Brand's Watch | Kökler SS 2015 The roots of KÖKLER collection descend from the Italian folklore tradition. It is not merely a mention or reference to ethnic motives of an ancient heritage but a thorough study of the creative process in handicraft, technique and the cultural background from which these motives are derived.
Kökler adopts the same creative process applied in the fine arts: research aesthetics, look for inspiration, new shapes and forms and unique pieces and manufacture manually.
The result is then subject to further research and eventually a piece is transformed into a new fashion item. Clothes metamorphose into a canvas on which textures and contrasts interpret colours and light, the skin being drawn to chiffon, unveiling audacious cuts accentuated by an accomplished craftsman.

Designers we love | DIORALOP AW2014-15. DIORALOP collections are inspired by Polaroid pictures, which were created through intentional spills of chemicals and their exposure to different temperatures. This technique yields various colours and patterns, which are digitally printed in the UK, using variety of luxurious fabrics. Inspiration is drawn from subcultures, street fashion and issues with an emotional impact. Andreja’s taste for cut and deconstruction perfectly balanced with Maja’s vision of print and textile manipulation. Every season designers like to tell stories in different ways, using ambiguous fabrics, proportion and silhouette. DIORALOP designs are for person that is uncompromising, aware and individual.
The Croatian duo met in Zagreb, which lead to the launch of their label. Andreja obtained degree at Faculty of Textile and Technology in Zagreb/Croatia. Graduated from Central St. Martins College of Art and Design in 2009 specializing in womenswear, whilst expanding knowledge interning at Alexander McQueen studio. Maja is an architect, with strong sense of texture and style.
