Reinvigorating the label for spring summer, in-demand designer Carl Kapp breaks away from his mastery of breathtakingly modern evening wear and introduces a focus on ready-to-wear. Continuing to embrace excellence in innovative construction and finish, Precision channels the same level of meticulous detail into this debut design space.
Shot in Sydney by photographer Holly Blake and styled by the ever-talented Meg Gray; models-of-the-moment Holly Blake and Taylor Hills are all at once transformed into modern, self-assured sophisticates.
Expanding beyond sharp tailoring and impressive volume, this exciting new element to the Carl Kapp cast is luxurious and dexterous. With surgical accuracy, even the simplest of shapes stay true to the brand ethos and through painstaking pattern-making techniques result in garments that effortlessly envelope the body.
Kapp introduces striking, modern, precision-cut silhouettes to extend his offering to encompass casual nonchalant elegance. Soft and seductive deer skin leather, delicate Italian-sourced cotton and woven metallic-coated cotton provide a flawless podium for the designer’s hedonistic approach to textile selection. Careful folds, subtle drape and considered cuts balance out body skimming silhouettes.
Splicing together unexpected colour and fabrication combinations Kapp explores a relationship of reflected harmony in each new contour. Bold, vibrant shades of fuchsia, mermaid blue and sunset orange provide tempting contrast to subdued royal navy, saturated teal and crisp white.
The high standard and unique level of service clientele receive in-store, sees them returning time after time and devoting most of their wardrobe to the brand. Made in-house by expert tailors, to an exquisite level of finish, it is Kapp’s hands on approach to creating garments that continues to set his label apart amongst his peers.
Precision injects an agile, clean-cut and nonchalant manifesto that will surely garner a new guard of Carl Kapp connoisseurs.
