Karl Kani streetwear available at Snipes

At Snipes you can get items from streetwear brand Karl Kani. The brand was founded in 1989 and has left a great influence on the hip-hop world.

Karl Kani: 'The Godfather of streetwear'

The streetwear brand Karl Kani was founded by Carl Williams. Born in Costa Rica in 1968, Williams started designing clothes when he was sixteen. These items took their inspiration from the city of Brooklyn and the loose-fits soon became a characteristic of the urban brand.

As a designer, Williams was increasingly in demand for his clothing items such as the 'baggy jean'. It wasn't long before his urban fashion style was appealing to a wider audience. By 1989, business was so good that Williams changed his name to Karl Kani and established his eponymous business.

His hoodies and shirts were very popular in the hip-hop world and rappers such as Tupac and Biggie Smalls were spotted wearing items from the brand.

Karl Kani is also available at Snipes. The hoodies, shirts and puffer jackets with the signature logo are available for men and women. The urban fashion brand's signature logo takes its inspiration from Carl William's original name.

Kani stands for the question 'Can I'. The designer often asked himself if he could do or make something and soon the term got its own variant; 'Kani'.
