South African Craftsmanship, International Appeal

Kumari Govender Label Haute Edit

Fashion Preview: Here’s a sneak peek of my soon-to-be launched clothing line…

I have always been a bit of a rebel when it comes to style and fashion; my imagination knows no boundaries. And that is why my inaugural designer pieces are a beautiful blend of Indian patterns, South African craftsmanship and Asian influences. I am talking about the HAUTE EDIT exclusive range of robes and kimonos that are all set to sizzle pool sides and casual soirees this Summer.

Beautiful, Bold Style Statements
I can do understated when I feel like it. But my debut in the world of stylish couture is all glitter, shimmer and pizzazz. From effervescent colours to luxurious fabrics to solid edgings of whimsical threadwork, these kimonos and robes are much more than convenience wear. They epitomise glamour that is effortless. They stand for breaking away from tradition and giving voice to the vibrancy inside.

In short, they are purely my signature style and a steal for anyone who appreciates the Style Society brand of fashion.

What Can You Expect?
Besides compliments and jealous green stares?
Well, a lot.

The pieces are mostly one-offs. You won’t see a whole horde of your friends emulating your jazz this season. The colour combinations range from greenery, glossy pink yarrow, subtle nudes to translucent peach. I have kept both warm and cool complexion tones in mind and have gone with bold hues that will bring out your natural beauty.

Since robes have graduated from boring “after bath” sleepwear options to the must-have piece for the season, I have added to their appeal with heavy shots of elaborate Indian handiwork. You can take your pick from delicate stone settings, metallic thread curlicues with the sequins HE (HAUTE EDIT) logo on the back. Deep comfortable pockets are a nod to the customary knick knack carrying capacity of robes and kimonos.

The designs are conceptualized from scratch and the pieces are rich in fine details. Availability understandably is limited. And the packaging as always will be an experience in and of itself. Watch out for the guilty pleasure.

Perfect gift for your BFF! Or a personal treat to celebrate the newness of 2017!

Head on over to the HAUTE EDIT store and place your order before stocks disappear.

A perfect blend of South African craftsmanship and Indian heritage straight to your door.
