Koché Fall Winter 2023
Koché, a Parisian fashion brand, launched their upcoming Fall / Winter 2023 collection during Fashion Week. Shot straight from the studio, the lookbook centered on where the magic happens. Sewing machines add a touch of originality in the background, emphasizing their high quality made either in France or Italy. The brand highlights sportswear staples as streetstyle apparel perfect for an everyday look or a night on the town. Details of oversized stitching outline bold shapes featuring dusky patchwork prints. Punk and rocker chic inspired grunge pants. Vibrant colors saturate dresses with a dark undertone. Furthermore, knitwear stands out among the lighter apparel for a contrast in colors and fabric. The designer behind the brand, Christelle Kocher, focuses on creating luxurious items of the highest quality. Her knitwear is the latest addition to the brand name with authentic Italian wool. She also emphasizes her dress designs for the upcoming seasons.
The Koché Lookbook
Simple knit work patterns transform into edgy cutout dresses. The dresses are maxi style and have a variety of colors like a burnt orange hue or a classic snow white. New details of puffy and big shoulder pads add some volume to the jackets’ silhouette. The designer exaggerates her work with creating oversized turtlenecks, jackets, and scarves that can be worn in a variety of ways. In addition, the jackets double as a cozy dress and have contrasting designs and patterns that coordinate with each other. Similarly, Alexandra Birchen, a German artist creates a motorcycle motif throughout the apparel. One of the looks showcases a flamboyant coat which is full of Lemarié feathers.
Review of the Collection
In conclusion, we love the versatility of this traditional knitwork and how it was modernized and gives more opportunity than just a simple sweater. Her dresses were fun and funky, bringing a new aesthetic to fall and winter fashion. In contrast, some of the pieces like the matching set of the red polka dot leggings and top felt out of place to me. Overall, I thought the collection was unique and brought a new meaning for knitwear.
