Ronnie Fieg Has Teamed up With Clarks for His Own Footwear Line
Does Ronnie Fieg, the man behind Kith, ever stop? Clearly he doesn’t, because he’s taken to his socials to share the big news that he’s teamed up with Clarks to create his own footwear line dubbed ‘8th St’ by Ronnie Fieg for Clarks Originals. The announcement comes fresh off the back of the opening of Kith’s Paris flagship location. Which, by the way, looks as opulent as you’d expect. You can peep the imagery of the store here.
Reading through Fieg’s recent announcement via an IG post, we can see that this collaboration of sorts didn’t happen on a whim, he had this idea back in 2014 of creating a luxurious, expertly crafted footwear brand that catered to a niche audience. Wanting to build silhouettes from the ground up, in 2016 he opened up an appointment-only store dubbed World of Niché where he showcased and sold his very own products. Sadly, with Kith constantly growing, he had to shift his focus and consequently closed his location. Now, his new label will be it’s own sub-line apart of Clarks, and he’s shared a look at a slew of silhouettes via his Instagram and Twitter.
So far, the only thing close to release information that we have is that his first silhouette, the Lockhill (pictured above) will be releasing in the coming month. We’ll keep you updated when more surfaces.
