We Are Kindred Resort 19 Runway Collection
We drew inspiration from the art nouveau period and concentrated on how the movement drew its inspiration from flora and nature. Aside from the prints, the inspiration is seen in intricate line work and panelling, beautiful and exaggerated hem and necklines, and the juxtaposition of symmetry / asymmetry in silhouettes.
This collection really sees us broaden our range of fabrications – expect to see cotton broderies, luxe silks, exciting embossed organza and appliqué florals. Shapes are a little more dramatic this season – expect fluid ruffles in longer length maxi dresses. We are also showing black for the first time (floral of course!), sheer silk anoraks over timeless swimwear, floor sweeping gowns and belted party dresses. You’ll also see sheer layering, a touch of 80’s prom, high shine fabrications and unexpected colour combinations.
What we love about Kindred is the different takes on it and how many ways you can incorporate it into your wardrobe. Not everyone is up for a head to toe floral look (although many are and should be!), in this case we love the thought of our girl toughening up our florals with denim and leather.
In our office we all wear Kindred every day – with a trainer, an ankle boot or a great jean or denim jacket. Our girl also loves a party dress that makes her feel feminine and sophisticated, and also loves to have a lot of fun. We call our aesthetic ‘sexy pretty’.
