The Story We Tell — Building Block — Paper Pieces




"Their home is bright, reclaimed
warehouse; curated objects,
clues of their life."


Kowtow gathers pieces of information about a fictional couple for their latest collection titled 'The Story We Tell'. Scattered curated objects give clues of the residents: they are a couple, she is a florist, he is a writer. The label explores the details of their home to imagine their life and what they might wear. Their subdued utilitarian aesthetic sets the scene for the range due in stores worldwide from February 2016.

The collection embodies refined casualness punctuated by subtle elements of tailoring, versatility and oversized signature pieces.

The introduction of ethical organic cotton knitwear is a perfect fit for the labels sophisticated look and adds a heavier texture to the range.

The collection comes in rich colours and delicate textures: Olive and Bottle Green, Natural, Dove Grey and Chambray. Kowtow translates the floral patterns and rhythm from the story into the limited edition Botanical Print and a woven Navy and White Check poplin, both designed in-house and custom-made.

Most sought after styles this season include the Journal Dress, Things in Common Culottes, Two of a Kind Dress.

‘Paper Pieces’ is Kowtow's capsule collection due in-store April 2016 and reflects on the art of creating a story. The contrasting Paper Pieces print adds a graphic rhythm to the range. The collection consists of versatile pieces that complement each other to create Kowtow’s iconic silhouettes.

Building Block is the labels range of ethical organic cotton everyday basics designed to be layered with collection pieces or worn as separates.

Kowtow ensures that it only works with a transparent, fair and sustainable production chain from seed to garment. Each collection is entirely made from Global Organic Textile Standard certified cotton and fair trade certified by the Fairtrade Labelling Organisation. Buttons are Italian made from recycled hemp and the range is sea freighted worldwide in biodegradable packaging.

The Story We Tell, Building Block and Paper Pieces will be available from February 2016 through retailers worldwide in New Zealand, Australia, USA, Europe & Asia as well as online at www.kowtowclothing.com.
