europe: the kooples by pete doherty collection

© the kooples - brit-flavoured french fashion

we knew he was a music and style icon, but pete doherty has got more up his sleeve and has now designed an exclusive and pretty cool men's and women's s/s 2012 collection for french brand the kooples. taking cues from his own extensive wardrobe of vintage pieces, doherty creates a poetic london-paris style axis, and one that references a cool alliance of music and image, superb cuts and meticulous detailing. the men's collection consists of 16 diverse pieces, and includes a beige herringbone three-piece suit, various matching shirts and two pairs of brogues. the women's collection is more concise, but features sexy items such as hotpants and a classic jacket. the men's and women's collection is tied together with a medal logo, a nod to doherty's love of military trinkets.

the kooples by pete doherty s/s 2012 collection is available at the brand's own stores and at select sales points across europe, including brown thomas [dublin], selfridges [london], house of fraser [london], el corte inglés [madrid] and galeries lafayette [paris].
