Kitsune Maison isn’t just a Frenchie, preppy APCesque fashion house, but also a harbinger of taste in all things hip and stylish. In fact, besides the clothing label, they’ve assembled an art collective and released not one, but several music compilations and 12″s. And it’s not just a coincidence that their CDs would be the perfect musical accompaniment for trotting around the most chic of night spots (Beatrice Inn, anyone?) or for shopping in any of the boutiques carrying the Kitsuné line, from the venerable Jeffrey New York to Bloomingdales and all the way to Colette in Paris or London’s edgy Dover Street Market. If you think you’re cool because you danced to the tunes of Simian Mobile Disco or Klaxons before anyone else, you might just have Kitsune Maison to thank!

This November, check out their most recent U.S. CD release, Kitsuné Maison 4, which will feature many exclusive and rare tracks from up and coming artists such as Dragonette, Passions, and Guns N’ Bombs, as well as current favorites Darkel, Crystal Castles, and Feist.

More on Kitsune:
Founded in 2001 and currently based in Paris and London, Kitsuné
(Japanese for “fox”) is a multifaceted company that is as much a
cutting-edge record label as it is a designer clothing label and art
collective. Comprised of an architect, graphic artists (mercenaries
for Martin Margiela, Hussein Chalayan, Air, The Cardigans, and London’s
Royal College of Art), and a music art-director (Daft Punk), Masaya
Kuroki, Patrick Lacey, Gildas Loaec, Benjamin Reichen, Kajsa Stahl, and
Maki Suzuki represent what is known to the rest of the world as
Kitsuné.

As a collective they have also thrown parties everywhere from Paris and
Tokyo to Stockholm and Ghent, and have had art exhibitions, talks, and
master classes in Singapore, Venice, Oslo, Tokyo, and London.
