Brand: Kappa Kontroll

Season: Spring/Summer 2019

Key Pieces: Next to an extensive range of stand-out sport silhouettes, Kappa Kontroll’s high-visibility orange windbreaker steals the show.

Editor’s Notes: After launching its first women's collection last season, iconic Italian heritage brand, Kappa Kontroll, has mined its extensive archive for an SS19 collection that seeks to “redefine the festishisation of sportwear.” The spring/summer range recontextualizes the label's past pieces and experiences, to take it in a somewhat different direction inspired by the likes of the British “scally” (a roguish, self-assured young person in Northern English parlance). The season is defined by distinctive garments with powerful motives, which Kappa Kontroll attributes to the “movement of strong innovators and creative pioneers who refuse to be categorized.”

Additional references to British sporting culture can be seen throughout, materialized through pieces such as quarter-zip cycling jerseys, half-zip knits, and a range of color-blocked track pants. While it draws heavily from the label's own archives, the collection is balanced by a technical approach that has come to define contemporary sportswear.
