ARISE L’Afrique-À-Porter: KLuK CGDT

Avatar photo



South African label Kluk CGDT design ready-to-wear, bridal gowns and couture collections. White is usually infused  into their seasonal collections.In their Autumn Winter 2008 collection they showcased  a few white pieces on the runway, so it is no surprise that for this capsule collection, they decided to go with a one colour theme and present all white pieces.

The pieces in this collection have a softness to them, that airy flow white exudes when combined with fabrics such as; satin, silks and lace which emphasizes the lightness that each piece embodies.

I would have liked to see more colours infused into this collection, as white makes the pieces come off as bridal. However it does do the collection a favour as the pieces are angelic and the lace inserts give them a romantic feel.

My favourite piece is the asymmetric detail dress, which is similar to their lavender piece  South African stylist Lidiwe Suttle wore to the ARISE Africa Fashion Awards. However, it  is reinvented here with the addition of feather details which we also see in other pieces.
