For Kowtow, ethical clothing does not simply mean more ethical supply chains, manufacturing, and labour conditions. Rather, such a commitment influences every aspect of the clothes that they make, including their designs. Against false notions of freedom, Kowtow embrace the restrictions of adhering to more ethical modes of design and production. The resulting garments are far from impeded, evincing anything from subtle elegance to structured grandiosity.
In their latest collection, the New Zealand label harness the power of block colours with floral patterns complementing the season’s lively palette. The label’s renowned knits take pride of place in this collection, adding texture and depth. Elsewhere, frills, stripes, and quilting add focal details to understated outerwear pieces and shirts that subtly adjust established shapes.
Crafted from textured soft organic cotton honeycomb stitch knit with raglan sleeves, the Kowtow Pioneer Crew is a stylish new take on the classic fisherman’s knit. Here in the seasonal chalk colourway, the honeycomb stitch of this classic-style knit sweater lends it a unique three-dimensional appearance. This relaxed-fit crewneck knit also features wide ribbing at the cuffs, neckline & bottom hem.
