The Kooples have released a series of looks online which showcases their new spring/summer 2013 range – encouraging us mere-mortals to channel our inner Parisian.
Born in France, The Kooples is the epitome of chic. From their roll necks to their tailored suiting, there is a look of effortless sophistication that runs throughout each and every collection they produce.
The latest collection does not deter from their signature look. Staying true to their sharp, clean lines and refined silhouettes, the lookbook images prove just how versatile their clothing really is – each piece effortlessly transcends from day to night and from office to party. With all of their suits being sold as separates, jackets and trousers can be mixed and matched to create outfits that wouldn’t look out of place after-hours in the bars of Le Champs-Elysées.
The dark and edgy colour palette traditionally associated with the brand has been expanded to include bold summer brights this season – with blues, lilac and hot pink helping create a range of statement pieces that cannot fail to get you noticed. Tailored shorts and cropped trousers, which are paired with loafers, are also weather appropriate and help provide an undeniably European feel.
The suiting available from The Kooples is among the best in its price range. Catering for a variety of frames, tapered blazers fit in all the right places whilst three-piece versions will ensure you appear put together in any situation by streamlining your entire silhouette.
Mixing tones and textures seems to be a key technique in creating the look that the brand is pushing for SS13. Monochromatic tones of grey, white and charcoal are blended effortlessly, whilst contrast materials such as denim jackets, flannel shirts and wool suit trousers are clashed to great effect.
Overall, The Kooples have produced another timeless, versatile and wearable collection that allows you to develop your very own take on Parisian chic.
You can shop the collection over at Selfridges now.
