01 Magazine Feature Interview with Kitsune
So Kitsune, the Parisian creative label, got together with 01 Magazine for a feature interview. As you may or may not know, Kitsune are a bit like Acne, they dabble in lots of things, their main sectors being clothing and music.
As you delve into the interview, you get to know a lot more about the brand and how they developed over time. I really like the stories of how the two co-founders met, i also got really interested when they started discussing Daft Punk.
You can see this in the quote below, amazing to think they are really good friends with the famed group, all through a small record store. Connections prove vital these days.
How did you meet and decide to go into partnership?
Masaya: I just graduated from architecture school. Gildas at the time had a cool record store in 1st district of Paris which I frequented often. All the French touch guys were going to the store. Because of my my regular visits in the store I became friend with DaftPunk, Pheonix, Casius, etc.etc. Daftpunk had a project that they were going to work on in Japan and during that time Gildas was their manager. They propositioned me to come over to work on the project with them. We spent a lot of time in Tokyo together. It was during this time that Gildas and I realized that we had similar ideas about starting a business with music and fashion. Our agreement to become partners was really simple.
