‘Kitsuné was founded in 2002 in Paris by Gildas Loaëc, Masaya Kuroki and the London-based design company Åbäke, consisting of Patrick Lacey, Benjamin Reichen, Kajsa Ståhl and Maki Suzuki. Loaëc and Kuroki, who both like fashion and music, had the idea of founding a company involved in both areas during a trip to Japan. Before co-founding the company Loaëc worked with Daft Punk and also with Thomas Bangalter‘s record label Roulé.
