Following in the footsteps of early explorers and pioneers, Kowtow presents an adventurous collection that inherits the wearer to the same gusto and courage displayed by icons Jeanne Baret, Bessie Coleman, Amelia Earhart & Beryl Markham when they set out to make history.
Borrowed from imminent surroundings, map grid lines and constellations used to help navigate travellers inspired this seasonâ€™s red mini check and observer print, while the infinity print encourages limitless exploration with its geometric precision.
This collection also sees a new textile development in certified Fairtrade organic cotton with ripstop fabric. As a fabric quality commonly used in outerwear, such as hiking and sailing, the weave creates a checkered pattern by using a special reinforcing technique which makes it resistant to ripping.
Looking at art, the fluidity of this seasonâ€™s sustainable Tencel articulated in mahogany is the perfect combination of colour and structure that can only be likened to the monumental and expressionist sculptures by Richard Serra. Playing with scale and shapes, Bauhaus textile designer, Gunta StĂ¶lzl, inspired the palette print, a check created by tying together all of the colours from the collection.
Drawing upon the craft and furniture of Clara Porset, traditional rattan woven chairs give texture in our new basket stitch knitwear. Always finding inspiration in nature; olive, indigo and pale blue organic cotton denim takes you from land
to sea and sky, while our iconic knitwear styles come in willow, light blue and marigold. Tying the collection together are Kowtowâ€™s Building Blocks, a collection of organic cotton basics taking botanical hints of periwinkle, lilac, dark green, and gold.
The collection will be available now in-store and online.Â
