Yes we are celebrating Kage's Spring Summer 14 collection having landed on our online boutique!
Bound by an effortlessly chic and bohemian way of life, the SS14 collection reflects both designers affinity with creating clothes that allow for the freedom of self-expression and individuality.
Soak up an iconoclastic, freewheeling approach to life, surf culture has officially moved off the shore. KAGE create waves with a laid-back, artfully undone look that belies a natural and unfussy approach to directional fashion. Bohemian in sprit, this Spring Summer surfer chic meets catwalk cool.
The seasons collection continues to unite the designer’s inspiration with raw materials, unifying the designs to become timeless collectibles. With fabric and texture as the starting point KAGE have created a collection of dynamic duos. Coastal paint shades; cue gnarly color solids in ocean-esque blues and sunset red, lend themselves to unexpected fusions that reimagine the boundaries when paired with the collections striking textural surfer girl prints, in hot red, graphic black, cool blues and purple hues.
The nonchalant ideal of easy, yet clever interchanging pairings epitomizes the KAGE girl. These surprising combinations are interwoven to create effortless summer dressing. Dual texture and directional carefree styles find their vibe in slouchy teas, crop tops, knee length skirts, racer backs, soft curved hemlines and sporty shorts and jackets.
Stylish to the core, KAGE has become the go-to brand for effortless fashion; directional yet utterly wearable and understated clothes that translate effortlessly from the catwalk to real life.
