kin is a new fashion label for women and girls that merges simplicity and inventive design with high-quality workmanship and sustainable production practices. Nami & Miriam, the founders, met over 20 years ago at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, where they not only shared a studio space but an approach to design and patternmaking.
Their individual experiences as designers span a wide spectrum, from John Galliano to Moschino. A common commitment to design and sustainability now drives them to pursue a more progressive way of making clothing.
Kin SS16 Collection
kin was founded on the belief that what we make is just as important as how we make it. kin’s cotton fabrics are dyed using low impact, Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS) certified dyes.
All prints are designed to work with heritage block printing techniques, which supports artisanal rather than mass production and uses vegetable dyes rather than chemical compounds. Innovative and considered patternmaking is an important part of the design process with the aim of reducing fabric waste.
You can find loose-fitting garments in beautiful neutral colours like sand, Moroccan blue, ink or espresso. Their clothes are comfortable and well-designed and allow free movement.
Simple, beautiful, and environmentally-friendly designs!
We also recommend having a look at their women collection. We’re sure you’ll want more than one piece for you!
