The Kooples has been a Parisian staple since the brand was created by the three Elicha brothers – Alexandre, Laurent and Raphael. The name itself is a clever word play on the word ‘couples’ and has since expanded all across Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.

The Kooples Spring 2018

While the brand is known for its signature skinny jeans and exquisite tailoring, The Kooples Spring 2018 collection takes a more urban approach while still maintaining the rock n’ roll aesthetic fans have come to love. Inspired by the films of Jim Jarmusch, the collection reflects an even more fearless approach to dressing the modern man. Classic suiting elements have been enlarged and are now oversized, tightened at the waist by belts that hang down almost to the knee. Similarly, denim is lose fitting and has been given raw edges and is faded to give the look of being continuously worn. T-shirts in white and a vibrant yellow have been printed with a guitar motif, referencing the rock music theme bestowed by The Kooples in previous collections. An inverted text print of ‘The Kooples’ has bee printed across the front of one of the shirts. Silk pyjama shirts and japanese kimonos are worn over printed  t-shirts for a very loungewear look.Bomber jackets, like the trousers, are worn oversized and have been squared from the back to create a far more interesting silhouette. This suggests a departure from the hyper tailored image The Kooples already excels at. These jackets are patterned – in camo print and snarling leopard heads. Following on from collaborating with Puma, track shoes feature prominently in this collection, reflecting a nod to the sportswear, 90s skate culture and generally a more athletic look from The Kooples.
