THE KOOPLES (Paris) Dress with Small Leather Collar

Proving that black is never boring, Parisian label The Kooples plays with lightweight texture and sheerness and adds a cool little collar -made of leather of the softest sort!- to this office- and play-appropriate short-sleeved dress.
A gentle waist elastic provides shape.
Simply switch shoes and accessories for an effortless transition from desk to dinner.
The Kooples (which takes its name from the way 'couples' is pronounced in French) has been growing most rapidly since opening its first stores just a few years ago. Much of the brand's marketing campaigns haven't been shot in studios with professional models, but on the streets or in clubs with real couples, as if a paparazzi had captured them. Dressed in The Kooples, attractive and youthful, the couples aren't always boy and girl, but boy and boy or girl and girl (case in point: Guenievre and Maud, above) - a nod to the 'live and let live' atmosphere Paris has always maintained, not to mention the androgynous vibe the Kooples wants to continue to mine.
