KARL KANI SS21
KARL KANI INTRODUCES ‘WORK HARDER’ AND ‘PSYCHEDILIC DESERT’ CAPSULE COLLECTIONS FOR SPRING SUMMER 21
The first drop of Karl Kani’s Spring Summer 21 collection is a story of two half’s, ‘Work Harder’ a bold monochrome, unisex work-wear collection, and ‘Psychedelic Desert’ inspired by the earthy sand tones and sun-bleached colours of the Californian desert. Both collections come together to narrate the past and present history of the brand, shown in the oversized boxy silhouettes of ‘Work Harder’ which mirror’s the same Karl Kani fits Tupac, P.Diddy and Aaliyah wore in the early 90’s. While ‘Psychedelic Desert’ draws inspiration from the brand’s current LA homeland, reimagining icons from the archive for the next generation.
‘Work Harder’ combines raw denim oversized chore jackets, utility vests, cargo pants, and shorts with box pocket and oversized embroidered Karl Kani signature logo details. Combined with white nylon anorak tracksuits, statement soft leather varsity jackets, and Matrix-esque trenches. The collection exudes the attitude and flair of Brooklyn streets in 1990, paying homage to the birthplace of the brand and where the Karl Kani story began.
‘Psychedelic Desert’ introduces an earthy tonal colour-pallet to the first drop of Spring Summer 21, warming up washed denim and classic Karl Kani sweats in soft silver pink and bleached sand bringing a West Coast flair to the collection. Ripstop desert-camo co-ord’s provide a focal point to the range, complemented by bleach dyed jersey tee’s, hoodies and denim utility vests, which introduce a vivid rust pigment into the first SS21 drop. While the women’s range channels a vibrant Lil Kim spirit with bursts of yellow, orange, and lime, alongside explosions of paint splashes and snake print, bringing a feisty energy to the ‘Psychedelic Desert’ collection. Second-skin layers, sheer tops, leotards, and cycling shorts wrap around the body, creating a fitted silhouette, flattered by cropped tee’s, hoodies and jackets.
The first drop of Karl Kani’s Spring Summer 21 collection effortlessly unites the brands past and present iconic style references together with ‘Work Harder’ and ‘Psychedelic Desert’. Bringing the best of both Karl Kani worlds together as one collection and celebrating Karl Kani’s timeless street-wear style.
