Kith Friends is a collaborative project between Kith's Ronnie Fieg and Invisible Friends' Markus Magnusson. The duo, both achieving success in their respective domains have come together for the partnership and is an ambitious effort to bridge the physical and digital realms using art and blockchain technology.
This collaborative effort resulted in a stunning collection of digital collectibles known as "Kith Friends". The collection included nine 1/1 Kith Friends for public auction showcasing a different look from Kith's Summer 2022 collections and were inspired by Kith stores around the world. unique animated art pieces for each was created by @motionMarkus inspired by kith stores in Brooklyn, Hawaii, London, LA, Miami, NYC, Paris, Tokyo and Aspen.

Owners of these Kith Friends were the only ones able to claim all of the exclusive products in the Kith for Invisible Friend capsule collection. Releasing in 3 different editions with varying color, product and size. Minters had a choice which one they minted from the website and the final allocation and thus rarity of each set was dependent on the selection during the minting process.
Each friend's colourway is only available in that particular size making the collection notably more unique and limited. The medium size is a light powder blue and white pallet with the Large favouring a rich cream wool and navy combo. The most limited (874) Extra Large, arrived in a deep black with the patches popping on the sleeves.
