03 Aug A Sumptuous Season of Asian Influence | KLûK CGDT SS16 Collection
KLûK CGDT’s luscious new lookbook is a delectable combination of voluminous asian inspired forms off-set by hints of sleek 1950s elegance. The predominant hues of grape, burgandy, coral and tobacco exude a luxuriant density which is complemented by flowing elements inspired by holiday resort dressing.
The collection was showcased alongside the #KlukCGDTartisan collaboration with Levi’s and focuses on, “the artisinal quality of fashion, the couture, the exclusive, the made-ready-to-order aspect of it, which is what KLûK CGDT is all about”, say designers Malcom Kluk and Christiaan Gabriel du Toit.
The individual items creating each look are inspired by garements such as kimono gowns, kaftans, jackets, pencil skirts and cigarette pants. Beautifully made from imported silkscreen satin, burnt out velvet, brocade, guipure lace, crêpe and bouclé, each look embodies the notion of modern luxury fashion of which KLûK CGDT is reknowned for.
