Let me introduce you to the budding premium fashion accessory line of Mr. Kito Flex
Growing up in Houston, TX, 26 year-old Kito Flex always had big dreams of being successful and always had a love for fashion, especially unique accessories that assisted in making his outfits stand out from the crowd. Kito had the artistic idea to create a men’s accessory line (must be the dog…lol…kidding) that would reflect his unique style while staying true to his Houston roots. In early 2013, the Kito Flex Collection was born.
Gia On The Move: “This dude is “killin’ it”! And we love the inspirational message on the back of his labels. Check out what he recently wrote to his Instagram followers:
.“You guys probably never noticed this but, I do have an inspirational message on the back of all my products! Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. #HappySunday Be blessed “
Bringing awareness of Houston culture to the forefront and cultivating design filled with inspirational art and creativity the line currently includes four premium sock patterns:
- “Baby Bottles”,
- the vicious red “Bomb” socks,
- the swangin’ “SLAB” socks (Slow, Loud, and Bangin aka a fully customized car)
- and the most popular socks shrouded in “Lean Cups” filled with purple drank, inspired by the music of DJ Screw, UGK, Slim Thug and other Houston legends.
“It’s a brand that represents, and is influenced by, a Houston culture…a society that the whole world is slowly trending on. I’ve taken ordinary accessories and just added my creative twist to it and hope everyone else enjoys the art. I believe, no matter race or gender, my brand has something to offer to all individuals.” – Kito Flex
The popularity of the Kito Flex Collection is spreading like wild fire and currently you can spot Houstonians all over rocking these socks. We love the line at Gia On The Move because it’s just plain fun and sexy. Plus we’re huge advocates of edgy entrepreneurs on the pulse! …and Gia will be rockin’ her own pair(s) very shortly. :)
