Influenced by the spirit of LA, the edge of London and the balance and simplicity of Japan, the brand new KIKIITO collection of luxurious, contemporary bags has just launched with a cornucopia of silhouettes and carefully curated, unexpected touches. Simple and always authentic, the KIKIITO focuses as much on how each piece feels as how it looks.
The latest KIKIITO collection channels the brand's culturally-diverse influences, inimitable Japanese heritage, and an unwavering passion for form and function with a compilation of bags that is at once simple and graphic in design, Elevated accents, high-end finishes and unexpected detail sets this brand new collection of bags apart from any standard, luxury accessory.
The brainchild of Japanese-born, London-based designer Kiki Ito, each bag in the new collection references the time Kiki spends understanding both functionality and aesthetic design of her creations, and the impact that particular detail and usability can have on the final product, always envisagining the connection that the wearer has with each piece.
“The KIKIITO woman manifests effortless style, has a soft spot for sports luxe and does not feel that she needs to prove either her sense of style or understanding of what is in style, she just is.”
