The AW 2015 Kohana collection combines the graphics and volumes of oriental small flowers “Kohana”. Geometric shapes on the patterns, florals and hand painted birds provide a leitmotif for the collection.
Taking inspiration from the ’60s and ’70s but doing it in a oriental and contemporary way, Kohana florals embrace the combination of denim and velvet exploring different silhouettes and techniques,volumetric and hard structures mixed with loose shapes on velvet gives a flair of cool artistry.
The collection features hand-painted coats with motifs of birds and flowers, culottes with wide legs, short-skirts with geometry shapes, vests that act like dresses, dresses transformed into tailored jackets and minimal pieces worn with high knee boots.
Reversible jackets with kimono sleeves, long navy blue velvet capes embroidered with silver guipure and ornamental motifs.
Effortless graphic shapes on velvet dresses, dimensional dressing with layers of wool and outerwear denim, touches of feathers in browns and blues, dazzling details and moments of sparkle sequins, furry collars, silver guipure and embroidered lace add the romantic touch.
Unexpected girlishness, challenges the typical fabrics to make them wearable, fun and unexpected. Desaturated palette of reds, intense yellows, golds, blues and green tones provide deepness and sensuality.
The artistic conceptuality of the looks and the graphic flowers of Kohana is translated into the garments, making a feminine and contemporary feel.
