Maison Kitsuné are no strangers to expansion and diversification. Founded in 2002 as a record label, Kitsuné now operate the original record label, the ever-growing clothing brand, and a variety of cafés across three continents. Their next move, though only a physical step-up, could their biggest yet: onto the runway. As Maison Kitsuné engages increasingly daring designs, the conceptual vision necessary for runway fashion has begun to trickle down to the label’s off-the-rack collections.
The Maison Kitsuné Fox—the visual element that holds together the label’s ready-to-wear range—is also making moves. As the fox further cements its iconic status in the world of contemporary fashion, so too is it able to take new forms. Far from a hunter’s trophy head, recent iterations have introduced the fox as a full character, as the label carves out a world for their namesake mascot. Such experiments test the fox’s icon status, raising the question: how far can the label push the fox while ensuring that it remains instantly recognizable?
With many people doing their grocery shopping at street markets in their neighborhoods or beyond, nowhere in the world is a sturdy shopping tote more essential than in the city of Paris. With the Palais Royal Shopping Bag, Maison Kitsuné pay homage to the unique shopping traditions of their home city.
Never ones for the unstructured, flimsy totes that struggle when filled with produce, the Parisian label constructs all their totes from hardwearing cotton canvas. The Palais Royal Shopping Bag sits firmly in the center of the label’s tote bag selection, aspiring to elegantly detailed simplicity in this natural cotton ‘Ecru / Black’ colourway.
Constructed from an extra-durable cotton-polyester blend canvas, this indestructible tote features reinforced handles and the Maison Kitsuné ‘Palais Royal’ motif printed on the face.
Made from 100% cotton.
