Founded in 2002 by Gildas Loaëc, who was the manager of the now retired duo Daft Punk -the pride of French electronic music- and the architect Masaya Kuroki, Maison Kitsuné has formed the intersection of music, fashion, and design in its current form. Anyone who saw the iconic fox logo knew that fashion and music would come their way.
Maison Kitsuné is designing a new collection inspired by the distinct cultural identities between Paris and Tokyo in collaboration with Montblanc. In a way, the collection uses the contrast effect. Kitsuné’s cute fox joins Montblanc’s craftsmanship of leather accessories and takes its place in designs with monogram logos, Montblanc has recently introduced (which will be remembered by close followers of Saatolog).
The collection consists of leather accessories such as backpacks, headphones, wallets, and a document case; it refers to how beautiful to do creative things by distinct ways and to reach a common result. Although the aesthetic perspective of Montblanc and Kitsuné is quite different, creating new rules in a common purpose is always possible.
