KidSuper was created by Colm Dillane.
Colm’s strength lies in his intuitive need to conceive. He uses KidSuper as a platform to express this innate creativity. From collaborations to commercial achievements, KidSuper’s successes have made him a reference in the New York streetwear scene. This innovative and instinctive interaction with followers has proven to be a disruptive and efficient model.
Colm sold T-shirts in his high school cafeteria but went on to study mathematics at university. “For me, math is the essence of creativity; you can’t change the rules, but how can you think creatively to solve the problem?”
Although KidSuper is best known as Colm’s clothing label, he prefers to brand all of his creative ventures under this moniker. KidSuper is a creative collective that designs and makes clothing; paints and does art shows; records music; and makes films and music videos, all out of Colm’s Brooklyn studio.
Dillane firmly believes that enthusiasm is contagious, and that whatever you do giving it the utmost enthusiasm will lead to people’s heart. When you’re little you believe you can do anything and that everything is possible – you’re young and you’re free. The idea behind KidSuper is to maintain that philosophy.
Fall/Winter 2021 Collection
If the plan doesn’t work, you’re insane
If the plan works, you’re a genius
This is KidSuper’s second season on the Paris Fashion Week Men official calendar. Last season’s stop motion show brought a lot of attention to the brand and this new collection will undoubtedly anchor Colm’s creative voice.
Putting his film maker hat on, Colm Dillane stages his newest collection with a character film of 7 short stories – a “KidSuper-esque” folk tale about New York City and its people.
“I make clothes that I want to wear. I come up with ideas that I want to create. I always wanted to direct a short film. For this collection I made 7 short films around eccentric characters alive in this NYC world that I am inspired by every day. As for the clothes, they feature paintings/drawings of these NYC moments that continuously hearten me.” Colm Dillane
