Feather & Stitch scoop a UK first for SS/14 with Danish designer Kokoon
Saturday, 15 February 2014
My favourite London boutique has just shared some extremely exciting news with me… They will be featuring Danish designer Kokoon in their SS/14 collection. This is exciting on two levels; firstly the clothes are divine being made of the highest quality silk that has been cut oh so perfectly that it drapes elegantly and effortlessly as you wear it. Secondly, at the time of going to press Feather & Stitch will be the only boutique in the UK to stock this scandi-cool brand. So there's almost no chance of experiencing S.O.N. (same outfit nightmare) wearing Kokoon.
Based in Copenhagen, Kokoon was launched in 2008 by Nanna Søbirk with the ethos of being timeless rather than in fashion (music to my ears). Designed to be cross-seasonal, Kokoon's collection is elegant, wonderfully feminine and yet simple to style into a masculine inspired look to emulate the 'woman in menswear' trend currently achieving front row appeal with editors and fashion bloggers at London Fashion Week.
I love the June blouse and the Luella dress but it's the Betty jumpsuit in monochrome leopard print that will be the workhorse of my wardrobe this summer. It will pair brilliantly with courts for a ladylike look (as shown) or to embrace the menswear look wear it with casual slip-ons or metallic brogues. A well cut blazer or jacket will elevate the look to suitable day or work wear then for cooler days throw on a chunky, oversized sweater to work the jumpsuit as cropped trousers. Sublime.
The Kokoon collection will be available in limited quantities online and in the Feather & Stitch boutique from today. Race you to it ladies.
