How lucky was I to spend an afternoon checking out KOKOON Fashion?!
I hadn’t even heard of KOKOON until Chrysa asked me to fill in while she was at BlogHer. I’m so glad she thought of me. I was treated to a great fashion show including items from the fall collection, as well as a fashion retrospective of the past 25 years!
The fall collection draws a lot of inspiration from jewel tones of Pantone’s fall colors. I also saw the decades of the mod 60’s, the easygoing 70’s, and the roaring ’20’s. There were lots of fun separates and gorgeous dresses. I was so impressed with how easy to wear the collection looked. It actually made me look forward to fall! Time to bring out the tall boots! Everything that Laine designs is really flattering to the body. It’s also created with materials that are easy to clean.
Laine Sou started selling her clothing 25 years ago. Her husband would take the clothing she made and bring it to boutiques. They haven’t looked back since! There have been highs and lows, but Laine always kept making great clothing. It’s all made here in Minnesota!
I lurved all of the looks, but here are some of my favorites. The pictures are not always great, so you’ll just have to check out the KOKOON website or connect with a representative to see the gorgeousness for yourself! The Fall line is available August 15th, 2013. Until then, enjoy the Summer Sale and Clearance!
I seriously may need to talk the husband into letting me get that dress. It’s flattering, and the colors are so gorgeous for fall!
I can’t wait to see what Laine and KOKOON continue to design!
