Ladies, take it from someone who knows: the Kookai Autumn/Winter collection is sensational! Launched Wednesday night amid the stained glass windows and domed ceilings of the Royal Melbourne Exhibition Centre, this collection is a stunning mix of fun and sophistication, making Kookai THE label to be seen in this season.
The colours. The runway was dominated by black, with whites and grays also featuring heavily. There were surprise bursts of plum, and various blues.
Fabulous neckwear, in the form of chunky woollen scarves, high necks, dramatic v necks and halter necks that simply exude sensual sophistication.
Gold chains. Lots and lots of chains! Thin ones, multiples in swathes at varying lengths and thicknesses. Chains worn draped down backs, alone and by the dozen. Single gold chains with gold pendants, ballsy, feminine and sexy.
Feature zips, adding a modern touch to classic lines, and particularly stunning on coats and jackets.
Vibrant patterns. Bold geometric skirts and peplum tops, fabulous blue leopard prints, bright floral dresses, and large checks.
Coats and jackets to die for! Full length, hip length and knee length. Sleek, figure hugging and belted, others unfitted and more casual, funky leather biker jackets and classic belted trenches that never go out of fashion. High necks, plunging necklines, whites, creams, blacks, black and cream checks and greys.
So many belts! Especially black leather, buckled at the back, and bold gold to show of slim waists and perfectly fitted dresses and coats.
Elegant, sleek hair, long, slick and loose. Long, long ponytails. Some with sophisticated braids, all the epitome of chic.
Funky ankle boots, sexy knee high boots and killer heels. And the winning combination of ankle straps, middy heals, gold, black and leopard skin. Divine shoes for looking and feeling fantastic every day.
Whatever your personal style, there is something for everyone in this year’s Kookai autumn/winter collection. So whether your weakness is shoes or coats, dresses or bold gold jewellery, Kookai is the label for you. And this is their classiest offering yet.
