Titled “Kids at Play”, the Second Semester collection includes gender-neutral tailored pantsuits and apparel fit for the playground.

Following a successful First Semester collection themed around the anti-gun violence movements that recently swept across the United States, Krost is back with the Second Semester. The latest collection takes inspiration from the youth movements of the 60s – like the anti-war, desegregation and women’s rights movements – that are still important and impact society in this day and age.

Krost’s Second Semester, themed “Kids at Play”, is a playful mix of unisex tailored pantsuits and casual basics. It features baseball- and basketball-inspired apparel, grounding the collection in the memories of our childhood playgrounds.

The collection’s basics, like the hoodies, beanies, T-shirts, and jumpsuits, carry the slogan “Support Your Friends” or SYF. A personal slogan for brand founder Samuel Krost, it encompasses the driving force behind social change and protest movements. It enables people to rally together behind a belief they share whether they’ve just met or known each other for a lifetime, to lift one another up and effect social change.

Beyond social change, Krost’s Second Semester shows its commitment to inclusivity through the use of a gender-neutral cut for the tailored pantsuits and simple color tones, making the pieces versatile enough for any gender, style or occasion – you could wear the pants with a hoodie and hit the stores or walk down the red carpet in the full suit.
