COLLINS AVENUE, MIAMI, USA
from where you are
Miami Beach, Miami Vice: are they clichés? In a city run by loud mamacitas and overly tanned joggers, edgy art and fashion have slowly but surely changed the face of Florida’s glitzy diva. Contemporary art has taken over South Beach with a whoosh, since Art Basel decided to take up residence here. Nowadays, snowbirds are not the only ones flocking to Miami Beach – visitors can go for weeks without even setting foot on the sand in 99-cent chacletas. Though under the hip varnish of avant-garde respectability, the Vice version of Miami still stands, in a mix of neon, kitsch and elegant soberness.
DESCRIPTION These 19th century white dress-shirts, originally meant for men, come from the South of France. Extremely flexible they reflect light and have been used in movies like Gladiator or Lincoln. Made from linen, hemp or nettle, extremely durable, they can live for years. Kilometre reinvents this unique style by adding intricate embroideries with travel destinations on them to create a truly one of a kind piece.
Hand embroidered in Mexico, 100% linen. Available in one unique size. COLOUR WHITE
GOODIES All Kilometre products come with a passport (a travel guide matching the destination of the product + booklet about the brand and its history) and a “second skin”.
All Kilometre products are hand-woven and hand-embroidered, similar to the techniques used to create haute couture. This shirt was made especially for you, so please don’t expect the same production times as fast fashion.
