KI-PON the Project

It was the idea of creating an innovative, high-quality fashion raincoat that inspired Anna Sampietro and Alessandro Violi to launch the KI-PON Project. With an extensive experience in the field of textile design, they felt the moment had come to combine creative know-how and passion for graphic storytelling.

Their ambition is to bring a new vision to outerwear, and KI-PON is their first step in that direction. KI-PON is a perfect combination of a kimono and a hooded waterproof poncho.

KI-PON is a piece of essential elegance, entirely MADE IN ITALY, constructed from an innovative textile of the highest quality. It is water-proof and breathable, conceived with clean, clear-cut lines and yet extremely comfortable with great attention to detail.

The hallmark of its originality is a print of poetic and elegant designs appearing as pages of a story to be worn.

This new type of multifunctional, all-season, all-purpose clothing is highly versatile. This is why KI-PON comes with an easy-to-use pouch which allows you to wear it or carry it without letting changes in the weather stop you.
