ALL ABOUT KILOMETRE

Travel as a lifestyle, exploration as a mark of pride, discovering the world as the ultimate luxury: Kilometre makes our imaginations go wild, drifting into far-off and unexplored places.

Kilometre uses vintage shirts as its canvas to express the meridians and parallels of travel. The shirts take their wearers on a journey down the road least travelled. Procida rather than Capri, Kastellorizo instead of Mykonos, Hudson Valley and not the Hamptons: Kilometre evades the expected, and unveils the Ibizas and Saint-Tropezs of tomorrow. Our shirts are covered with embroidered representations of these elusive places – maps, rough sketches, coordinates – each like a cherished memory.

Kilometre’s global quest has led it to producing its collections in multiple countries. Baskets from Morocco, painted plates from Senegal, carpets made by weavers in Fez, shirt dresses embroidered by hand in Mexico and India – Kilometre entrusts skilled artisans from around the world in the creation of its products.

As Dostoevsky once said, “Beauty will save the world”. We invite you to join us in our search as we journey into the great unknown.

Le luxe ultime aujourd'hui ce n'est pas d'avoir un logo sur un sac à main, c'est d'avoir une pièce qui a été brodée pendant trois mois par quelqu'un, l'énergie qu'a pu mettre quelqu'un dans son travail ce sont des chefs-d'œuvre.*
Chaque chemise qu'on fait, chaque pièce qu'on trouve sur le marché est faite par un artisan et a une valeur dix fois plus élevée que celle qu'on met Avenue Montaigne.

Alexandra Senes, creator of the brand Kilometre Paris

*Today's ultimate luxury is not having a logo on the purse, it is having a piece that was embroidered during 3 months by someone, by someone who has put energy in his work. It is a masterpiece.
