The Kooples fall/winter 2017

The Kooples Channels Rock-and-Roll for Six-Part Collection

Last week in Paris, The Kooples presented its new men’s fall/winter 2017 collection “After The Show”—a six-part collection inspired by artistic director Alexandre Elich’s favorite songs from the 1960s and 70s. In all six offerings—Psychedelic Sounds, Beat Royalty, Punk Dynasty, Mystic Riffs, Folk Requiem, and Band of Gypsies—we saw influences from the rock ‘n’ roll era, with modern pieces creating structured silhouettes atop casual and relaxed fits.

With plenty of open blazers and bombers, cinched or rolled at the wrist, we also caught sight of some leather jackets and long coats for the forthcoming chilly months. In place of a breast pocket, or clad on the collars, for many of the edgy pieces we noticed a cluster of pins—some from Parisian jewelry company Harpo, and many with images of the world’s greatest hit bands from the ‘60s like The Who and Jimi Hendrix, among enlarged stars, safety pins, keys, and skulls. We also made note of two new black hats, a belt loop biker chain, and an array of new styles for footwear. Women too got a few new offerings with studded shoes, lace dresses, and Sergeant Pepper-esque jackets—topped with another longer coat or belted at the waist with a thick, gaudy belt.
