no one oozes ‘cool’ like the queen of soul herself!
that neo-soul singer from the 90’s makes us want to kick back, light up the incense, and blast those jazzy tunes that we all know and love so well.
Badu never forgets who she is, and expresses it openly through her speakeasy sounds, that attention commanding stare, her unapologetic personal style and some seriously big hair… I mean, who doesn’t want to be Erykah Badu for a day? (we do.)
but… lets get down to her iconic style;
her love of bold colours and accessories, her ability to combine authentic African style with modern tailored fashion, and lest we forget her signature African head wraps! her individuality will inspire us time and time again…
oh Erykah… you’re everything we love in a woman and so much more!

twists and turns and knots and gnarls. around every corner, you’ll find a curiosity… and in New York, you’ll find our tree!
next time you step foot in New York cast your eyes upon our very first boutique north of the equator. it’s a collision of the natural and the man-made world, a space created to capture the energy and spirit of the brand. the design centers around a monumental sculpture piece that organically weaves in and out of the space to create this feeling that you’re immersed in nature.
with the help of architect Kelvin Ho from Akin Creative, the vision came to life at our Broome St boutique.
rafted out of steel & fiberglass, the sculpture was covered in (wait for it…) t-shirts! resin-dipped layers of fabric straight off our backs. turning our flagship store into a glacial forest!
build a tree of tees… and they will come.

Kicky Saints just hit VAMFF!
our latest pre-fall collection took to the runway in rich detail… with layered, graphic and textured pieces styled purposefully to clash!
the female form became free in the contrast of sharp powerful lines against the fluid movement of layered silk draping
modern graphics, embellishments & placement motifs celebrated the female form…
…while sharp shapes and strong lines collided to honor the masculine.
free from restraint and available for purchase early April…
this is Kicky Saints

introducing our woven leather collection…
these are not just your ordinary leather garments (no, no!) they are crafted beautifully with hand woven panels throughout.
the craftsmanship involved in each and every one of these styles is nothing short of a work of art… and a process that takes us just over 2 months to complete one style!
first we scour europe for it’s finest leather. next we have each garment hand woven and crafted by the best team in india. and finally, it’s ready for someone to love…
