Old Khaki WOWed me at their recent #OldKhakiAW19 launch channeling retro-sport and modern heritage.
The event took place place at Colourlab in Woodstock where media and influencers gathered together to enjoy Old Khaki’s new Autumn/ Winter collection first hand.
You can expect a fresh new take on urban-adapted wardrobe staples that can take you from inner-city vibes to exploring the Stellenbosch Winelands looking 100 percent Instagram-ready.
The AW19 ladieswear range mixes urban casual with contemporary interpretations of iconic 70s and 80s silhouettes. The season begins with a bold palette of cream, rust and emerald on the heritage front; moving onto navy, grey and ochre with a touch of red in the sporting arena.
- Animal print knitwear
- Furry jackets in bomber silhouettes
- Branded sweat tops
- Windowpane check jumpsuits
- Colour-blocking roll necks
Shall we talk denim?
Alongside the core range of Old Khaki skinny and straight-leg styles, a new collection of silhouettes is ready to take centre stage. The standouts being a pinstripe mom jean and a skinny-fit black dungaree. Denim has gone slightly cleaner for winter, with elevated fabrications adding some lustre to the occasion.
Scarve it up
As always, the Old Khaki man and woman will have everything they need to round off their looks with daring detail.
Ladies’ scarves have been expanded into a beautiful selection of warm-handle versions in plains, checks and colour-blocking, as well as smaller (90 x 90cm) printed poly squares in everything from floral prints and dots, to plains, checks and stripes – ideal as neckerchiefs or for accessorising handbags or hair.
Beanies are still a wintertime staple for both men and women, with peaks not far behind. The Old Khaki woman can look forward to a beautiful collection of beanies with plenty of pretty pompoms.
Black leather bags are back…
As for bags, there’s plenty to be excited about. On the ladies’ side, the collection builds on key silhouettes in new colours with touches of sizzle coming through in the round shape, whip-stitched details, as well as the introduction of fabrications such as corduroy and suede in navy, yellow and rust, in the smalls offering. Oh and did we mention the leather belt bag is back? I’m in love with the Lillie Leather Belt Bag, R699 (below).
The new Old Khaki autumn/winter range will be available in stores and online in April. See more photos from the launch event below.
