关于KKtP

 

“‘KKtP’ 来源于国际象棋中专用名词的简写,代表着 ‘国王一侧骑士前的士兵’。国际象棋的规则里,士兵只能向前不能后退,一旦能够行进到对手底线,则可以升级为皇后。我想以小兵的身份时刻提醒自己坚持向前,目标很高,实现起来当然不易,但最重要是一步步脚踏实地。” ——Kim Kiroic

 

KKtP 是 鞋履设计师Kim Kiroic (金奇洛)在2008年曾于上海开设的店铺名字。当时的KKtP 不仅售卖设计师自家出品的球鞋产品,也集合了诸如SANKUANZTYAKASHA 等一众现今炽手可热的设计师产品。KKtP 店铺仅存在了6个月时间。2013Kim 带着自己的球鞋系列重回巴黎之际,为了鼓励自己找回多年前那个奋勇向前的小兵,于是重新启用了这个名字。

 

不断成长的KKtP 正在时刻刷新自己的定义。如今的KKtP 品牌由Kim Kiroic (金奇洛)领导下的创意团队打造,自2006年起深耕的设计师鞋履领域外开始延展至服饰及配饰系列,以及涉猎更多元化的设计师产品零售、视觉创意及产品设计领域业务。

 

在鞋履设计领域,Kim Kiroic (金奇洛)通过自主品牌系列出品以及为知名设计师们联乘设计而被大众认识,并得到大量媒体报道。KKtP 起始于设计师最擅长的时装球鞋,自2013年发布首个系列以来,每年两季在巴黎、米兰及上海时装周期间发布,与全球各个时尚潮流名所合作并构建了全球销售网络。在近年,更为遍布海外时装学院的New Talent 毕业生项目提供鞋履支持而广受好评。

 

在时装设计领域,KKtP 2017年春夏季起,以团队制服为出发点发布首个胶囊系列。目前设计及研发团队已日益完善,并将在未来持续稳定的开始其正式时装系列的发布。

 

KKtP 团队在完整其横跨鞋履、配饰到服装产品设计研发能力的同时,也广泛涉足商业品牌设计服务与联名系列的打造。同时创意团队也吸收了来自视觉影像、平面设计、建筑空间设计等各领域的力量,从事更加丰富立体的品牌形象及视觉创意工作。

 

在项目的最新阶段,KKtP 团队更为大家带来了 KKTP.COM,一个旨在为本地带来新的美学风向以及为设计新星们提供零售支持的网络电商平台。它重新回到很多年前那个设计师集合店的形态,希望更多设计师如同奋勇向前的小兵一样汇集成强大的力量。

 

ABOUT KKtP

 

“‘KKtPemanate from a chess term, meaning Kings knights pawn. In chessrules, the pawn can only go forwards and never backwards, once the pawn making through the base line of the other side it will upgrade to the queen. I try to remind myself as a pawn to always keep going and aim high, for sure its harder than it sounds, but whats important is to do it step by step.
