A while back I assisted stylist Alexandra Greenhill on this amazing lookbook shoot for K-Brat and I must say I was left in owe by the amazing garments, the structure, the fit, the materials, it all just worked so well together and looked beautiful on the female silhouette. My favourite piece from the collection however, is the cream coat, which I fell in love with..the mixture of cream wool and striking black leather was to die for, simply perfection!!K-Brat is a London based womenswear and accessories label founded in 2008 by fashion designer Keren Brat. After graduating from the London College of Fashion, Keren went on to work with a few London based designers before going onto start her own label.
This Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 collection-titled ‘The Sinister Crawl’ was inspired by the study of insects. The collection silhouettes, structures, pattern lines, volume and details demonstrate those of the world of bugs and beetles. The collection focuses on leisure day and night womenswear styles, combining sculpture-like pieces with high-quality, soft separates and outerwear. The garments are made up of many different fabrics such as nest wools and silks matched with contrasting man-made fabrics and brass fastenings along with the strong use of leather, this fabric combination results in an intriguing and exciting mixture of textures. As you can see above the colour palette for this collection is a mix of black, greys and creams with hints of yellows.
