I can remember a few years back reading the Philadelphia Magazine in the barbershop saying I need to be in this magazine. I always considered myself as a fashion maven residing in the area so I knew that one day a kings dream would come true. Now 3 years later I had the pleasure of being featured in the March 2013 issue for fashion highlighting “20 best dressed Philadelphian’s”. It was a honor to be recognized in such a notable level amongst many other fashionable people in the city of Philadelphia. As fashion is something I breathe, to be labeled as this in the city that I was born and raised in and carry it on my back everywhere I go is an honor and truly an amazing feeling.
“Kings in Germany”
Recently I had the opportunity to travel to Schuttoff, Germany with a great friend of mine, singer/songwriter Corey Latif Williams. Some may not know but he was the first person who opened my eyes to using the word “King”. He explained why he used it and its empowerment to others by calling each other something with a greater meaning. Latif and myself became real close over the past years which I have been able to travel with him on many different occasions and styling him for all his endeavors. Luckily this time it was in a new country.
All Star Weekend was hosted this year in Houston, Texas. We were super pumped when we found out that arguably the best basketball player on the planet LeBron James of the Miami Heat had worn our K.R.T x NBHB “Kings Inspire Kings” collaboration pin, front row at the 2013 NBA Slam Dunk contest.
“Past creation can inspire new ideas”. -K.R.T.
K.R.T. introduces its second collection Pre Spring 2013 titled “Abstract” which was inspired by an innovative artist of the late 19th century by the name of Piet Mondrian. A Dutch born artist Piet became an important contributor to the De Stijl art movement best known for his non-representational form termed Neo-Plasticism.
