For fall, The Kooples dished up a collection destined for a youthful, urban woman out to flaunt her style. She had a broad choice of suit jackets — wide-lapeled, double-breasted, cropped, cinched at the waist, you name it — reflecting a current focus of the label.
Dresses were mostly short, and options included a puffy-sleeved wrap dress made from a leopard print, and, in an unusual departure from the brand’s mostly red and black palette, an airy yellow number, lined with discrete ruffles.
The brand continues to emphasize outerwear and included a tan, faux fur coat and white faux leather jacket, puffers and a black, furry bomber coat in the lineup. A few western touches edged their way into the lineup, including a tan jacket with a fringe running across the back.
