»»在上個月將公司收歸私有後,設計師同名品牌Kenneth Cole企圖脫胎換骨。在新任創意總監顧問Kobi Halperin主導下,最新春季系列展現別於以往的新穎樣貌。品牌創辦人表示:「春季女裝系列多了些女性特質、更加柔和,也更加舒適。」此外,設計師還巧妙將北非與中東元素融入,體現於鉚釘、珠飾與刺繡等細節手工裝飾,加上輕透布料與層次搭配設計,讓系列女裝呈現摩登休閒樣貌。

男裝部分同樣延續休閒特質,如仿舊騎士皮夾克搭配麻質休閒褲、西裝上身搭配寬鬆百慕達短褲,加上手工刺繡元素與潑灑效果印花,完美展現都會雅痞與遊牧民族造型的衝突混搭。此外,Kenneth Cole透露,計畫明年2月重返時裝週,期望藉由此舉,能讓品牌朝時尚核心靠攏。

而以色列裔創意總監顧問Kobi Halperin原任設計師同名品牌Elie Tahari創意總監,於去年底離職。Elie Tahari表示與Kenneth Cole是朋友,Kobi雖轉投他營,相信他在新東家會有不錯發展。有趣的是,品牌Kenneth Cole前任創意總監Ingo Wilts反而轉投Elie Tahari門下,擔任品牌創意總監,2廂互換人事頗具戲劇性,讓人不禁期待兩個品牌往後將如何發展。««

»»Under the lead of the creative director Kobi Halperin, the brand Kenneth Cole unveiled their newest spring collection. Kenneth Cole said, “Spring collection is more feminine than ever.” In addition, there are many elements from Northern Africa and Middle East with the decorations of metals, beads, and embroideries. The Kenneth Cole 2013 women collection expressed a modern casualness within it.

For the men collection, the casualness continued through the vintage knight jacket and oversize suit. The yuppy style is expressed through the mix match of different element. In addition, Kenneth Cole mentioned their return to fashion week next Feburary.

Further, Kobi Halperin was Elie Thari’s creative director, but he left the brand last end of the year. Since Elie Tahari and Kenneth Cole are good friends, the leave was done peacefully. Interestingly, Kenneth Cole’s former creative director left the brand also and joins Elie Tahari.««
