Maison Kitsuné is conceived in 2002 by Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, co-founders and creative directors.
A trip to Japan inspires them to bring their passions together around a single concept: one-of-a-kind brand that unites fashion and music. The name « Kitsuné » , meaning « fox » in Japanese and a symbol of versatility, struck them as the most obvious choice.
Ever since then, season after season, they’ve been unveiling a contemporary vision of fashion influenced by Paris and by Tokyo. Maison Kitsuné men and women recognize this perfect balance between tradition and modernity, comfort and simplicity, chic and laid-back. While the « classics » are constantly reinvented, giving the collections a sense of timelessness, the daring mix of colours, prints and materials anchor them firmly in the zeitgeist. With a passion for all things beautiful and a keen eye for detail and finish, the house has a unique savoir-faire.
In 2013, a new concept is added to the ready-to-wear brand and music label : the Café Kitsuné. Fusing fashion, music and design, Café Kitsuné – two in Paris and one in Tokyo - pays tribute to the simple pleasure of enjoying a good coffee in venues that are modern, cosmopolitan and friendly.
In the fourteen years following its creation, the brand has consistently grown and increased its international influence with more than 300 sales points around the world, including four of the brand’s own boutiques in Paris, two in New York, two in Tokyo and one in Hong Kong.
