Sophia Kokosalaki Womenswear A/W10

A personal vision of the Parisian lady plays out.

PhotographyMorgan O'Donovan

Sophia Kokosalaki has made Paris her show home for just over five years and so she felt it washigh time to dedicate her latest collection to the city and its fashion characteristics that she became enamoured with as a child visiting the city. Visions of the late 70s-80s Parisian woman plays out in a series of easy, breezy beige-toned looks; draped trenches, slinky shirt and trousers and an effortless scarf around the neck. Metallic fabrics draped and twisted into little cocktail dresses, one-shouldered tops and blouses (reviving the 70s penchant for a sexy shirt). Kokosalaki's Grecian roots began to prevail a bit more with the toga-esque tunics featuring a slashed one-shoulder geometric motif that also introduced a deep red hue. The lush ornateness at the end of the show recalls shapes of Greek landscapes as leather strings snake in waves to clad dresses and create structure and long beads are lined up and clustered for mesmerising effect.
