anthropic environments and contexts that are different and remote from familiar ones.
