Hello my lovelies and happy Wednesday! I have had this post in the plans for a few weeks, I discovered this new designer Kobi Halperin and felt in love with his garments.
I’m wearing one of his latest collection and he use a lot of embroidery techniques into it, something I read online in a interview about this jacket.
You utilise a lot of traditional embroidery and rich fabrications in your design, what techniques did you choose to explore in your collection?
KB: “I love learning about different traditional embroidery techniques and showcasing them into my designs. For the Amber jacket, I referenced a typical Suzani embroidery technique that comes from Uzbekistan. It’s a primitive impression of flowers and I loved how it portrayed a different, less realistic flowers on a coat. Everything I do always comes from my research. I love collecting pieces of history and bringing it into my work.
Born and raised in Israel to Eastern European parents, the designer worked previously as the creative director of Elie Tahari for 13 years, before moving on to become creative director for Kenneth Cole. In 2015, he decided to launch his own label, Kobi Halperin with a design philosophy to elevate the everyday through crafting beautiful pieces. His collections reflect the intricacies of his heritage through a mixture of traditional techniques and high-quality fabrications.
As most of you know how much I love, to express myself through clothing and wearing happy colours this jacket is totally me.
I also wanted to quickly mention that with his latest AW19 collection, The Creation of Beauty, having launched exclusively at Fenwick, I don’t know if they sell in the Newcastle store but you can find his pieces online.
