kapok celebrates female creatives

in recent seasons, without a deliberated idea behind, kapok has been bringing more and more brands that are founded by female designers to hong kong.  this outcome was made by our intuitive buyers who truly admire the designs, rather unconsciously, kapok became the cheerleader to these young businesses, and to celebrate and nurture many new generation of female creatives. 

swildens

Juliette Swildens grew up in a deeply creative family and is passionate about fashion. Her love of fashion led her to create her own brand in 2006.

influences from the 70s, 80s and 90s have come to nourish her designs and fashion culture. Swildens’ identity is at once bohemian and chic, rock and classic - all tinted with natural materials, refined colours and feminine cuts.

in each collection, the brand surprises with its mix of feminine and vintage styles, all associated with the classic features of menswear and chic Parisian style.

Juliette loves clothes with beautiful details that stand the test of time. the materials she chooses are always soft and comfortable.  the exclusive prints are a huge success every season. certain pieces have become iconic at Swildens: the overall, the man’s shirt, the smoking and the bohemian skirt give a look that is both casual and sophisticated.

alexa chung

this is our 2nd season to have Alexa Chung at kapok. the 4 year-old British IT girl label was very well-received in AW2019.   

at the heart of the brand, Alexa’s vision: to create clothes that people want to wear. combining Parisian chic with a New York edge, as well as the very British sense of humour, it is inspired by everything from Jane Birkin’s insouciance to David Hockney’s stripy sweater.

Alexa Chung prides itself on its unique approach to making clothes, combining distinctive fabrics and prints with classic tailoring alongside more feminine designs. the result is a carefully considered, alluring combination of prim, racy and rock ‘n’ roll, where frivolous party pieces interact with grown-up tailoring and classic silhouettes.

roseanna

an important new addition to kapok, Roseanna is a French ready-to-wear, accessories and shoes brand based in Paris.

each collection is a tribute to a city, a woman, an artist, a film. the richness of the colours, the materials, the blends naturally arise from the multiple inspirations of the designer. these collections are aimed at a woman looking for a stylish, easy and colourful wardrobe. 

aesther ekme

Aesther Ekme, founded in 2016 in Copenhagen by Stephane Park, is a leather goods label with a focus on purified and sculptural aesthetics.

growing up in Brazil to Korean parents, Stephane says that the many cultures she’s lived in throughout her life greatly inform her work. “i’m heavily inspired by Brazilian architecture of the 70s, as well as brutalism in general” she notes. She left Sao Paolo at 18 to study fashion design at Parsons in New York City, then going on to work for Alexander Wang in accessories.
