“Kings Rule Together New Online Store Launch” 

Clothing lines, photographers, hipsters, the fashion foes brands alike gathered to show support to one movement two weeks ago,  Kings Rule Together. On April 27, 2012 held the much anticipated launch of my new online store. During the K.R.T Online Store Launch, people quickly trickled in and taking in the scenery at The Gallery Exquisite ( 1040 N. American St, Northern Liberties) .

Upon one’s arrival it was hard to ignore the K.R.T. inspired paintings hanging on the walls by the artists Ivben Taqiy, Ibn Anderson, Bariq Cobbs and Ozlo. There was even a painting made in the likeness of myself. K.R.T  released 4 new products – all now available on the new online store, which were displayed on an installation piece created by Search and Rescue.

People shared laughs over hor d’oeuvres and cupcakes designed in the likeness of K.R.T’s signature crowns. by the mights end multiple prizes had been raffled off including two designer watches from BlumLux and few new item from the clothing line. K.RT. ‘s  first twenty-five guests who arrived that evening, received discounts on all apparel on the new online store. Custom INSPIRE t-shirts were available on site, where guests got to choose the colors of their shirt from OKG designs.

Dj Mike Lowry was on the 1s and 2s for the night, whereas photography was provided by Ricky Codio and Dominique Nichole.  Videography was in full effect by Derrick Woodyard & Forever Dope Society(FDS).

The night ended on the best possible note with every guest leaving satisfied, emulating the king or queen they truly are. – K.R.T.

“For all the jadenators”

Recently I had the pleasure of meeting the young superstar Jaden Smith. Jaden and his father Will Smith are currently filming a movie in Philadelphia called “After Earth” and it’s scheduled to be released in May 2012.

Since his arrival he has grown very fond of KRT, this will be the 3rd time he’s sported our apparel. Be sure to check out “After Earth” when it hits theaters we all know his talent doesn’t fall far from the tree. – K.R.T.

Jaden takes a picture wearing the signature K.R.T. design “Kings Inspire Kings” in his trailor on set at “After Earth” and posted it on his instagram.

 Jaden has a sock line called Stance and he happily gave me a two pairs for myself.

“K.R.T. first collaboration” 

Only in Philadelphia can a Duke inspire a King. Recently, Kings Rule Together (K.R.T.) completed our first collaboration t-shirt with noted hipster brand Duke & Winston. This collabo itself was inspired by  D & W’s owner Seun Olubosum and  myself after our first partnered event at the Philadelphia Apple store in mid March.  The event “Kings Inspire Dukes,” sponsored by Hylo Boutiques focused on  the beneficial roles that technology and social media play in brand-building in today’s fast-paced retail market.

This exclusive edition tee is now available for a limited time on the K.R.T. online store, get yours before its gone! HERE
