Kitsuné is a French electronic music record label and fashion label created in 2002 by Gildas Loaëc, Masaya Kuroki and the London-based company Åbäke. Kitsune (きつね, 狐) is the Japanese word for "fox".

Background[edit]

'Kitsuné was founded in 2002 in Paris by Gildas Loaëc, Masaya Kuroki and the London-based design company Åbäke, consisting of Patrick Lacey, Benjamin Reichen, Kajsa Ståhl and Maki Suzuki.[1][2][3][4] Loaëc and Kuroki, who both like fashion and music, had the idea of founding a company involved in both areas during a trip to Japan. Before co-founding the company Loaëc worked with Daft Punk and also with Thomas Bangalter's record label Roulé.[3][5][6]

The name[edit]

The name Kitsuné comes from the Japanese word kitsune (Hiragana: きつね, kanji: ) meaning "fox". In Japan, the fox is said to have the power to change its appearance and its face; the many faces and appearances of the fox represent the different parts and directions of Kitsuné.[2][7]
