KOCHÉ is a rising designer brand founded in Paris by Christelle Kocher in 2015 and just arrived at HBX for the first time. With an innovative aesthetic by integrating high fashion, street culture and contemporary art, Kocher has been working with luxury labels like Bottega Veneta, Chloé, Emporio Armani, and more for the past 13 years. In 2010, she was named the artistic director of Maison d’Art Lemarié, a Chanel-owned couture atelier specializing in feathers. As of today, she’s the first designer ever to be offered the Centre Pompidou’s Bibliothèque as a venue after winning the 2019 ANDAM prize. Featuring patchwork and upcycled materials, KOCHÉ Spring/Summer 2020 collection encompasses an expansive array of heavy-pattern garments from polo shirts to dresses and track pants to skirts.
Designing with sustainability in mind, notable pieces are the Fitted Polo Dress and Technical Patchwork Parka. Detailed with contrasting panels and stripes, the Polo Dress comes with a gold-tone “K” embroidery on the front. The outerwear sees a side split hem with button closure, elastic cuffs and spread collar. Elsewhere, the Loose Trousers arrives with a matching dark beige hue, straight leg and 3 pockets style. Opt for the Wide Shoulders Sweater which features piping trims in black and white throughout for a voluminous touch. Rounding out the range is the Crazy Python Print T-Shirt. Offered in eye-catching multicolor patterns, the silhouette is emblazoned with a brand lettering at the chest.
