The largest offering of Kowtow in the US, “Pace Forward” is a playful and rebellious collection which confronts sophistication with spontaneity. Sherbet inspired colors, rose, mint, and pastel checks contrast with rich olive, marigold and evergreen. “All of our fabrics are exclusive to us - every detail: texture, colour, yarn weight, hand feel, warp, and weft. They are all purposely chosen” says Gosia Piatek, Creative Director of Kowtow. Gosia acknowledges this as one of the ways Kowtow continues to stay original. entitled Pace Forward, is inspired by the simplicity of daily rituals, with hints of modernist architecture, contemporary art and minimalism. Kowtow makes clothing for independent women who don’t compromise on style or ethics.
The sustainable marketplace will also see the launch of Kowtow’s first ethical organic denim collection to the US market. “Denim is such a universal fabric, that it made sense for us to design our own while remaining true to our philosophy. We spent more than a year developing the perfect 12.5oz mid-weight ethical organic cotton denim with a classic indigo wash approved the by the Global Organic Textile Standard,“ says Piatek.
