KidSuper Spring/Summer 2022 Collection

What do you want to do before you die?

For the third time KidSuper’s is on the Paris Fashion Week Men official calendar, and while it has 2 Paris off-calendar runway shows under its belt – Le Cirque d’Hiver Bouglione for SS20 and Galerie Nikki Diana Marquardt for FW20 – all of its official showings with the Federation de la Mode have been digital.

“The digital format democratized fashion shows, it is not so much about budget and production but more so about ideas and meaning”, and with the first of its kind stop motion show for SS21 and a collection of short films for FW21, KidSuper anchored a front runner position.

Brainstorming on the next show, Colm asked himself and all his friends: What do we want to do next? What is the one thing we always wanted to do? What is the one thing we want to do before we die? And quickly realized the later delivered the most interesting answers. KidSuper is seeing a lot of its dreams come true, why not help others achieve their dreams?

In a KidSuper makeshift booth set up in Washington Square Park, Colm asked passers-by one question: What do you want to do before you die? The most KidSuper answers got to fulfil their dream, dressed in a look from the KidSuper Spring/Summer 2022 Collection. The result: a docuseries film documenting the realization of the dreams of some eccentric NYC characters KidSuper loves and get inspired by every day; and “a shot at best digital fashion show of the season”.

KidSuper was created by Colm Dillane

Although KidSuper is best known as Colm’s clothing label, he prefers to brand all of his creative ventures under this moniker. KidSuper is a creative collective that designs and makes clothing; paints and does art shows; records music; and makes films and music videos, all out of Colm’s Brooklyn studio. 

Colm’s strength lies in his intuitive need to conceive. He uses KidSuper as a platform to express this innate creativity. Over the past couple of years, KidSuper’s successes have made him an unexpected reference in American fashion, and his innovative and instinctive interaction with followers has proven to be a disruptive and efficient model.  

Dillane firmly believes that enthusiasm is contagious, and that whatever you do, giving it the utmost enthusiasm will lead to people’s heart. “When you are little, you believe you can do anything and that everything is possible – you’re young and you’re free. KidSuper lives by that philosophy.”

KidSuper is currently a finalist for the prestigious LVMH Prize. The winner will be announced in September.

Toast to FRANCK MULLER’s brand-new concept boutique with The Glenrothes

A collaboration between FRANCK MULLER and The Glenrothes in celebration of the former’s new space on Queen’s Road Central honours both brands’ demonstrated commitment to things that take time.
The thing with time is this. At face value, it’s a slow, idle march to the minutiae of the everyday. It’s the slog; the hard work and routines that bleed and blend into an unending, indiscernible carousel. Then, all at once, years. Decades. An entire lifetime, in a blink of an eye.
Time, as it is experienced, is an unreliable variable. To conquer any measure of it is a feat to be celebrated; a detail luxury watchmakers like FRANCK MULLER have spent years pinpointing to exactitudes. A detail Speyside distilleries like The Glenrothes have spent decades harnessing as an ingredient both sacrosanct and valuable. A detail The Glenrothes continues to progress upon with their ‘Look Beyond’ campaign, forever in search of knowledge that builds on generations of know-how, generations of determination and generations of traversing down paths less taken.
There’s a reason why matter and material that gesture at time passed — also: at time passing — are precious. Things like haute horology. Age-old whisky. Heirloom jewellery. Family traditions. Love. Our lives are transient by design; we’re hardwired to be desperate and keening for tangible evidence of things that last, of things that do not break. Of things that do not die.

Now open alongside the hustle and bustle of Queen’s Road Central is FRANCK MULLER’s brand-new conservatory of time — a 1,600-square-foot concept boutique cast in gold, royal blue and veined wooden parapets. Upon entrance through door handles embellished with an Arabic numeral ‘8’ (swivelled: the symbol for infinity), guests will find themselves immersed amid scaled-way-up horological features, from a tourbillon chandelier inspired by the curvilinear formation of a Giga Tourbillon to the Vanguard collection’s index design magnified and etched onto a marble wall.
To celebrate both the opening of the new concept boutique and the 18th anniversary of FRANCK MULLER’s Crazy Hours collection (which remains the brand’s most idiosyncratic with numerals that do not count up consecutively; instead, prancing from 8 to 1 to 6 to 11 and so on arbitrarily), The Glenrothes is on hand with sipping glasses, crystal decanters of amber gold and customised 18-Year-Old casks. So, presenting: A masterclass for the few connoisseurs with the time, the dedication and the palate tweaked towards mementoes both time-honoured and special.

This exclusive partnership with The Glenrothes is available to be enjoyed at FRANCK MULLER’s new boutique on Queen’s Road Central, as well as their outposts at The Peninsula Hotel and ELEMENTS Mall.
