If you’re not already a Kobi Halperin fan, I’m happy to introduce you. This designer’s Fall 2016 women’s clothing collection is rooted in idyllic, romantic looks executed in luxurious textiles with superbly crafted artisan details. We’re not surprised that Kobi recently was named one of the newest members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, the non-profit trade organization for North American designers of fashion and fashion accessories.
Here, I’ve chosen a few of my favorite Kobi pieces from the fall lookbook. I especially like the way so many of his blouses, skirts, pants, coats and scarves can be layered and interchanged. Bloomingdale’s price points begin at $200.
Born in Israel in the 1970s and raised in a home with deep Eastern European roots, Kobi grew up surrounded by hand-carved ornamental furniture, embellished tapestries and beautifully framed paintings detailed with brushed metals. This in-demand fashion designer continues to draw inspiration from the intricate details of his nostalgic past while giving today’s woman a modern, feminine look.
Kobi Halperin launched his eponymous New York-based label in 2015. Formerly, he was the Creative Director at Elie Tahari and Kenneth Cole. Today his own label has expanded internationally.
