Soft knits, cosy yet beautifully manufactured wools and mohair, and stunningly detailed crochets epitomize the autumn winter collection of Kylee Davis. The New Zealand designer who was quickly snatched up by the exclusive retailer, Browns London after her first season, is making rapid progress in the local and international fashion industry.
The launched collection, entitled “Winsome Jackie Winter”, showcases a range of loose, delicate knits handcrafted in New Zealand from the finest yarns. A story told through the body of an imaginary muse, the collection encapsulates and reflects upon global fashion through a kaleidoscope of Davis’ background in New Zealand.
The label’s collection maintains its exclusivity, with only 15 pieces produced per style. A soft, earthy colour palette of reds, blues, blacks and browns embodies the frosty season with stylistic perfection, whilst artisan silhouettes give the term ‘woollen jumper’ a whole new meaning in terms of fashion forward. The sartorial fall of hand knitted fabric display a skilful and talented understanding of each curve and crevasse of each piece, resulting in a flawlessly structured, effortlessly beautiful collection.
With a strikingly chic Melbourne debut, Kylee Davis proves that she is here to stay. A one-of-a-kind collection perfect for your autumn winter wardrobe, a definite label to keep an eye out for this season.
