Parisians aren't the only ones who will soon be getting a little slice of Kitson for themselves—according to WWD, the brand's plans for world domination are picking up steam. In addition to two new Tokyo stores, one which is due to open in September and the other in March, founder Fraser Ross is "in talks to open boutiques in China, South Korea and Singapore, possibly in the next year." He tells the trade rag that he's also got his sights set on London, and is open to "selling or going public" in order to further his expansion goals.
But that doesn't mean he's forgotten about his hometown fans. WWD goes on to tell us that the new Kitson Men shop at Malibu Lumber Yard will be opening this weekend, and that Kitson Kids will be taking up a spot on Disneyland's Main Street USA come July. Because nothing says wholesome Americana like baby UGG boots and pint-sized True Religions.
