Ronnie Fieg is New York as the Queens native is the first-ever Creative Director for the New York Knicks.
The ascension of the Kith founder comes as no surprise as he’s worked within every facet across multiple industries from BMW, Versace, and Coca-Cola to ASICS, Nike, and New Balance. Fieg’s latest creative endeavor serves as a homecoming and full-circle moment.
After working with the New York Knicks for the past thorough seasons as a part of the team’s City Edition collections with Nike, Fieg officially joins the team with the new role.
I think they saw the passion I have for the team, and they wanted to take what we were doing together to the next level.
We shared long conversations about what the Knicks not only mean to the League, but to the world. Through these conversations, as well as the Kith partnership, they understood my vision and we began to shape this opportunity to do some very special things.Ronnie Fieg via SLAM
