A complex beauty

June 26, 2006

(Sophia Kokosalaki s/s 2006)

Sophia Kokosalaki’s work is all over the place (eg. costumes for the 2004 Athens Olympics’ opening and closing ceremonies, capsule collections for TopShop) but you won’t hear too much media hype about her. She’s had her label for seven years after graduating from St. Martins, recently switching over to the Paris circuit where her work has been garnering great reviews.

But her work doesn’t need to be spoken for. Because when you see an amazing leather jacket such as this with such intricate detailing and complexity that in the end somehow looks terribly effortless, you cannot think anything but that the creator is an extreme talent, her vision strong and unwavering.
