YOOX launches an unprecedented collaboration with designer Folake Kuye and her brand FKSP through a capsule collection created exclusively for YOOX.
Conceived and developed in the sunny Los Angeles, the capsule features maxi dresses, hyper-feminine brightly-colored tops and trousers as well as jumpsuits with floral prints: accessible pieces with a modern retro feel, perfect for spring and beyond!
The collection focuses mainly on details and on a careful and accurate construction: billowy sleeves, cinched-waists, crisp pleating and floral prints among the mix – a look for every mood. The silhouettes are soft and vintage-inspired and recall retro-style elements, reinterpreted in a modern way.
The collaboration between the Nigerian designer Folake Kuye and YOOX was born through a mentorship programme led by Federico Marchetti, Chairman of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP, for aspiring entrepreneurs from backgrounds traditionally under-represented in the fashion sector.
We as a team are incredibly excited about this collaboration. I have been a YOOX customer for almost 2 decades, so to be presented with this opportunity is a full circle moment. The collection is beautiful, worldly, elegant and timelessFolake Kuye
