Victor Cruz’s torn patellar tendon may have cut his NFL season short, but at least it hasn’t stopped him from landing dope modeling gigs.
Following his Gap ads, the New York Giants wide receiver stars in the new lookbook for KITH’s collaborative line with Japanese brand Ones Strokes. The collection, set to release this weekend, features an extensive range of top-tier threads inspired by traditional Japanese garb. Pieces like distressed denim, shawl collar blazers, and Mandarin collar jackets are presented with high-quality fabrics and Western touches—resulting in a line that is classic yet refreshing.
“Victor has always been fashion forward,” KITH founder Ronnie Fieg told WWD. “Not only has he supported KITH for a very long time, he is also one of my closest friends—a brother. I felt that there would be no one better to help me deliver this collection to the world than him.”
Though Cruz has had previous experience modeling for fashion campaigns, this particular release is especially exciting as it marks Ones Strokes’ introduction to the States, as well as the first high-end line for KITH.
