Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Meet The Kooples

posted by on 25/06/2011

The Kooples is a French brand spawned by 3 brothers: Alexandre, Lauren and Raphael. A youthful label boasting an elegant mixture of rock n’ roll, urban styling and traditional smart tailoring giving it fresh modern twist in comparison to some of its competitors. The versatile label currently holds 3 independent stores and a concession here in London: more after the cut

Yes this brand has been around around for a while but I never really paid much attention to it mainly because my wallet didn’t agree with its prices. But I missed out because I actually really like this label, I love how traditional yet modern their collections are. They produce slim fitting and clean cut garments ranging from jackets, coats, suits and shirts for men and women. I tried on one of their shirts at their concessions store in Selfridges and I can confirm the fitting is on point.

In terms of prices… its very pricey. The other week I saw this jacket (above) for £180 and that was sale price! Had me debating with myself for short while before I regained control and stepped away from the garment. It’s a smart coat but unlike others I’ve seen of this type it’s got a few minor details  like the military style leather yokes on the shoulders, the leather detail underneath the collar and half way down the sleeve- makes a great finisher over work attire.

Their current collection seems to have a preppy college influence with modern flare and its quite impressive that each shot stencils a completely different look within the collection- shows variety. They’ve kept their “couples” campaign running as you can see which works really well with the preppy look.
