Looks from Kowtow’s new unisex collection. Images supplied.
Kowtow have just launched their latest collection and it has us scrambling to our nearest store to get our hands on their brightly coloured pieces. The thoughtful brand is questioning the convention of gender by presenting a unisex capsule collection that provides space for anyone who is embracing a changing society. Focussed on easier dressing, the collection is the epitome of an essential and modular wardrobe, with bright colour pops and sustainable fabrics – this range is not one to be missed.
Gosia Piatek, Founder and Creative Director explains, “This isn’t a moment for us. Our design has always favoured cuts that fit off the body and encourage the wearer to build their own silhouette. It’s not about trying to dress one way or another, but to rethink how we dress.”
Inspired by Italian architect and designer, Ettore Sottsass, bold colours of grass, workwear blue, sun and lilac offer simplicity. Clean shapes express their fluidity with curved lines, boxy cuts and precise details to make universally flattering unisex silhouettes.
You can expect to see soft knits, button-up trans-seasonal jackets, boxy tshirts, scarfs and hats all in bright pops of greens, blues, yellows, lilacs and neutrals, made to be mixed and matched for matching sets or bold, colour blocked looks.
As always, Kowtow is committed to exploring the versatility of a single fibre, and only uses 100% Fairtrade certified organic cotton in the making of their clothes. Incorporating fibre into the beginning of the design process, Kowtow designs all their fabrics from the yarn; determining the weave, weight, stitch, and colour for all their fabrics and creating all their prints in-house.
