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.
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.

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.

Initially when looking for something fashionable to wear, often I would overlook the turtleneck . Over the years peoples perception of the “turtleneck” was altered due to years of brands only targeting the more mature crowd such as; grandfathers, grandmother etc, thus the turtleneck has evolved into a “must have” for the fashion innovator. As traditional Americana circumvented back into the mainstream fashion industry, this created an outlet for the turtleneck to be reintroduced.
