Our prints for Koché – Spring2015

Our latest digitale couture became physical French couture!!!?

From NowFashion.com:
Kocher aims to bring together a vision of urbane contemporary dressing spliced with the exquisite crafts seldom harnessed in the real world. “It’s a melting pot of Parisian romance, Asian color-clash, the New Yorker’s cool sportswear. There are easy nylon track pants and dresses requiring hours of embroidery to create,” the designer said, as her chill cast milled around in the corridor. Point in case, a lightweight parka delicately fringed with feathers, bejeweled crop tops, or fantastic low riding jeans with a singlet one-piece. Everywhere, pseudo ethnic silver jewelry (if your tribe is the neo-raver one) twinkled and tinkled.

This is the don’t-care-for-gender dress form of athleisure, a savant mixture of the trappings of 1980s, 1990s sportswear combined with the craftsmanship of couture.

All of it smacked of questionable youthful taste, but that would be missing the painstaking attention to details where snobbery might only see dubiously printed polyester and lurid laces. By deploying the arsenal of age-old crafts on the synthetic and man-made, is Kocher breaking the last taboo, or bridging a divide no longer necessary? For the Willow and Jaden Smith generation, Koché is exactly what couture means.
