Inspired by cutting-edge music and street culture, the glamorous night life of Paris, and peak moments in fashion history, the French fashion label the Kooples weds British sleek with French chic. A family affair — founders Laurent, Raphael and Alexandre Elicha are brothers — the Kooples designs clothing for men and women who appreciate slim cuts, subdued colors and distinctive details such as welted chest pockets (a bright finishing touch on a man’s suit jacket), metal-tipped buckles on platform “rockabilly” shoes, or lace paneling on a solid-color women’s shirt. As its name suggests, the Kooples appreciates stylish couples — depicting them in its sexy and spontaneous ad campaigns.
