PFW: Koché – apocalypse now


Paris Fashion Week: Koché

Artificial Intelligence inspired a modern, utilitarian line up at Koché last night, with Christelle Kocher moving her aesthetic from true-sport to post-apocalyptic streetwear.

Juxtaposed within the setting of a 19th century Parisian theatre, Koché’s futuristic line-up came composed of easy to wear separates, updated in camo print or space-dye ombré.

Elsewhere, denim, jersey and wool came licked with metallic foils, most notably across a ruffled tank and cargo-pant ensemblé which benefited from the craftsmanship of a collaboration with Chanel-owned couturier Maison Lemairé.

In fact, it was this level of craftsmanship that allowed Kocher to step up her game for Fall; a smoking suit bathed in oyster-gold silk provided a demure new direction for this streetwear brand.- Anna Ross
