Studio Kaprol’s spring/summer 2013 show embraces the experimental approach for which this group of young talents mentored by leading Turkish designer Arzu Kaprol is known.
Designed by Tolga Turan, Merve Uçar and Cansu Özsoy in collaboration with half a dozen accessories designers, the collection showcases uncommon materials and combinations.
Womenswear includes trench coats and other functional pieces in khaki tones set off with fluorescent yellow accents and stiletto heels, in a look that channels a hip version of the crossing patrol officer’s uniform.
Clear vinyl plastic is fashioned into umbrella-like sun hats and jackets worn over close-fitting dresses and skirts in delicate white fabrics.
Menswear features bright colour pairings and accessories that playfully riff on military decorations.
