“Our products are made for movement but they are streetwear rather than athletic wear”, that’s how young contemporary premium clothing Kit & Ace wants to position itself. The brand is the latest project of the lululemon family. Born in 2014, as brainchild of Shannon, the former lead designer of Lululemon, and her stepson, J.J., son of Chip Wilson, Lululemon’s founder and ex-CEO, the label was launched with the aim to create streetwear with technical fabrics such as technical cashmere, a machine washable fabric engineered from cashmere and technical fibers, with added stretch.

The idea came up during traveling, when they recognized a gap in the luxury apparel industry. After spending years dressed head to toe in stretchy performance wear, they were looking for clothing that offered the same functionality but met their desire for sophistication, style and luxury.

The collection offers both men’s and womenswear including underwear and accessories. Although they only hit the market last year the brand is already operating several stores among several retailers. It has retail stores in over 30 locations including Vancouver, San Francisco, Toronto, Saskatoon, New York City, Calgary and Edmonton. Each Kit and Ace store is uniquely local in its design and each shop experience is tailored to its environment. Across all stores customers will find gallery inspired spaces that feature the work of local artists, photography that is iconic to each city, as well as custom light fixtures and furniture. Retail prizes for the products range from $28 for underwear to $378 for jackets.
