Kowtow's Autumn/Winter 19 Takes Inspiration From Famous Artists
This Autumn/Winter season, Kowtow has curated its own exhibition through an art inspired collection. New knitwear and organic cotton textures are inspired by the works of textile artist Anni Albers, structural steps and pleats reflect Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture, jacquard designs and seasonal prints lend bold colours and negative space from Andy Warhol, and pattern concepts from Sol LeWitt’s minimalist mazes. All tied harmoniously together in a collection that encourages meaningful dressing.

For Kowtow, the quintessential wardrobe is one that is both uniform and modular and has integrity to stand the test of time. Kowtow believes garments should be worn for their entire lifetime and design classic clothing for everyday wear.
Committed to fair trade production, all Kowtow fabrics are bespoke and designed from yarn. Kowtow values are considered for every garment: sustainable sourcing, fair wages, longevity and circularity. This is a slow process that takes over 16 months from design to season launch.
The latest collection is now available in stockists as well as online at kowtowclothing.com.
