Our NOH jersey series made a big splash this summer. The basketball jersey is back on the streets – that’s for sure. Big shout out to the 5 retail icons involved. Each of them brought their A-game and repped our colabo to the max. Here’s a look at how PATTA held it down. Bigup guys – it was a pleasure working with you! (And for all you fans out there: The limited jerseys are almost sold out – so hurry up and visit one of the shops to chop your’s before it’s too late…). Stay tuned for a look at the other shops…
Honoring the best in the business – in collaboration with:
CROOKED TONGUES / SOLEBOX / PATTA / COLETTE / SNEAKERSNSTUFF
We like to think we got game like Scrabble. That’s why we asked our five favorite shops to design one very special basketball jersey each. Of course, we dropped one as well to keep it gangsta. The “Nation of Hoop Series” is our personal contribution to the collabo-craze. It’s our tip of the hat to the shops we feel are some of the best in the business – and our latest tribute to the “most improved” streetwear item out there: the basketball jersey.
CROOKED TONGUES (London), SOLEBOX (Berlin), PATTA (Amsterdam), COLETTE (Paris) & SNEAKERSNSTUFF (Stockholm) answered the call and designed five slick jerseys, that represent their respective crews. Some (Patta / Crooked / SNS) worked on our trademark “Double-X Jersey”, others (Colette / Solebox) remixed our “Reversible Practice Jersey” – and we added a tank top just to floss our range.
The offering is topped off by six limited trading cards. These collectables feature more stats than ESPN and add some valuable insight to the league-leading shops we teamed up with.
Buckle up for a rock solid starting five and a mighty spark off the bench! All six jerseys as well as the trading cards drop early July, exclusively at these five partner retail icons, as well as KICKZ (Berlin & Monaco), Germany’s most valuable player when it comes to basketball.

Get your read on and stay tuned for more details feat. the last piece of the puzzle…

Shoes-Up has established itself as one of the best sneaker mags out there – and without a doubt #1 in France. For their summer issue, they feature a closer look at our Colette-Exclusive: The DCAC Batik Edition. Merci, bisous!
LION BASE is a documentary photo book that illustrates the creation process – and gives a revealing glimpse into the lives of the LION BASE crew – consisting of 20 struggling adolescents in Freetown, Sierra Leone. In addition to visualizing the making-of process of the BATIK Edition, the book features a variety of unseen footage from the “Inside Out” project by street artist JR, showing the typical oversize portaits of the very same protagonists of this *folorunsho project. LION BASE provides an intimate perspective at the raw life in the streets of Freetown, documenting the life these 20 youths were living under horrendous circumstances: The book’s stunning imagery invites you into a reality that most of us are unable to imagine. The book is only available at COLETTE and selected locations for a retail price of 35,-. All profits will go to the *folorunsho Sharity to provide an education and adequate living conditions for the LION BASE crew. It’s not about charity. It’s all about sharing!
Have a look at the making-of process and meet the inspiring creators of these unique batik materials. This video is the heart & soul of the collaboration with *folorunsho and already one of our all time favorites. Get in the groove and beware, that this one gets better every time you watch it. Ladies & gentlemen, introducing the “LION BASE” crew.
On Saturday, our highly anticipated DCAC Batik Edition finally dropped at the one and only COLETTE store in Paris. Big shout out to our Parisian friends for believing in us and making it happen once again – vous etes the best!

After the great success of K1X’s initial DCAC Sierra Leone series in 2011, K1Xclusive is ready to take this unique collaboration – between a young African artist collective, the *folorunsho project and basketball brand K1X – to the next level… This Saturday, May 5th 2012, COLETTE will exclusively release this outstanding pack that has made some serious noise prior to its release already. Stay tuned for a closer look…
K1X is very proud to announce the launch of our collaboration pack with Russian street artist Karina Kino. The global release will take place on Friday, April 20th 2012 @ SNEAKERSNSTUFF (Stockholm), OVERKILL (Berlin), DUDES FACTORY (Berlin) as well as KICKZ Monaco (Munich) and KICKZ.COM…
Our goal was to create a premium streetwear pack strictly for girls and make a difference in terms of charity. Thus 20% of the proceeds of the KARINA KINO X K1X collaboration will be donated to the Pavlin orphanage, a small institution that depends entirely on donations and volunteers.
Stay tuned for a closer look at this pack after the launch this Friday…
