Encompassing both music and fashion, Kitsune was founded in 2002 in Paris by Gildas Loaec and Masaya Kuroki. They have since gained considerable recognition over the years with their "Super collaborations" with the likes of APC, Colette and Pierre Hardy.
The name Kitsune comes from the Japanese language, the meaning of which is Fox. The Kitsune is said to have the power to change its appearance and its face. The many faces and appearances of the Kitsune represent the different parts and directions of the Kitsune brand.
The Spring-Summer 2012 collection is inspired by the classic movie, "The Great Gatsby", with some beautifully fresh colours showcased wonderfully through premium quality fabrics. Things are topped off nicely with their super-slick Moccasin shoe, hand-made in Maine, USA by Quoddy.

Just arrived and available to buy instore and online are two of the best brands we have come across. Both hailing from Japan, Nanamica and Head Porter are bringing us some absolute classically styled pieces, re-touched with a modern, technical twist.
Translated into English as "House of the Seven Seas", Nanamica are perhaps best known for their work with The North Face on the highly exclusive (and unfortunately Japanese only) The North Face Purple Label, which see's Nanamica take classic North Face pieces and give them a full reconstruction using high-tech fabrics and some crazy fabrics - their Bodywarmers and Backpacks are must see pieces.

Utilising the same ethics as Nanamica, Head Porter, a division of the legendary Yoshida & Co., have been making luggage and accessories as far back as the mind dare to wander. Their bags really are second to none, and as with Nanamica, were until recently only available to the extremely lucky Japanese market. We could go on all day about just how good the luggage is but we feel its best to take a look at the products themselves which should give some inclination to their superior qualities.

So as a little treat to the guys in our studio, we decided to send them out into the cold (we call it "Fresh" they called it "Cold"), and out and about in Middlesbrough near our store to hopefully show how the two brands work fantastically well together.

Fast becoming a favourite here at Triads, the TSOVET watches are a thing of aesthetical beauty. Adding a touch of functional class to any outift the watches feature finely knurled dial knobs, distinct indicator arms, balanced fasteners and jewelled layers.
