The bo­hemian spirit of The Kooples’ new line

Youth­ful wan­der­lust and laid-back fes­ti­vals in­spired The Kooples’ Sun­rise col­lec­tion. Draw­ing on ref­er­ences from Wood­stock to Coachella, the three founders – brothers Alexan­dre, Lau­rent and Raphaël Elicha – cu­rated the per­fect care­free wardrobe of printed dresses, peas­ant blouses and em­broi­dered ki­mono jack­ets. ‘The col­lec­tion is a trib­ute to an In­dian sum­mer, imag­ined through a va­ri­ety of colour­ful fab­rics and flo­ral com­bi­na­tions,’ says Lau­rent. ‘Fluid and airy sil­hou­ettes are de­signed for a bo­hemian woman, but with cow­boy boots and stud­ded belts that nod to The Kooples’ rock ’n’ roll spirit.’ Sun­rise is the third edi­tion of the brand’s high­sum­mer cap­sule, and part of its revo­lu­tion­ary 12-col­lec­tion fash­ion cy­cle. The range also in­cludes new lim­ited editions of the Emily bag in beaded suede and with ex­ag­ger­ated, flow­ing fring­ing. char­lotte davey
