Celebrate summer with some striking threads from Melbourne’s Kloke
One of the only ways to cope ever-present heat is to dress accordingly. That means ditching the heavy fabrics in favour of shorts and breezy pieces. Kloke is going above and beyond for its summer collection Novarupta, which pairs quality materials with eye-catching patterns and prints across garments for men and women.
Since emerging on the Australian fashion scene in 2011, Melbourne-based label Kloke has slowly but surely developed into a powerhouse of cutting-edge fashion. With collections filled with easy-to-wear clothes that complement and enhance existing wardrobe fillers, founders Amy and Adam Coombes has been unable to put a stylish foot wrong across its varied collections. The latest range to come from the brains behind the brand arrived in time for the summer period, and features a host of comfy clothing that will reduce the heat – that is unless you are piecing together an outfit that is straight fire. Novarupta has been influenced by the destructive beauty of nature, specifically that of volcanoes of Hawaii and Alaska’s Katmai Valley of 10,000 smokes.
The range features garments that blend sophistication with a casual bent, exemplified in pieces such as the women’s skirt with the vibrant Frenquency print, breezy dresses with off-white stripes, washed-denim jeans, patterned totes and hats. For the gents, shoppers can get their hands on tan jackets, track shorts made from Japanese cotton and caps to slap on your noggin. Fabrics such as enzyme-washed denims, patterns influenced by seismic waves and palettes of colour incorporating pastels and earthy notes set the collection apart from other summer styles, evoking a spirit of travel and adventure.
