Kuki London Unveil Second Capsule Collection
Fresh from celebrating its first birthday, Kuki London has announced the launch of its second capsule collection Raidaball.
The seven-piece collection is an assortment of iconic pinstripe jerseys, bomber jacket, socks and Kuki tees. Following the success of their debut ‘Classic’ collection, which launched with a pop-up store in Brick Lane, London last summer, co-founders and best friends, Nicholas (Nico) Constantinou and Eden Tarn are renowned on the London streetwear scene for releasing limited edition themed pieces that quickly sell out.
Taking influences form Japanese streetwear, Nico and Eden have merged Japanese/ American baseball culture with monochromatic colours and kanji, to create the Raidaball collection with a focus on their Mascot: Raida. To coincide with the release of the second collection, the duo has teamed up with visual artist Vinny Villain, MC Kenny Vulcan, dancer Jonathan Martinez and emerging artist Leanza May (a.k.a. The Line Girl) to direct and produce a creative short film for the launch. To capture the Raidaball collection, Kuki London has worked with London based streetwear icon Fire Chulo, who has recently been featured on the worldwide project JUSTHYPE X COCA-COLA.
It is Kuki’s mission to “break the norm”, something that it demonstrates with a gender-neutral collection that has garnered a following of over 22 thousand followers on Instagram in just one year.
Kuki London will be releasing their third collection towards the end of September this year.
